Bohyne

Sourcing materials from unused or over-purchased stock, Bohyne strives to help reduce existing industry waste, saving yards of beautiful fabric from landfills or burn pits. When it comes to craftsmanship, each thoughtfully crafted piece is handmade at certified fair-trade co-ops committed to ethical environmental and labor practices. “When you purchase a gown for $100, you’ve got to think about the implications of how the dress was produced". Bohyne Owner and Designer, Colleen Bankovich urges, “I believe nobody should suffer so that I can wear a wedding gown or ceremonial outfit - no living thing should be caused pain.”

"Bohyne represents a bridal revolution -- one in which I believe we are vastly overdue. Wedding dresses are inherently unsustainable. Bohyne's leading the change by creating designs to be reworn, or that can be redesigned, to remain in your wardrobe forever."

Expect to see a little bit of everything in the new Bohyne collection, from trousers and jumpsuits to cami tops, dresses with ornate overlays, and more formal gowns. Each machine-washable piece is built to last, purposefully designed to be reworked and worn again. “We’re offering something more conscious and thoughtful than what’s out there,” explains Bankovich. Rather than an investment in a one-day event, “this is an investment in future generations and the people who craft these items. Every step we take is a step toward progress.”
