“No matter how a piece of clothing looks, it cannot be considered beautiful if, in producing it, the environment is destroyed or people are exploited. When deciding on what to wear, we all have an obligation to consider how it’s made and the impact that process has on the planet and its people.”
The rayon crepe (eco dry cleaning recommended) we used is rescued deadstock fabric that was left over from a larger fashion house. By using deadstock fabric we save hundreds of thousands of gallons of water annually and keep the planet clean.

Outside of work, Maria loves to cook for herself, her husband, and their three kids. She’s worked at Anteliza for seven years, from the beginning, and she can’t imagine going anywhere else. She really likes working on dresses in particular, and feels like she’s always getting to work on beautiful pieces, learning new techniques as she goes.
