Our Story

Style with a heart of service
The only sustainable boutique in Wilmington


Look good, feel good, and do good.


We believe in better.

Better material. Better made.


At Cloth + Design, you can shop confidently and consciously knowing your garments were designed to be worn and washed on repeat. We handpick collections with durability, longevity, and sustainability in mind. 


Made from 100% biodegradable fabrics grown, dyed, and produced free of chemicals, our collection is as gentle on the skin as it is on the environment. 


Our wardrobe staples and seasonal ware is designed to defy fast fashion trends, and empower you to embrace your unique style and build a timeless capsule wardrobe you can treasure for years to come.

What does sustainable mean to us? 

It means more of this:


  • Ethical treatment of workers
  • Safe and clean working conditions
  • 100% biodegradable fabric
  • Gentle fabrics free from harsh chemicals
  • Tailor-made sizing to reduce overcuts

And NONE of this:

  • Microplastics
  • 1-wear garments
  • High lead levels and other harmful chemicals 


A note from our founder

Have you ever wondered where your clothes come from? Who makes them? How are they being treated? I’ll spare you the Google and just leave it at this – it’s not pretty. It’s ugly, unsafe, and unethical. And it’s happening in the high volume, low quality world of fast fashion. 


Ever since I can remember, I’ve been a conscious shopper. I’d heard rumors about factory conditions overseas. I grew up along the coast and learned about the way our oceans were littered with unwanted clothing. It was my dream to own my own store since I was 19. 


To me and my family, Cloth + Design is more than a sustainable boutique. It’s a chance to remove the “shame,” from being an outfit repeater (yes, please!). To instill the importance of investing in quality garments that can be passed down and loved by generations of women. To empower women to look good, feel good and do good by the Earth. 


With conscious care and artful detail, 

Sydney
