A thoughtfully curated shop for the conscious consumer
Fast fashion is one of the highest polluting industries in the world. On top of the environmental impact that production alone causes, over 26 billion pounds of clothing and textiles are thrown away and end up in landfills each year.
At Calico and Twine, we are dedicated to no new clothes. Our carefully curated selection of clothing is secondhand and vintage only. This keeps these clothes out of landfills and gives them another chance at life. We encourage conscious consumerism rather convenient consumerism. We encourage quality over quantity. By mindfully shopping slow, simply, and sustainably, we lighten our footprint on this planet and ultimately find our own style rather than keeping up with the ever-changing trends.
We hope to inspire and help create thoughtful wardrobes. Wardrobes full of unique pieces that pair with almost anything. Pieces you find yourself returning to time and time again because of their simple beauty and natural materials. And most of all, we hope to help you bring a little simplicity back into your life.
