Made in NYC Eco Fashion Label Tabii Just is Zero Waste, Looks Like a Million Bucks
Posted Jul 11 2013 5:04pm
Made in NYC Eco fashion label Tabii Just , brings it, mixing an urban (Brooklyn) edge with a breezy, colorful Trinidadian vibe to create sustainable clothing that’s all about sharp, effortless style.
Choosing quality over quantity, the label produces a limited number of designs, but each perfectly embodies designer Tabitha St. Bernard’s (pictured below) vibrant prints. Tabii Just is designed and made entirely in NYC, just a subway ride away from their design studio, ensuring close contact with their manufactures.
Each piece is cut with Zero Fabric Waste ideology, so as to reduce their excess by 15%. For example, their Zero Waste Dresses incorporate interesting back seaming. Rather than waste the material, St. Bernard has allowed ethics to lead her designs.
We love the high-waisted skirts because they cover the belly button—this season’s rule for matching a bottom with your summer crop-top.
Plus, Tabii Just uses fabric scraps to make shopping bags, makeup bags and travel pouches. Designer St. Bernard also works with a fabric vendor in New York City who ensures that the fabric is made in mills that adhere to US labor guidelines.
