At Nueve Los Angeles, we fearlessly set very high standards for ethical and environmental products that will last a lifetime. We believe the word sustainable is overused and greenwashed. Instead, we live by our values of slow fashion, timeless designs, and supporting fearless designers, local artisans, and change makers.

Our standards require compliance from every brand to prioritize social and environmental responsibility in their practices. By working closely with the over 40 designers featured on our site, we aim to be a welcoming space for ethical customers like you. 

Our values will evolve over time due to the rapid innovation by designers, suppliers, and local artisans working towards raising the bar on ethics, health, safety, and transparency. You can shop easier knowing everything you buy aligns with our values and standards.



At Nueve Los Angeles, our designers seek constantly to improve their ethical and environmental standards, and some take their practices even further.

Whether it’s a one-woman shop or a small group of women artisans, shop the products produced by women or from women-owned companies. We celebrate their craftmanship in beautiful, timeless designs. We’re proud that over 95% of our brands are led by women. 


Buying local products helps reduce carbon emissions due to transportation in production and delivery. Purchasing products made in the United States ensures a lower carbon footprint and strict labor and safety standards. 


Supporting Vegan isn't just a food choice. Choosing the right products can also help to prevent cruelty to animals. This collection assures that Cruelty-Free, Leaping Bunny, and Beauty without Bunnies are certified vegan brands that do not negatively impact animals.
