How to Ethically Be the Envy of All

How to Ethically Be the Envy of All

What if you could own denim that would be the envy of all your friends? First, let’s take a step back.

Since M&J’s inception, we’ve stood apart from most of the fashion and home goods industries because of our innovative supply chain methods. Montie & Joie’s origin was not like any traditional fashion brand where a collection is inspired, drafted, and planned out before going out to look for fabric suppliers and manufacturers to work with. Instead, M&J was reverse engineered when Sydney, the daughter-founder, discovered a team of talented artisans that deserved a spotlight in the online marketplace. The hand embroidered patches that these artisans were able to create were not producing fair wages for them, until Sydney chose to change this narrative to create fashion pieces that can make you the envy of all.

By definition, a supply chain is the sequence of processes involved in the production and distribution of a commodity. M&J’s supply chain is different from the traditional fashion industry in the following ways:

 

Sustainability Above All

One of our top priorities is avoiding perfectly good second-hand and old collection denim ending up in landfills. We believe that our planet is worth taking care of, and our consumption choices should reflect that. By giving denim pieces a second life-cycle, we contribute to a more sustainable world.

 

Fair Wages 

At M&J we have placed fair wages above all else. Improving life conditions for our artisans is one of the main reasons M&J was created. It’s very common for fashion collection designers to search for the best-priced material. This is not necessarily a bad thing, although sadly, sweatshops are often involved in the process to create the cheap material. Not so with M&J, we place our artisans’ work conditions and life improvement as a top priority.

Unique Pieces

Unless you’re wearing Oscar de la Renta or Alexander McQueen, chances are, your clothes were mass produced. This means that several other people own the exact same clothing pieces that you do. What if you could own denim that would be the envy of all your friends? Better yet, what if you owned the only denim piece in the world like it? At M&J we make you stand out with unique pieces. There’s only one of each, which makes each collection piece a masterpiece with no equal!
What are you waiting for? Dress the one-and-only you with our ethical, one-and-only, unique pieces to be the envy of all creative wardrobe fashionistas. What’s even more rad is that by purchasing at M&J you can be unique while contributing to fair wages and sustainable efforts that create beautiful impact. Shop now!
