Janee Michal is a sustainable slow fashion brand with a focus on ethically made clothing and accessories. Our mission is to bring awareness to social and environmental causes. I started Janee Michal to express two things that are very important to me: Sustainability and individualism. While it is very important to express yourself as an individual, we should also be responsible. Responsible for not only ourselves and our family, but the planet as well.
In recent years, I have learned so much more about zero waste and sustainability. It is so important that we all take a stand in protecting the environment, not just for today, but for future generations. Shop Janee Michal for sustainable products made from ethical and eco-friendly sources. Every item purchased will give back by planting a tree. Together we can fight to save our planet.

Ethical and Sustainable Responsibility
What does ethical and sustainable mean to Janee Michal? Being ethically responsible as a company, I am committed to ensuring that I create all products without harming people, animals, and the environment. When designing products, no animals are harmed. Animal skin and furs, wool, and down feathers are not a part of any products.
I am committed to only working with suppliers who commit to our values as well. This means I source fabrics and supplies from companies that do not support child labor, unfair wages, and unfair working conditions. In addition, I am committed to only working with suppliers who stand by reducing waste and eliminating unnecessary chemicals and toxins in their products.
Sustainability is just as important. I am a big believer in slow fashion. Each product is handmade and created by me. I create most items once ordered, while I create a few in small batches. This helps to reduce inventory and overstock of fabric and products that might lead to unnecessary waste.
Left over fabric from major pieces is used to create secondary items. For example, remaining fabric from a reusable shopping tote is used to make planter baskets; remaining fabric from mask are used to make key chain wristlets.
All of my packaging is 100% recycled and some are also reusable. In addition, each item purchased gives back to the planet. I have committed to have one tree planted for each item sold. Together we can fight to save our planet. It is not enough to talk the talk, but we must all walk the walk!
A little about me. Hi, my name is Drea’. Nothing feels better than being able to express myself creatively. I am a wife, a mother of three, a seamstress, and an entrepreneur. I have been sewing for over 30 years now. The love of sewing is something I first experienced from my mother. I watched her make many garments for herself and for me and my sisters. At twelve, she taught me how to sew, and I was hooked. I love spending time in fabric stores, reading, working out, singing, listening to 90’s music, and cooking.
