Sustainability on a Budget: People of Leisure

Posted on
Into the Night Bell Sleeve Dress: $60

I started a series on how to be sustainable while keeping to a budget. You can read my first blogpost on Kowtow over here. I know firsthand how important it is for folks to keep to their budget. Today, I wanted to highlight People of Leisure, a Los Angeles based brand. Their clothing is fun, relaxed and designed with creative folks in mind. They have the type of clothing that you would wear to a ceramics class or to a day at the beach or dance around the house in. 

Kaleidoscope Bell Sleeve Kimono: $70

I learned about People of Leisure through the always sustainably chic Jen Griswold. Their philosophy aligns with mine: “…to live with complete freedom – one must be conscious of their actions.” All of their clothing is made in LA using deadstock fabric, and eco-friendly techniques. They also ensure that their operations are within fair trade guidelines. 

Today, I’m showcasing favorites that are at the sweet spot of being under $100. I love how People of Leisure isn’t limited in their amount of items at or under that price point. I can definitely find more than just a t-shirt. I hope you enjoy my picks! Let me know if you find anything else.
