Quality Materials

For the Fall 2023 Season, I am thrilled to announce that our wool overcoats will be made from 100% RWS + NATIVA™ certified domestic wool woven at American Woolen.

This has been no small feat, and I am extremely proud to be able to share this with you. I have been researching the American wool supply chain for the past 7 years and attempting to piece it back together after decades of off-shoring.

The fabric begins with the wool fibers that are harvested from Shaniko Wool Co, processed at Chargeurs, and woven at American Woolen bringing you a 100% American wool cloth from fiber to finish. (Sewn in Chicago)

RWS (Responsible Wool Standard) certification recognizes only the best farming practices globally and was created by The Textile Exchange to recognize farms that take a progressive approach to land management and animal welfare. 

NATIVA™Regen in a Regenerative Agriculture certification that recognizes holistic farming practices that promote healthy ecosystems and preserve biodiversity.

It has long been a goal of mine to be able to work with an American fabrics so that I could provide better transparency into my own supply chain, reduce greenhouse gases, and engage with USA manufacturing efforts.

What is most exciting to me about this beautiful fabric (apart from it feeling  amazing on the skin) is the pioneering efforts toward sustainability it brings to a  domestic textile industry, which has suffered for far too long.

While I work continue to work toward incorporating this fabric and more American-made fabrics into my line, some of my current stock fabrics will continue to be either imported and/ or finished in the USA using imported fibers.

Most of the component parts that make my coats such as linings and fasteners are imported, and will most likely continue to be imported while we rebuild the American supply chain. However, it is on my to-do list to be able to one day deliver you a 100% American made product!

My wool overcoats are fully lined, using high end, quality materials that keep your warmth and protection in mind. Of utmost importance of me is that my coats are designed to function and keep you protected from the weather, rather than just top-off your outfit or check a box.

Style, wearability and performance is what will ultimately bring you to love your coat and this continues to be my number one priority!

While I enjoy the sustainable properties that natural fibers bring, in some cases, synthetic fibers provide better water-repellency, thus giving them superior functionality for raincoats. I take great pride in bringing you quality construction and this same pride extends to my fabric selections.
