The natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest is a huge source of inspiration for what we do at Bridge & Burn. The way you feel standing next to soaring trees, the sound of the rain, the kaleidoscope of colors we see when we walk out our front door - our creativity comes from being outside in nature, which luckily for us, is right in our backyard.
As we look towards the future of our company, we have found ourselves at a place where we must also consider the future of our planet and the people that live on it. Whether it’s the choices we make in regards to the fabrics we use or the way we manufacture our clothes, we’re committed to doing better. It’s something we’ve always been passionate about and it’s time that we start making those values a core focus of our brand. We know that for our industry to move forward as a whole, there isn’t any time to waste for us all to start looking at how we can improve. We know we’ve got a long road ahead of us, but we need to start somewhere.
In that spirit of progress, we are proud to be offering our Sustainable Series collection. This is our first step towards living that commitment of limiting our impact on the environment. And while we’re excited about this line, we know this is just the beginning. We’re excited to take you on this journey with us.
Finding the right partners who practice small-scale manufacturing has allowed us to create clothing in smaller runs, which directly reduces unnecessary waste. And as we grow our operations, we continue to search for and discover new partners who can help us reach our goal of more ecologically-friendly manufacturing practices. This season’s Sustainable Series collection was made in collaboration with a new factory partner who is committed to using renewable fabrics and sustainable practices. This collaboration allowed us to have a role in the creation and development of our own line of sustainable fabrics that are featured throughout the collection.
In addition to decreasing our environmental impact, our hope is that by producing clothing that is made from more durable natural materials you’ll be able to love them more and wear them longer. We want our pieces to be the clothing that you keep in your closet for a very long time - we’re in this relationship with you for the long run.
Our collection uses thoughtfully selected fabrics like organic cotton, hemp, and recycled polyester that decrease the strain on our planet by consuming fewer natural resources to produce.
