Slow & sustainable

Examining our impact on the environment—and on society—is more important than ever.
A controlled supply chain allows us to analyze and adjust products by studying their life cycle and reducing negative effects. Explore the components of our sustainability commitment:
  
    
ANTI-FAST FASHION
Products are produced less often and in smaller quantities, challenging the season-based fashion calendar. Quality and longevity are always the priorities.
 
SUSTAINABLE FABRICS
Wherever possible, we use organic and Okie-Tex certified cotton, which doesn't require wildlife-harming pesticides. These materials promote healthier working conditions for farmers. 
 
RAW MATERIALS
Overstock leather from a local tannery is used to reduce our carbon footprint and create less waste. This allows us to avoid using excess production chemicals.
 
LOCAL PRODUCTION
We keep things close to home. Manufacturing products locally means reinvesting in the community, as well as minimizing the carbon footprint of our supply chain.
 
INTERNATIONAL PRODUCTION
Our trusted production partners in Eastern China run a small, family-owned factory that offers healthy conditions and living wages. We inspect the facility personally.
 
RECYCLED PACKAGING
We strive to use eco-minded packing and shipping materials, such as recycled paper boxes, padding, and more. Our fabric storage pouches are reusable.
 
REPAIR IT & WEAR IT
Extending a product's life span decreases its carbon footprint. We offer repairs so you can keep wearing the accessories you love and reduce the frequency of buying new items. 
 
BLACK LIVES MATTER
As a modern brand founded by a Black woman of Haitian descent, BAIN donates 15% of sales to local organizations that support the Black community.
