Ethical sustainable clothing and accessories. I started Janee Michal to express two things that are very important to me. Sustainability and individualism. Being unique has always been a factor in my wardrobe. Nothing feels better to me than wearing a unique piece that no one will have. 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 eco-friendly and zero waste sources.
Ethical and Sustainable Responsibility
What does ethical and sustainable mean to Janee Michal? Being ethically responsible as a company, we are committed to ensuring that we create our 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 our products. All of our products are handmade in small batches to reduce waste. It also commits us to only working with suppliers who commit to our values as well. This means we will source none of our fabrics or supplies from companies that support child labor, unfair wages, and unfair working conditions.
Sustainability is also very important. This means we are committed to working with suppliers who stand by reducing waste and eliminating unnecessary chemicals and toxins in their products. 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. The love of sewing is something I first experienced from my mother. I watched her make numerous 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 (not so well), listening to 90s music, and cooking.
I started out making unique pieces for my barbie doll….she had to have exclusive outfits that no one else had. Faux fur coats, short miniskirts, and professional work dresses were the basics. I remember the first item that I sewed for myself… a plaid short with cuffs, side pockets, a front zipper, and belt loops. When questioning my mom about the “not so easy” first pattern, she said, well you did it didn’t you. Indeed, I did, and have been sewing ever since. I hope to inspire you with simple to not so simple pieces, easy and not so easy patterns, and tons of beautiful fabrics. Stop by for pattern reviews, fabric hauls, and sustainable products.
