My name is Haley and I am the owner of Atonement Design. I've always loved fashion, but I found myself having a hard time finding clothing that was manufactured in a respected way. The more research I did, I found that people were suffering in harmful working conditions across the globe because of our 'fast fashion' culture and the production practices of many major brands that we shop with every day.
When I thought about my purchases over the last year, I realized I had no idea where many of them actually came from. I had no information on the maker of the dress I purchased from Urban Outfitters last summer or the dinnerware I bought at Macy's.
After my search for ways to shop ethically, I found many brands out there striving to change today's fashion industry. I found social enterprises that told a story and provided beneficial working conditions for their laborers; some even employed survivors after rescuing them from harmful situations.
Shopping ethically isn't always convenient, but I believe it should be easy to purchase fashionable products that were made in respectable conditions.I wanted a convenient way to purchase ethically. I wanted a place I could go to purchase an array of products by all different designers that each fought for their own cause.
I couldn't find it, so I made it.
Welcome to Atonement Design.
I hope you enjoy!
