At Young and Able, we are unique in the way we source our content. We take the time to engage with each and every one of our designers in order to convey their individual styles and processes to our customers. We believe that platforms like these are a necessary resource when establishing an emerging designer’s career and we want to contribute to a community that nurtures and supports them. Our designers take pride in their creative practices, particularly in regards to production. Many of the products featured on Young and Able are made by hand on a small scale with locally sourced materials. With recent focus on sustainability, “slow” fashion, and transparency, manufacturers and consumers are paying more attention to the quality and craft that goes into each of their products. We want to tell the story behind how and why a product is made, and create a community where both designers and consumers can interact at every level. When you support the designers at Young and Able, you are doing more than just buying their products---You are learning about their inspirations and stories, and supporting their future in the industry.
