They prioritize small batch collections and slow fashion with a minimalist sensibility. CAES produces elegant styles with a quality to be worn year after year by using ethical supply chains and materials with small environmental footprints.
Ethical business practices are essential to our core values and guide which brands in which we choose to partner. We believe in the respectful treatment of workers, fair pay, and safe working conditions.
'Organic' products are manufactured in accordance with agricultural guidelines that prohibit the use of synthetic pesticides, fertilizers, and genetically modified plants, and require proper soil rotation. These guidelines make crops more environmentally sustainable than conventional alternatives and less toxic for the wearer.
We are devoted to slow fashion practices that encourage the production of quality products intended for longevity, not disposability. Slow fashion encompasses quality over quantity, the use local skill sets, and humane labor conditions.
