Mallory Bloom strives to be a sustainable clothing brand.
By adhering to the slow-fashion, made-to-order model, as a designer, seamstress, and business owner, I have room to learn, pivot, and add new sustainability measures companywide that bigger brands don’t have room for.
I’ll never say Mallory Bloom is 100% sustainable, because that simply isn’t realistic. But I will promise you Mallory Bloom will never be part of the dishonest green-washing movement. I believe being sustainable incorporates more than just organic fabric.
Some of the things I do around here include:
- Making over 95% of the clothing on an on-demand, made-to-order basis, thereby reducing waste.
- Releasing two collections per year with additional pieces and fabrics in between collections, focusing on slow-fashion.
- Designing, cutting, and sewing is done by me in the U.S. from my home studio keeping expense consumption low, with emphasis on quality over quantity.
- Personally sourcing organic and eco-friendly fabrics, again focusing on quality.
- Incorporating recycled and recyclable products in packaging and marketing materials.
- Donating fabric scraps so they can be used by other creatives.
