- Founded by designer Tara St James, New York-based label Study NY cuts and sews its collections in New York City’s garment district, visiting their manufacturers once a week.
- Study NY also work with artisans in Peru, Mexico City and Afghanistan—where the brand reassures that workers are paid fairly and work in safe conditions.
- Garments are made using hemp, organic cotton, ethically sourced alpaca, and other recycled and repurposed materials, ensuring all are sourced responsibly and are dyed using low impact dyes. You can read more about Study NY’s fabric choices on their website.
- Study NY use ‘zero waste cutting’ in some of their designs, so the different elements of a garment’s pattern fit together like a jigsaw puzzle and significantly minimise fabric waste. You can read more about how Study NY are making fashion without waste on their website.
