What does this word mean? For many it means "a deal" or something very inexpensive. To some others & to us it means something different: What do I value? Value for us equals appreciation.
-The literal definition of the word: The regard that something is held to deserve; the importance, worth, or usefulness of something.-
For us value means something you care for that has meaning to you, an appreciation. An appreciation for high quality, unique & individual style & regard for a craft. We strive to create custom & offer ready to wear pieces that stand the test of time when well cared for. Fast & cheap fashion as we all know is adding to pollution rates & creating often times unsafe and very poor wage working conditions. And the pollution rates of fast fashion are climbing at a dramatic speed.
While people bought 60% more garments in 2014 than in 2000, they only kept the clothes for half as long. -Business Insider We strive to craft beautiful and unique clothing made ethically and with great quality of material as well as skilled labor. We strongly believe it is better to own fewer high quality items than many more inferior quality items if you can. We also have found in our own lives as well as in conversations with clients this to be true: If you love something & you value it, you go to it again & again. If you like how it looks on & appreciate how it was made the actual "cost per wearing" drops dramatically, verses something that you just have to wear. Something that you try to never put on unless you absolutely must. So possibly consider investing in high quality, well made pieces that also make you look & feel great. Because it's still so often true... Less is more.
