Every product in the boutique is cruelty-free and mostly vegan. The decision to include wool is based on promoting the development of endangered species such as the Vicuña in Argentina and restoring whole ecosystems. The products have a Wildlife Friendly Certification ensuring the welfare of the animals. This certificate also applies to the merino sheep wool we use. Encouraging healthy ecosystems and native communities to raise these animals again so they can provide for their families is as important to us as veganism.
Harebell produces very low carbon footprint:
We compensate the carbon footprint caused by importation by planting Old Native Trees in the LA area (old trees filter so much more oxygen!)
At Harebell every product we sell can be pre-ordered and custom-made for any type of body shape and size. If you can’t find your size or it is out of stock, just backorder! The wait is worth it. You will have a Latin American designer and their team working specifically on your product that will fly in with our monthly orders and delivered to your door just the way you envisioned it . This way we can guarantee it’s going to be a perfect fit thus avoiding overstocking and encouraging slow fashion.
We want you to be happy with the way you live and consume... The products your wear can make a huge difference. We believe in small steps. We care about the happiness of our team so we created a space for them to become their better self. Spiritual growth, volunteering and giving back are as important to us as the day-to-day tasks. We care about our supply chain and creating more and better opportunities for Latin American designers. We encourage designers to become sustainable and do value-based businesses. We show them that doing things in a different way is totally possible. Let’s work together for a happier world!

Harebell has strict quality measurements. We ensure every brand and designer is compliant with those rules and responds to our core values and standards including: caring for people and the environment, fairness and dignifying work conditions, transparency, and animal welfare.
Our process after finding a brand involves thoroughly reviewing their work processes, communications and materials. After they qualify, Denise meets them personally and asks them questions and might request proofs and bills as well. The questions are oriented towards understanding the values they stand for, their work ethic and their approach to sustainable fashion and then deciding if they are a good match/addition to the company. Finally, they are added to the Boutique sometimes with just a collection others as a whole.
