Mary Brewster, Founder & Owner of American Flora
American Flora means Sustainability, American Manufacturing and Quality Products.
American Flora is an outgrowth of a commitment to creating beautiful products in a socially conscious way. Nature’s beauty reveals colors and textures that artists have been trying to replicate for centuries. Fashion allows for a melding of such elements.
Our collection encourages individual style and aplomb.
We embrace American Manufacturing, making it possible to meet the men and women who make what we sell.
We have explored several areas of the sustainable fashion world and believe that pivoting indicates growth. That being said, the constant has been our fabric.
Repreve fabric started life as a used plastic bottle. It’s our fabric of choice.
Mary has over 30 years experience in Art and Design. She’s been influenced greatly by art and fashion throughout Europe. She named her company after Bottecelli’s Flora, the goddess of flowers. Extensive years in the ballet studio have served to foster the love of movement and beauty, two important elements of fashion.
