Fashion can be comfortable but can it be clean? The fashion industry is the second highest polluter, right behind oil so when I decided to start a garment line in 1999, I was conflicted. I was raised by a mom well ahead of her time who hated to throw trash into landfills and started recycling in the early 70s. She saw climate change coming way before any scientist and her passion for protecting our planet impacted me greatly. That's why I began my journey to turn an ugly industry into a more beautiful one - inside and out.
At MAJAMAS, we are committed to making beautiful clothing that doesn't destroy our beautiful planet. Our garments are not only sewn in the United States, but even the elastics and fabrics that go into them are made here too. We do our very best to use Organic Cottons and environmentally friendly fabrics like Modal and Tencel in every piece of clothing we make. By sewing our clothing here, we can be sure nothing is sprayed with chemicals, waste water isn't dumped into our oceans and the people sewing them are paid fair wages.
Sure, you could buy a less expensive bra or a cheaper pair of pajamas but at MAJAMAS we choose to operate the responsible way, not the cheapest way. MAJAMAS recognizes that our planet's wellbeing goes well beyond the economical, and for that reason our operations are as environmentally friendly as possible.
We hope you'll support our mission and we're confident once you wear our clothes, you'll realize it really is possible to create ethical fashion that is whimsical, super comfortable and less harmful to our planet.
