Faircloth Supply Doesn’t Choose Between Sustainability or Supporting a Cause - They Do Both
Phoebe Dahl, Founder
Echo Park, CA
I’m Phoebe Dahl, founder of sustainable womenswear line Faircloth Supply, and I currently live in the Echo Park neighborhood of Los Angeles. I founded Faircloth Supply in 2013 and take any opportunity to travel and explore as part of my creative work, drawing inspiration from colors and traditions of other cultures.
Faircloth Supply is a sustainably produced womenswear label designed for the curious travelers of the world. We offer cool, comfortable pieces inspired by heritage textiles and utilitarian workwear. With a focus on organic fibers and sustainability, Faircloth Supply is without season, transcending the boundaries of a traditional brand.
After growing up in LA, I attended FIDM in San Francisco and then London College of Fashion, so I always knew I wanted to start a clothing company. Upon graduating, I relocated to Amsterdam where I worked with a designer who took me on back to back production trips to India and Japan. Taking in the culture from their handcrafted designs to their colorful traditions, it was the inspiration I had been searching for. I returned from that trip I never looked back, immediately relocating back to Los Angeles where it was more sustainable to start a clothing brand, officially launching in 2013.
I think what really sets us apart is that Faircloth Supply doesn’t choose between being sustainable or supporting a cause, we do both. We utilize deadstock fabrics in natural fibers, employ local producers and do it all while giving back and empowering women. At Faircloth Supply, we are a team of women, inspired by women, dedicated to a common goal: to end the global gender gap through empowerment and education.
It’s hard to choose a favorite, but I’m really loving our Cross Skirt right now. It’s the perfect transitional piece that feels comfortable and cozy when you’re not quite ready to give up those summer silhouettes.
