Aloha! I'm Ashley, the designer, seamstress and creator of AshleyRose Clothing. I'm mostly known for my love of everything green (think plants, smoothies, and mountains)-- if you couldn't guess that from my designs! I'm addicted to DIY projects and making things from scratch, but I've yet to make a loaf of bread that tastes as good as it smells. You can find me most days in my sewing room loft overlooking the ocean or among my collection of succulents if I'm not at the beach with my fiance Pito and our adorable Doodle Koa.
I started this small business in the spring of 2016 after packing my two suitcases and moving to Hawaii. I found myself with a blank slate filled with endless opportunities after finishing the Peace Corps. I was inspired to create something that was meaningful and embodied my core values of integrity, thoughtfulness and adventure.
While my clothing has evolved immensely over the past several years of growth, I've always remained true to my sustainable methods of production. My team and I cut and sew all of our garments locally in Hawaii using only the highest quality fabrics. Quality fabric is significantly more durable, feels better against delicate skin, and gets softer with each wear.
I strive to create thoughtful, well-designed, and long-lasting garments. By ultimately creating seasonless pieces that can be worn a myriad of ways, I aim to discourage the disposable view of clothing that has become increasingly pervasive. My hope is to return to the days of a minimal, functional wardrobe worthy of care and passing on.
I believe in mindful, careful consumption of the highest qualityproducts so that customers can buy fewer of them. AshleyRose Clothingcares deeply about making things the right way and chooses to focus onhigh-quality products rather than profits. My business is for thosewho want better, not more. Respecting the people we work with,fostering relationships within the community, promoting positivecompany culture, and consciously recognizing the environment are justas important as the products we make.
