Sustain Kat’s Holistic Approach to Sustainable Clothing
At Sustain, the mission is to produce top-quality, timeless basics using 100% natural materials throughout manufacturing. Their commitment to ethical sourcing and craftsmanship means every naturally dyed item benefits the planet and its inhabitants.
Sustain’s dedication to sustainability extends from its choice of fibers to threads, dyes, and tags, all 100% natural and eco-friendly.

Their goal isn’t just to reduce their environmental footprint and eliminate it.
