Introducing tonlé Featured Retailer: Spoils of Wear
We're fortunate to partner with many like-minded stockists who share our passion for creating fashion justice through the products they choose to carry in their retail spaces. This week as we continue our series highlighting tonlé featured retailers who have gone above and beyond in their commitment to our team this spring, we're featuring Spoils of Wear, a St. Paul, MN boutique offering a beautiful mix of ethical, sustainable, and locally handcrafted goods.
We hope you enjoy getting to know more about Jill and the team as much as we have!

Digging In- About the Business
Can you share a little about what makes your shop unique?
What is your personal or business mission?
Why is buying ethical or environmentally responsible products important to you?
It just makes sense. There are so many small, conscious brands out there - so the question to me isn't "why do it this way?", it's "why NOT do it this way?". I believe in our collective responsibility to our fellow humans and Mother Nature. I also believe in our collective purchasing power. Better options simply need to be supported and accessible to more people. My store is one small vehicle to do that.

"I really see tonlé as wearable art, more so than many other brands in the sustainable/ethical fashion space. It's obvious the care that goes into the creation of every piece - right down to the tags that feature the name of the person who made the item." -Jill, Owner of Spoils of Wear
