I am excited to announce the Kickstarter launch for COVEY, an online boutique featuring independent designers who focus on ethical, sustainable fashion. I'm proud to be part of the first wave of designers who have joined the project, and I will be offering both the Dip-Dyed Silk Pillow in Blue/Bronze gradation as well as the Crimson Silk Pocket Square to backers. (A little something for the gentleman in your life as well as for your home!) Please support the campaign and share with your friends!
A Covey is a small flock of birds. Our name signifies that we are building a curated clothing collection that connects carefully chosen designers with a community of customers who care about the design, craftsmanship, and sustainability of the products they support.
Our boutique collection features clothing and accessories for men and women with minimal, classic designs while maintaining contemporary, fresh aesthetics. Covey ensures each design is ethically manufactured here in the USA or by people abroad under proven-safe labor conditions. Through this policy, we support stable jobs for fashion designers and their staff locally and worldwide. We also focus on natural materials, including organic and recycled fibers and dyes free of artificial ingredients.
Covey's Foundation: Slow Fashion
The slow fashion movement believes that the power of the consumer can create change. Like fast food, “fast fashion” compromises quality for the sake of profit, putting poorly crafted goods into as many consumers’ hands as possible. Styles are designed to go from the catwalk to the storefront so quickly that trend cycles are shortened, creating profits based on the disposability of the product. The image of convenience and affordability quickly dissolves once the true costs of each garment have been realized.
Covey, like slow fashion, supports the people making the clothing, respects the environment, and creates a wholesome consumer cycle.
“It's extremely difficult to create a well-made product while running your own business and to also create the right platform to successfully market that product. I'm excited to focus on the making of my clothing and textile products and letting Covey reach a broader audience for my designs. I think this will be a win-win for both designers and customers looking for a new and fresh online fashion destination." – Sarah Nelsen
