Get to Know the Ethical Brands We Partner With

Written by Cecilia Foltz

• 

Posted on July 27 2022

All of the brands we partner with are women-owned #girlpower  We also strictly partner with brands who use ethical factories that utilize ethical practices, ensuring fair wages & safe working conditions. Many of our brands are small businesses & either hand make the product or employ artisans to hand make items, many of which use traditional methods. 

We are so proud to be able to support other women-owned businesses & contribute to fashion in an intentional manner that isn't detrimental to people or the planet, because what you wear matters, both to you & humanity.

We hope you love 'our' brands as much as we do!

ètre

être MEANS "TO BE" | "BEING" Starting early in 2020, être's creative team started the brand to challenge the existing idea that nice things should not cost a lot and must be comfortable that you can go from home-to-air-to-street.

Creating apparel that carries over from home-to-air-to-street, into a life lived consciously, takes mindfulness one step further: a beautiful life celebrated with forward and simple designs. Capturing what’s trending in contemporary fashion with the collections is how étre can travel beyond home-wear. Luxury meets practical in every collection. 

By skipping high-cost retailers, étre can invest in high quality without the price tag.
