About

with respect for the environment, animals, and people

Three Leaves, founded in 2012 in Red Hook, Brooklyn, provides men with cruelty free, socially responsible, eco friendly, organic men's clothing and vegan boots, shoes, and sneakers.  Three Leaves aims to be the source for ethical fashion for the man who lives without compromise.

Eco Friendly

We only carry items that meet a strict criteria of environmental standards, including items certified by Oeko-Tex, Global Organic Textile Standard, certified organic by the Soil Association, and OE 100.  These carefully selected pieces are made of organic cotton, recycled PET (plastic bottles), and hemp, in addition to an array of other eco friendly materials.

In addition to using recycled shipping materials, we pay special attention to reduce the amount of shipping material in each delivery.

Animal Friendly

We have a selection of vegan and leather-free footwear. Our wool clothing comes from Happy Sheep. While we strive to be 100% leather-free, we do carry some clothing made with minimal leather (i.e. jacket zippers).  Honeybee preferred

Socially responsible

No sweatshop labor here.  Most brands we carry are certified to ensure the fair treatment of workers.

The bluesign® standard heads one step further than an eco-label.

Besides these important aspects, the principle of resource conservation plays a major role within the bluesign® standard.
