Our Mission

Sustainable dresses, jumpsuits & accessories

Our clothes must serve who we are today

LEYT is pronounced light, and in the Middle English it meant spark.

Fashion can ask too much of us: of our self-image and self-worth, and of our planet’s resources. I want instead to make clothes that work for who we are today. Women’s lives take them far and wide and the clothes must follow, from the home to the office to a getaway and back. Our clothes need to keep up with us, to be as fluid and as ambitious as we are.

LEYT is built to move—to favor real bodies and real lives, to be glamorous without being restrictive. I want you to wear LEYT because it feels natural on your skin, because it is comfortable and freeing, and because it makes you feel more like yourself.

Responsibly made clothing using only natural fabrics

I want to make clothes responsibly—or not at all. What we wear should be a choice with a conscience. We cannot ignore the stakes in an apparel industry that touches so many communities and requires as many resources as it does.

As a conscious fashion brand, LEYT uses only natural fibers, namely silk, cotton, and rayon. We choose eco-friendly fabric made in small batches to generate less impact on the environment and reduce excess waste. We work directly with skilled weavers in Bangladesh who have been performing their hand-looming craft for multiple generations. The unique patterns we design in partnership with them are handwoven and hang dried, requiring minimal electricity and water use, before being shipped to sewers here in the United States.

Most fabric is power-loomed today—but there are still artisans who make things the old way. By continuing to participate in this tradition we get to create high-quality and unique fabrics for our sustainable jumpsuits and dresses. We also help to sustain and support a community and preserve the heritage and skills of this ancient craft.

LEYT is continuing to work on improving our supply chain and materials to keep our operations as carbon light as possible. 

LEYT is dedicated to working with our local factories to foster the unique community right here in NYC.

Our sustainability goal:

We strive to incorporate all sustainable materials wherever we can, even down to the packaging. That’s why we ship with recycled kraft boxes and use recycled tissue paper. All of our tags are made out of paper that is less treated, so everything can be recycled.
