Part of what makes us who we are here at Ixchel Triangle is our belief that ethically run businesses change the world. Not only do we find the best products on the market (I swear by this.. ethical businesses have THE BEST goods and services.. the time and love and care and attention to detail is so apparent in their work) The community of entrepreneurs who run ethical businesses is one that we are proud to be a part of, which is why we started this blog series: Ethical Brands We Love!
This week we’re highlighting our friends at LONGWAY. Not only were they an absolute joy to work with for our Instagram swap last week (were you there with us?! It was the best) -- but their dedication to slow fashion and sustainability shines so bright. And, did I mention the clothes they make are the highest quality and just gorgeous?
A Word From LONGWAY
We ethically and sustainably produce clothing in California and Peru.
Why Longway you may ask? Because it's our favorite way to go. It’s the road with more curves, but also more thought - where a difference can be made and adventures found. It’s about celebrating the slow and cheering on the process and people behind each item we design and produce or even with the products we carry in our flagship. In garments, yes, but also in art, travel and life.
We're here online but you can also come visit us in San Anselmo, CA at our Flagship space where we feature our brand, a coffee shop, and other artists and designers who share our same beliefs of slow, ethical, and sustainable production.
Products We Love From LONGWAY
Short answer: all the things
But, if I had to showcase a few items…
Their bralettes are the staple piece your wardrobe is missing. Wear them under overalls or jumpers, or as a crop top with high waisted shorts.. these bralettes are everything.
They are the perfect soft ribbed cotton/spandex blend that is just thick enough so you can feel comfortable wearing it alone as a top. The stretch is divine and the quality is amazing just like all LONGWAY clothing.
Short Sleeve Savannah Dress
Made with 100% organic cotton, the short sleeve savannah dress is your perfect go-to-any-occasion-dress. It’s perfect for dressing up with some fun earrings and a clutch style bag (maybe our Tik bag carried clutch style!) -- or dressing down to get all the things done.
A perfect flowy dress for the warmer months or even to layer all year round.
If you haven’t made your first purchase from LONGWAY yet, I’m going full Nike and telling you.. Just Do It! They are amazing and we’re so lucky to have them in our community of ethical businesses. Thanks for being awesome, LONGWAY!
