How trash becomes treasure: The origins of tonlé's zero waste garments

To tell the story of where tonlé's remnant fabrics come from, we wanted to do an editorial photoshoot showcasing the beauty of tonlé products against the backdrop of the fashion industry waste from which they originate.

The Sunset

The Sunset

Last month we had the pleasure of collaborating on a shoot with the gorgeous and ever-so-kind Laura Madden, before she whisked off to Arizona. We chose to shoot in San Francisco's Sunset neighborhood, where sea meets city and and cheery colors abound. We see tonlé's signature style as a quirky union of beach clothes that you can wear to the office, and the Sunset as the neighborhood that boldly embodies that style.

Community is a really important to us at tonlé. The world is a constantly shrinking place, and no matter how far apart in the world we feel, we are all interconnected and interdependent. That's why we love working with likeminded brands who we see as partners in our effort to change the fashion industry from the inside out, just like you, our customers and supporters.
