Slow Fashion

When Lynn, Mary Ruth, and I started South Street Linen, we shared some core business ideals: we wanted to design the clothes ourselves, we wanted to use a pure and noble fabric (linen), and we wanted to hire cutters and stitchers locally in the greater Portland, Maine, area.

It turns out there are lots of people in the industry who shared our ideals. There are enough of us now that people are calling it the slow fashion movement: keep your production local and high quality; use sustainable raw materials; know your workers personally.

We can't imagine doing business any other way.
