Brigid Catiis

Independent clothing label Brigid Catiis is contemporary, stylish, and trendy - plus it’s 100% sustainable. Each limited-edition piece is made from recycled or otherwise eco-friendly fabrics, and the company donates 5 percent of its total earnings to non-profit organizations like International Green Shield and Haven House Women’s Shelter. Since each item is individually sewn and not mass-produced, the clothing is truly one-of-a-kind. The desire to wear something unique yet contemporary was designer Raissa Gerona’s inspiration behind founding the line. Before she starting her own label, she spent her time shopping for vintage clothing and accessories and making her own clothes.
