SUBSURFACE is a womenswear brand established in Brooklyn, NY in 2018. Inspired by the psychology and personification of fashion, SUBSURFACE provides seasonless, specialty vintage and small-batch contemporary pieces ethically crafted in California. We focus on how clothing makes you feel, beneath the surface.
In a generation where overconsumption and throwaway culture is at its height, it is more important than ever to be sustainably conscious and aware of our industry’s impact on the Earth—as a brand, and as consumers. Our clothing is vintage, up-cycled, or ethically crafted in small batches in California. Our fabric vendors adhere to Fair Trades practices, the Better Cotton Initiative, and GOTS certifications. Our packaging is reusable, recyclable, and biodegradable. We’ve worked hard to institute a “send back” program for our clothes at the end of their life cycle. Designing with Circularity in mind is important. Sustainability is a process and a conversation. Let’s educate each other.
