Introducing the new Carmen Mini Dress. A playful, feminine silhouette with full sleeves, an open back with ribbon tie detail, smocked bodice for comfortable, versatile fit and a mini length. Carmen was designed to soak in the summer sun and evoke the romance of European city streets. Crafted from organic linen in timeless Natural. We appreciate the natural beauty of linen's undyed color and are excited to highlight it in our Natural colorway.

This piece was made in a woman-owned factory that creates financial freedom for female artisans by providing living wage employment and meaningful employment and community in the workplace. In addition to choosing natural materials that are earth-friendly, this piece is carbon neutral through a carbon offsetting program with Grow Ahead.

Luz Saldana, one of the artisans behind our sustainable knitwear collection, shares how knitting is more than a job—it’s a path toward her community’s goals.
“We started out as workers so that later we could open our own workshop. We were growing and learning step by step, learning new techniques from each of our workers. Now, we are the second generation who is involved in the whole process.
We aren’t just making a basic knitted garment. With every design, we make art so each design becomes a challenge that we always try to successfully bring to life. In this way, work is generated for a whole community of people.
Our work helps us to improve ourselves and learn something new and necessary every day to grow as a workshop and as a company. That includes continuous improvements in the production process, always in a responsible way that maintains the best standards. We always want to do our best.
I would like those who purchase our work to know that behind each piece is not only one person but many, who were able to achieve or move forward to reach their goals through knitting.
By respecting the principles of fair trade, we all benefit, not just one of the chains. This includes the environment because the garments, we make are not fast fashion.”
