Low Carbon Footprint
Suzanne Rae practices local production to reduce the harmful carbon emissions that often accrue from transportation-related pollution. Additionally, choosing production facilities in their hometown allows them to develop relationships with their partners to ensure garments are being produced in safe facilities with fair wages and working conditions.
Suzanne Rae looks to embody feminist ideals through their empowering collaborations with local NYC women groups like WIN and Girls Inc, which provide mentorship, job training, safe housing, and counseling for women in need.
Feminist theory also recognizes the necessity for valuing and enhancing global interconnection, which is why Suzanne Rae also collaborates with national environmental groups including the Endangered Species Coalition. This coalition works diligently to preserve and protect the endangered wild spaces and animals in North America.
Suzanne Rae is part of the Slow Fashion Movement, which disregards seasonal production in favor of timeless collections. Each Suzanne Rae piece is made with the utmost consideration for longevity, aiming to empower and elevate your sense of self for many years to come.
This brand utilizes a mixture of natural and synthetic fabrics, with special attention on innovative fibers like recycled polyester and recycled nylon. Most articles of clothing are worn 7-10 times before 85% of them end up in landfills, which means utilizing recycled fibers significantly reduces textile waste and elongates the lifespan of textiles across the world.
