They are a locally produced, sustainable and ethical brand. They make their products in Los Angeles and have a dedicated team that searches for pre existing and special vintage fabrics dating back to the 1940's. Instead of producing more fabrics they buy overstock or buy fabrics people are willing to let go of after having a for a long time. They restore them and use them. Merritt uses all natural fibers from silks to cottons to tencels, so they can naturally biodegrade into the earth.
