Feral Childe is the creation of bicoastal design team Moriah Carlson and Alice Wu. They make simple, comfortable clothing in amazing fabrications, often creating clothes out of their collaborative drawings. You might remember them from a fairly recent kerfuffle with Forever 21, after the chain store ripped off a rather unique pattern the brand made. But you should also know them because they make cool, totally sustainable and locally produced clothing. They have a “waste not, want not” ideology about their company, donating any scrap materials to local design schools for use, and they’re totally transparent, making sourcing and production information available to any customer who requests it. We really love their aesthetic, too. Check out some of our favorite looks above!
