Ace & Jig

Website: aceandjig.com

Description: effortless clothing made from our own custom woven textiles, designed by us and made thoughtfully by artisan weavers in India.

in 2009, we set out to create a seasonless women’s collection from one fabrication: our own yarn-dye, woven fabric. we wanted to create timeless garments from our own textile designs, as interesting in texture as in color and pattern. effortless clothing that could be worn in many ways, for many years. we are constantly inspired by our own ever-growing textile collections. at the start of each new season, we sit down with our most exciting finds—from the feedsack bags of antique french linens to japanese boro quilts—and begin to create our own woven story.

our search for the ideal manufacturer led us to India, where we found experienced textile specialists weaving on ancient wooden hand looms. several times a year we travel there and work one-on-one with weavers to create our authentic fabrics. our indian partners share our core values and practice the holistic kaizen philosophy of continuing to improve. not only do they provide free childcare, but they also use reclaimed water to grow organic produce for their employees.

our colors and silhouettes shift, but each collection is anchored by the stripe. we believe yarn-dye stripes, whether created by alternating textures or through pops of saturated color, are an iconic and timeless medium, and an endless source for reinvention.

Trash looks better on you than it does polluting the planet. That’s why we turn old plastic bottles, fishing nets and other waste into bras, leggings and shorts you’ll never want to throw away. When we started Girlfriend Collective our first goal was to be as transparent as possible. So many companies tout transparency but only offer flashy headlines instead of substance. We chose every part of our process, from our raw materials to our facilities to our partners, with care. We also discovered quickly that high end fit and feel is not a matter of cost, it’s a matter of time. We take the time to make sure every single one of our designs is so beautiful that you won’t cycle through it the next time you look through your closet. Beyond that, we wanted to find a community of people who cared about where their clothes come from as much as how they look. We’re lucky to have found you. Take a look around, we’re glad you’re here.

Sustainabar

Website: sustainabar.net

Description: Saving the earth, one bar at a time.

Americans discard about 33.6 million tons of plastic each year, but only 9.5% of it is recycled, according to Columbia University. Much of it ends up in landfill, where it takes up to 500 years to decompose. According to Johnson & Johnson, more than 552 million shampoo bottles alone are dumped in landfills each year and another 165 million tons is dumped into the ocean. THIS NEEDS TO STOP.

Our mission is simple: to convince people to replace BOTTLES with BARS. Many of the things that you buy in plastic bottles — including shampoo, conditioner, laundry detergent, dish soap and lotion — can be concentrated into a bar. A bar that you use until it’s gone and that leaves not plastic container behind.

We try to use as many natural ingredients whenever possible. We also use recycled materials to package and ship our bars.
