As champions of a bright future for the planet and the people who inhabit it, we actively work towards positive change.
From product origins to process and print to final stitch, we conscientiously select whom we work with, what we use and how we use it. Our partners share our standards. Our materials respect the land. And whenever possible we work with local manufacturers.
We work hand-in-hand with our artisan partners globally to design, develop and manufacture handloomed or handknitted pieces for each collection. To date, these artisans hail from India, Bolivia and Guatemala. We are constantly learning from them and are inspired by the ways they bring our vision to life through centuries-old craft traditions.
In order to further engage with our community, we collaborate seasonally with artists working in other mediums to bring print designs to life. The vision begins on our side with inspiration for motif and color pallette. We then pass the torch to the artist, and ask them to infuse it with their signature aesthetic and expression. The result is a beautiful meeting of creative minds.
Made in New York City
New York City has been home to American designers and garment manufacturers for generations. We would like to be a part of the next generations of designers who keep the work here. While our collections are inspired by faraway places, their lifeblood comes from New York. Our factories, which we visit weekly, and our studio, where all the magic happens, are both in the heart of the garment district.
Sourced in the USA
Though most raw material manufacturing has gone overseas, there are still some apparel industry partners producing fabrics, trims and treatments in the United States. Heritage denim mills, namely Cone Denim in Greensboro, North Carolina, provide all of the denim for where Mountains Meet collections. Aside from the collection, we try to engage American vendors for all of our business needs, such as packing and shipping materials, printers, labels, shopping bags and more.
The fashion industry is the fifth largest emitter of CO2 on the planet. This isn’t a fact we’re proud of, but we are committed to changing this statistic. We source textiles and yarns that are gentle on the environment and or use natural materials in their finishing process. Whether the material is dyed naturally and harmful chemical-free, or made of organic fibers, we’re drawn to processes and results that do no harm and support industry best practices.
