    Thank you to Single Prop Rum for sponsoring Green Week!

    Hopping among the islands of the Caribbean in a small, single prop airplane, we discovered and fell in love with a local tradition: slicing open fresh coconuts and pouring in locally made rum. Leaving behind the white sand beaches and tropical sunsets, we headed home, bringing this tradition with us. Single Prop tells the story of our adventure—perfect combination of premium Caribbean rum and pure coconut water; for wherever your journey takes you.

    In a sunny fifth-floor studio in South Philly’s Bok building, brother and sister duo Nicole and Jordan Haddad produce distinctive clothing with quality fabrics. Their “slow fashion” approach — extensive fabric research and testing, and careful design and fitting — opposes the human and environmental exploitation of industrial clothing production. All fabrics are hand-printed in their studio or machine knitted by local mills. All garments are machine washable.

    If you love what we do, you can support our mission with a one-time or monthly contribution:
