"Beautiful drape and cut. This top is graceful and elegant in any fabric. My favorite is the Linen fabric. I love that I can layer this over a tank, or little bandeau top."
"Timeless and elegant dress. I first bought it in mauve and I loved it so much that I had to get the sunshine yellow for my beach vacation! So many ways to wear to this dress - either with a belt or knotted at the bottom."– May
We are inspired to bring beautiful fashion to you while being considerate of our connection and foot print on the earth and trust that you will be inspired by this too.
We are conscious of what we put in our bodies by way of food and feel the same way about what we put on our bodies and how we choose to represent ourselves in the world with considered, stylish garments that are made in small numbers so they remain special to you.
We love using fibers that keep harmful chemicals off our planet and our bodies. We love working with people we know, we believe in humanitarian working conditions and we love creating beautiful items to keep you current, stylish and expressing your most wonderful self.
"I was originally inspired to bring sustainability practices and fabrics into my designing and business in 2006 when I started Thieves, because my lifestyle was always working towards that, so it only made sense to include this way of working into my business." Sonja
