Marina & Co’s Terra jumper in Fern
Sustainability, ethical sourcing and slow fashion are the threads that make up boutique clothing brand YIREH (shopyireh.com). While designer and owner Emily Jaime seeks to encourage and empower the women who wear her clothes, she also extends the sentiment to those who create them. Though designed locally in Honolulu, YIREH’s clothes are ethically made in Bali in two different women-founded factories that guarantee workers fair pay and benefits. “We curate limited releases in each print, and once they’re sold out, they’re gone for good!” says Jaime.

The versatility of Cobalt & Tawny’s clothes makes them perfect as a casual beach cover-up or a statement piece guaranteed to turn heads at a special occasion.
