HarperSage is an ethical lifestyle brand that empowers multi-faceted women through both community and style! We believe that you change more than your clothes. That’s why we create thoughtful, stylish, comfortable fashion staples made to take you through everything you feel and all the things you do. We celebrate versatility, design for duality, and champion the advancement of women in everything we do!
In Meghan's own words..."I grew up in the 1990s, the youngest of five trying to keep up with my older brothers. I started playing soccer when I was 4 years old, and adults and peers were quick to label me a “tomboy.” I went on to play D1 soccer at the University of Wisconsin, Madison (UW), but quickly started to look for a creative outlet to balance out the grind of competition. I quickly discovered a new passion of mine as I chose to study textile and fashion design at UW, eventually landing at the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC after my time at UW. I later designed for "ultra-femme" brands like Carolina Herrera and Anthropologie, where at times, my designs were deemed too “masculine." It was almost as if I had an identity crisis, being both athletic and creative! I started to realize just how much the fashion industry, and culture has siloed women into just "one" singular box for so long. Brands that continue to do so, it no longer resonates with the modern day woman, as we are multi-faceted!
HarperSage was born from my desire to embrace my own duality and to bring this experience to other women like me. We are on a mission to shine a light on every woman's right to exist in the way that feels right to her, whether that is within our local community or within our supply chain. I hope to inspire other women like you to believe they, too, can be anything they want, even if those things seem like opposites!"
Our DESIGNS Are...
Versatile. Each piece belongs to one of our signature personas: soft, romantic Harper or strong, adventurous Sage, and each piece is designed to be mixed, matched, and styled according to your dynamic lifestyle.
Consciously sourced. We hand-select super soft, strikingly beautiful textiles and trims sourced in local markets in Delhi, India, for our pieces and use deadstock fabrics wherever possible. Sometimes we are even able to find gems within the upper level of our factory!
Ethically made. We manufacture our pieces exclusively at women-owned factories. Currently, we have one manufacturing partner in Delhi, India. They are a member of SEDEX, which helps to verify the factory operates responsibly and sustainably and that workers are protected. We've also visited and worked alongside them in the factory on multiple occasions and have a close personal relationship with them.
High quality. Quality craftsmanship, fabrics, and finishings are the benchmark of our product. We create everything in small batches with the utmost care so that your HarperSage will last for years to come.
