TO BE HOPEFUL

“TO BE HOPEFUL in bad times is not just foolishly romantic. It is based on the fact that human history is a history not only of cruelty, but also of compassion, sacrifice, courage, kindness.


What we choose to emphasize in this complex history will determine our lives. If we see only the worst, it destroys our capacity to do something. If we remember those times and places—and there are so many—where people have behaved magnificently, this gives us the energy to act, and at least the possibility of sending this spinning top of a world in a different direction.


And if we do act, in however small a way, we don’t have to wait for some grand utopian future. The future is an infinite succession of presents, and to live now as we think human beings should live, in defiance of all that is bad around us, is itself a marvelous victory.”

MBS Zero Waste, Part 1

MBS Zero Waste, Part 1

Did you know that all of our accessories are completely Zero Waste? But, what does Zero Waste mean? Zero Waste, as defined by the Zero Waste International Alliance (ZWIA) means: "𝑻𝒉𝒆 𝒄𝒐𝒏𝒔𝒆𝒓𝒗𝒂𝒕𝒊𝒐𝒏 𝒐𝒇 𝒂𝒍𝒍 𝒓𝒆𝒔𝒐𝒖𝒓𝒄𝒆𝒔 𝒃𝒚 𝒎𝒆𝒂𝒏𝒔 𝒐𝒇 𝒓𝒆𝒔𝒑𝒐𝒏𝒔𝒊𝒃𝒍𝒆 𝒑𝒓𝒐𝒅𝒖𝒄𝒕𝒊𝒐𝒏, 𝒄𝒐𝒏𝒔𝒖𝒎𝒑𝒕𝒊𝒐𝒏, 𝒓𝒆𝒖𝒔𝒆, 𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝒓𝒆𝒄𝒐𝒗𝒆𝒓𝒚 𝒐𝒇 𝒑𝒓𝒐𝒅𝒖𝒄𝒕𝒔, 𝒑𝒂𝒄𝒌𝒂𝒈𝒊𝒏𝒈, 𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝒎𝒂𝒕𝒆𝒓𝒊𝒂𝒍𝒔 𝒘𝒊𝒕𝒉𝒐𝒖𝒕 𝒃𝒖𝒓𝒏𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝒘𝒊𝒕𝒉 𝒏𝒐 𝒅𝒊𝒔𝒄𝒉𝒂𝒓𝒈𝒆𝒔 𝒕𝒐 𝒍𝒂𝒏𝒅, 𝒘𝒂𝒕𝒆𝒓, 𝒐𝒓 𝒂𝒊𝒓 𝒕𝒉𝒂𝒕 𝒕𝒉𝒓𝒆𝒂𝒕𝒆𝒏 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒆𝒏𝒗𝒊𝒓𝒐𝒏𝒎𝒆𝒏𝒕 𝒐𝒓 𝒉𝒖𝒎𝒂𝒏 𝒉𝒆𝒂𝒍𝒕𝒉."In the case of our products, it means the recovery and up-cycling of every inch of the fabric we use in our apparel collection. It can also mean the re-use of our dye vats, conserving water and recovering dye-stuff by designing around the color outcomes achieved with secondary and tertiary dips in the same formula (where color, shade and tone will be different). Some of those vats are created through recovery of materials that are the natural byproducts of other industries (saw dust, food waste and more) where we pay to collect these goods, diverting them from the landfill, and then formulate dyes with them to tint our collection. In this way, some of our products are Zero Waste three times over - having been made with recovered fabric, re-used natural dye vats, and recovered natural dye materials.

Introducing MBS Plant Dyed, Organic Facial Coverings

Introducing MBS Plant Dyed, Organic Facial Coverings

An item that we seldom knew we would need yet suddenly, and urgently, do.

Now that we are past the phase of novel discomfort and have had time to live and breath with these new bedfellows, preferences are emerging, as well as practical concerns.

We need something that can be washed, will last for multiple wears, is as comfortable (as is possible) to wear, is made from materials we feel good in, and (dare to dream) speaks to our aesthetic sensibilities. Can we also have something ethically made?

The Wonder

The Wonder

Becoming an advocate for natural dyes in the fashion industry became a non-negotiable, core tenant for my brand (along with a commitment to being a zero waste studio, using biodegradable fabrics and basing our all woman team in the US).

Without committing to these principles, there would be no reason to add more products to an oversaturated marketplace.

We want to lead by example and, in doing so, refashion the industry.
