PHILOSOPHY & SUSTAINABILITY
Sustainable, Small Batch + Made to Order <3
BECAUSE ETHICAL MANUFACTURING MATTERS
Born out of the love of creating and inspired by the Earth -- MacKenzie83 is centered on a deep commitment to leaving as little impact on the Earth as possible.
It is our responsibility to grow with sustainability. Through research, may we develop better alternatives, and not just use marketing to disguise plastic.
MADE WITH LOVE
From NY, with love -- the heart of the 83 studio.
The MacK bag is made for stylish women who are looking for authentic silhouettes, that are both modern and ethical. Each bag is cut and sewn right outside of NYC. Because our bags are made locally, custom opportunities are always available -- inquire about custom orders.
All 83 clothing is sustainably made to order, or created in limited collection releases. This eliminates waste and minimizes our carbon footprint. MacKenzie83 is dedicated to innovation in women’s streetwear and handbag styles while maintaining focus on ethical and sustainable manufacturing. The 83 girl feels confident in knowing her style was made with the planet and people in mind.
MacKenzie83 considers the impacts of the fashion industry and the impact it has on the environment. Every effort is made to reduce waste in all steps of our production process. Our designs are centered on salvage/recycled denim, chemical free leather, and leather that is directly the result of the free-range meat industry. All textile and leather scraps are recycled and repurposed to eliminate waste. Our custom hardware is developed with recycled metals.
Our leather comes from local and domestic tanneries that hold the highest of standards. Our hardware is custom made from recycled metal. We make all of our styles right here in New York. <3
WHERE LEATHER COMES FROM MATTERS
A note on the Farm to Arm® Collection:
This collection was made to not support factory farming, using leather bi-product from local free-range family owned farms in Virginia and New York. This vegetable-tanned leather is made without the use of harmful chemicals, free from polyurethanes (plastic), chrome or heavy metals, formaldehyde and other known dangerous chemicals. All colors and dyes are from natural and non-toxic sources.
HANDCRAFTED AMERICAN LEATHER
The finest American leather hides are used for all handbags and cuffs. MacKenzie83 works with domestic tanneries to source and develop the highest quality leathers. All leathers are ethically sourced American hides.
Up-cycled leather from jackets, bags or dead-stock leather.
All handbag linings are made of organic cotton. Most of our clothing styles are made with organic cotton.
Our denim is made in the USA from recycled cotton.
Our zipper pulls, rivets, buckles and other retail hardware are made from recycled metal.
HANG-TAGS, BOXES & POLYBAGS
Our hang-tags are made with recycled paper. Our boxes are 100% recycled cardboard and our poly bags are made with recycled plastic.
Our handbag linings & bandanas are digitally printed with non-toxic inks and zero water waste.
For every purchase from our online store, MacKenzie83 plants a tree for you through plantabillion.org.
All sticker purchases are directly donated to local charities.
