Eight + Sand
For Noushie Mirabedi and Ronda Raymond, Eight + Sand is about re-establishing a connection with our clothes. The two founders grew up with an ingrained appreciation for the heirlooms that lay almost unnoticed around their family's homes - a great grandmother's mixing bowl, a thick wool coat still weathering storms after 50 years, a waxed bag hearty and useful after decades of wear. Simple, well made objects from a time when endurance was seen as a positive, and craftsmanship an honored profession. Mirabedi and Raymond return to those old world values by creating fine-hewn, beautifully crafted clothing made for the long road ahead. Willing to sacrifice profits for quality and ethics, Eight + Sand is committed to reducing waste, supporting the environment, and working with small, family-owned, American manufacturers where workers are respected and well-compensated.
