Where Anti-Conventional is Rad
Based out of San Clemente, California, Mulch is a cutting-edge responsible fashion house. Founders and brothers, Mehr Alejandro and Philippe Zarif created Mulch California with the intent of giving people and nature an active role in determining the future of fashion and how this industry impacts our planet.
Since launching an online retail shop (www.mulchcalifornia.com) in January 2016, Mulch has quickly caught the attention of many high-profile figures, including professional athletes and celebrities. While the quality products and killer designs garner an undeniable appeal, it is Mulch California’s ethical stance that is making waves in the fashion world.
As a socially and environmentally responsible company, Mulch California tolerates no waste; Mulch takes recycled and overage fabrics, and hand dyes them to create completely unique one-of-a-kind designs. The stunning hand-dyed fabrics and made-to-order clothing is manufactured in California in a high quality supply chain that fully complies with fair trade labor.
Where transparency and ethics define Mulch California’s morals, diversity is at the heart of the brand. This commitment to diversity and individuality really hits home when you slip on a pair of the carefully tailored So Cal pants, marked by the Mulch California signature logo on the left pocket.
Mulch kicked things off with a men’s collection, and has recently expanded into women’s clothing with the release of the harem pant. After much research and prototyping, Mehr Alejandro has perfected the “function meets fashion” harem design. The relaxed fit of this pant slims at the ankles and hits the waist with an elasticated waistband and drawstring. Designed with tailored pleats, which layer over two front pockets, the harem pant considers both visual appeal and practicality. It’s the fine balance between style and comfort, and the versatility that takes it from day to night.
These harem pants, along with the rest of Mulch California’s clothing, is available in cotton silk blends with stretch, thin cottons, tencel, corduroy, and rayon viscose, to name a few of the possible fabric variations. With an upcoming fall collection, new shirts, and an always fresh flair, Mulch California is the one to watch.
