Meet our favorite eco-friendly brands | #2 MATE the label

June 01, 2020 2 min read

We've been inspired by MATE for many years and now, and we couldn't keep going without introducing them to you! Their classic, timeless, cosy clothes are definitely an essential in our wardrobe, especially while we're staying home right now. Made sustainably in Los Angeles with non-toxic, natural and certified organic materials, there's nothing not to love about this brand.We talked with founder Kayti to learn more about them, the inspiration, values and message behind MATE. 

 

Can you talk us through your journey to sustainability as a brand? When did you start & how did this evolve for you guys? 

The brand began by selling vintage t-shirts years ago and has slowly evolved into a sustainable brand. We launched our Dress Clean initiative in early 2018; we committed to strictly using natural fibers including GOTS certified organic cotton, as well as low impact dyes. We are on a mission to clean up the fashion industry from toxic materials and dyes that are harmful to people and the planet. Furthermore, we have a super localized supply chain and produce all of our product within a 10 mile radius from our HQ in Los Angeles. 

What’s your best tip to live a more eco-friendly lifestyle? 

Check your care labels, try to purchase natural fiber clothing over synthetic as much as you can.

Where to stay in Bali and Why

We get it. Planning your Vacation to Bali can be overwhelming. I remember the very first time trying to work out where on earth to stay on the island and why everyone was telling me the same areas to stay in, knowing that there must be more to Bali than ‘Legian, Kuta, Seminyak & Ubud’! And that there is my friends… The island of Bali might be small (Around 150km x 120km in size) but it sure is diverse! You can holiday any which way you like it from Jungle trips to all night parties, cliff top Michelin Star dining to $1 street food delights. Click away to see our thoughts on where you should explore, rest your head & enjoy the magic island of Bali.
