Do you ever come across a designer, a look, or a brand where the aesthetic appeals to you so much that it almost feels like was made for you? It’s pretty rare for this to happen for me, but ever since I discovered Modern Citizen I’ve been slightly obsessed with just about everything they do.
One quick look at their site and it’s easy to see that their clothes, accessories, and homewares are all beautiful. Each piece is classic with an added modern twist, and is refreshingly simple and clean. But in addition to being completely on point visually, they also prioritize an ethical supply chain.
As a company, Modern Citizen has purposely chosen not to source product from countries such as Bangladesh, Pakistan, and Vietnam where the manufacturing industry is still emerging. And almost all of the products sourced from other brands, like their 14K jewelry, are handmade in the U.S. by artisans — and usually female entrepreneurs who manage their own production. As someone who likes beautiful things and is also learning to be a more conscious shopper, I’m so happy to support this brand and introduce them to you!
