Shopper’s Diary: Suay’s Ethically Made Home Goods from Los Angeles

We’re currently loving Suay, a Los Angeles-based company that promotes upcycling through making goods from a minimum of 85 percent post-consumer waste. Suay says their “dedication to design, coupled with a drive for activism, is putting reclaimed product at the center of a social, economic, and environmental revolution.” Gathering most of their fabrics from deadstock (unsold/unsellable materials), Suay creates a range of high-quality home goods and apparel. From quilted duvet covers to linen napkin sets, their products all feature bold color palettes that will brighten up a room. All of Suay’s goods are available online and at their sew shop in LA.

Here’s a look at a few of our picks:
