Saluting a Sustainable Textile Pioneer

Happy International Women's Day!

The DeLaunay Heroine stands strong in the Hemp/Organic Cotton/Wool "Commander" Coat & Soy-Jersey "Goddess" Dress

Today we salute Dawn Pickering of Pickering International.  For nearly thirty years, this eco-textile pioneer has been offering the sustainably-milled, G.O.T.S. certified fabrics that are the core of our collections---like the luxurious hemp/organic cotton/wool used to create the Commander Coat and the soy-based jersey Goddess Dress.

And because Dawn believes in empowering women entrepreneurs, she makes it possible for fledgling companies like DeLaunay to purchase these high-quality fabrics in small quantities.  With a modest development budget, we simply couldn't afford the high-yardage minimums that many mills require for purchase. We're grateful for her support.  Thank you, Dawn!
We couldn't end this salute without a heartfelt note of thanks to all our incredible clients and supporters, too.  Because of you, we're still in business and working towards a sustainable fashion future.
