Do you have physical stores?

Not yet! it's definitely something we're thinking about.

for right now, you won’t find any brick and mortar store, for a few reasons.

Price: we are able to avoid huge markups by not having a traditional retail spot.

Eco Awareness:

Online vs Traditional:

Energy: currently running a brick and mortar store takes a lot of energy. we’re constantly looking for options to minimize our environmental impact. and that means e-comm.

#DYK an online store uses about 30% of the energy as traditional retail!

Hangers: Without a traditional retail space, we’re able to significantly reduce the number of hangers we need. We still have to use some, but we stretch the life of our recycled hangers regardless, and reuse whenever we can!

Plastic: Did you know, the average family goes through 1500 plastic bags a year?! It takes 12 MILLION barrels of oil to manufacture enough bags just for america. We HATE that and we have opted in for only 100% post consumer mailers when we send you a package. Plus, without a storefront, we don’t need to use any shopping bags!
