My name is Gloria Yuen and I am the founder and designer of Our Goods.
We all have moments when we see that cute dress or shirt in the store and we love it. We need it. We wear it a few times and then it sits in our closet for a couple (or a few) months, and then we get rid of it. Trends come and go. Cheap clothes shrink, tear, and disposed; most of which are made of pesticide-grown cotton and dyed, treated, and/or bleached with harmful substances, making fashion one of the leading causes of pollution.
Every piece in our closet should be our favorite. Pieces we can wear all season, every season. No disposable trends, chemicals, and unethical sweatshops. Just simple, honest clothes.
I started the brand because I was deeply disappointed in how wasteful, polluting, and harmful the fashion industry isfor people and the planet. I made it my life goal to try and combat this problem. Our Goods is a one-woman team, with products made from all plant-based fabrics. Each piece is handmade one by one right in my home-workshop. All components, including labels, tags, and packaging are all eco-friendly or recycled (and packages are shipped carbon-neutral!). If we all buy consciously, it does make a difference, however small. Just tell your friends.
Buy less, wear often :-)
