Jeans Day is in full force across the company and it still gets me every time. For whatever reason, wearing jeans is a total mood changer. Everyone seems to walk with a little more pep in their step.

Amour Vert is committed to making great clothing with a design philosophy that promotes zero waste. Think non-toxic dyes, efficient use of fabric and carpooling fabrics with local businesses.
