A curated marketplace for small + unique designers that are creating ethically and sustainably
One of the best things about The Chute is that all products and brands are hand-picked by the owner, Zoey, specifically for the shop's curated assortment of amazing goods. The other ethical marketplace's on the web are full of drop-shippers and over-saturated brands that are seen again and again. And even if it's different brands - it's the same plain tees and sweaters that you could find anywhere. Here at The Chute, we prize ourselves on digging deep for those creatives that are changing the sustainable shopping game while keeping their impact minimal and positive.
Keepin' It Small
There's nothing we love more than supporting small brands/designers. What's more meaningful than a pair of earrings molded and hammered by hand or a silk bag sewn by vintage scarfs in a New York City loft? The smaller the team, the more sustainable the impact - and the better you feel spending your money on items that matter.
Of 1! Hi, my name is Zoey and I own and run The Chute. I often use the phrase 'we' in all my talk of the brand here on the website + social media. Using 'I' just seems too weird. But, nevertheless, it is just I behind the curtain of this small biz! I'm the one posting on Instagram, responding to your emails, packing your orders, and everything in between. I pour so much love into this shop - it is truly my life's work. You don't know how much I appreciate every order, every shoutout, every recommendation - it really means the world. When you purchase a product, you aren't just supporting the shop - you're supporting the designer, you're supporting the movement, you're supporting the planet. And I couldn't be more grateful that you do.
