Sustainability in Action!
Here at Frangipani, we are very conscious about the brands we offer and always make sure that their values align with ours. One thing we are passionate about is sustainability. We know the impact we have on this planet and truly do our best to make it a positive one. We make sure to do our part by providing sustainable product lines for our customers so that you, too, can feel empowered to make a difference through your shopping and consumption habits. We’re proud to say that over 50% of our store’s products are friendly towards our planet’s wellbeing; made with reused or sustainably sourced materials. Here are some of our favorite sustainable product lines that you can browse online or at our funky, fresh, and fun location in Wynwood:
One of our most popular brands, Mavrans, prides itself on its sustainability… as it should! Mavrans truly goes so far to make its products entirely eco friendly while also super fun, colorful, and inclusive. Mavrans' clothing is made from recycled plastic bottles that would normally take 450 years to decompose (can you imagine?!) and coconut husks which make the garments soft and breathable. Only the exact amount necessary of fabric is printed in order to create minimal waste during their manufacturing process. Most importantly, Mavrans fabrics are made without any water! We’ve carried Mavrans in our store for years and their creative solutions to common waste problems in the fashion industry never fail to amaze me. And it’s no wonder their products are a fan favorite. Drop by the store and take a look for yourself to see how truly awesome and unique all of their designs are.
The Jacksons is a London based handbag brand that also cares deeply about our planet and the people who inhabit it. They focus on sustainability through their materials, production, brand development, practices, and on top of that, they are also fair trade! Their code of ethics truly inspirational! They state on their website, “these codes cannot be an add-on, we believe strongly that it needs to be woven into our lives so that it becomes second nature to us all.” We are so proud to carry their products at Frangipani! Not to mention the fact that their bags are so fun and practical. We personally love using them on an everyday basis, but they also make great beach bags and the larger size can easily be used as a weekend bag for all your getaway essentials.
Salt + Umber
Salt + Umber is one of the few shoe brands that we carry at Frangipani. On top of being completely spectacular and the perfect complement to any outfit, they also have a very strong focus on sustainability, quality, and accessibility. They use small batch, sustainable manufacturing processes and recycled materials all the way down to their packaging and tags. They recently were able to even cut back 50% of their carbon footprint! How amazing is that? The list of sustainable practices they use throughout their business goes on and on, and includes things like minimalistic packaging, made-to-order production, raw materials, and computer generated samples. These shoes are one of our more limited products so don’t hesitate to stop by and try on a few pairs! I trust you’re going to fall in love.
We hope you care about taking care of our planet, our only home, as much as we do! Our store and our products are here to complement your life as best as they can, not only by making you feel more fun and beautiful, but also by assuring you that it’s possible to make a difference in the world through the small actions we take everyday. How cool is it that we can have fun and do things that we love, like go shopping (duh!), while also creating a positive impact at the same time. We’re here in Wynwood everyday, excited to help you out in picking the right items to take home and answering any questions you might have. See you soon!
