THE VERSALETTE: 


One piece, 30 ways to wear.

The Versalette is made with deadstock fabric, originally knitted in New York and sent to Seamly.co after being dyed the wrong color. 

[ We love finding unwanted fabric and creating beauty. ]

Drawstrings were made in San Francisco, CA, and care labels were printed in Atlanta, GA.

The final piece was cut and sewn in Portland, OR.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS

Your Versalette will last longer (and you'll save energy) by machine washing on cold or warm, and laying flat or hanging to dry. (But you can tumble dry your Versalette if needed with no problems.)



THE STORY

In 2010, we (Kristin and Shannon) teamed up to create {r}evolution apparel and the Versalette. We Kickstarted our idea, raised over $64,000, got some rad press, and toured around the USA learning about sustainable fashion. 

In late 2012, we went to visit the incredible team at Portland Garment Factory and redesigned our sustainable-fashion-love-child. We called it "the Versalette 2.0" -- a sleek, sexy take on our original design. 

Later that year, we parted ways to focus on our individual impact in the sustainable fashion industry. We closed down shop over at {r}evolution apparel, but wanted the Versalette to live on in some capacity. 

So as we pursue our own passions (Shannon is a sustainability strategist for designers and apparel companies, and Kristin is behind-the-scenes at Seamly.co), it seemed fitting to team up and bring the V2.0 to market. 

So, to you. From us. With many thanks to the people who supported "our story."
