Signature Style: TranquiliT is a line of layers in rayon made from organic bamboo and designed by moi. We sew locally, are a proud member of 1% for the Planet, and plant 150 trees monthly while also donating a portion of proceeds to Tranquil Space Foundation, Pigs Animal Sanctuary, and Nest. In addition, we offer vintage and reclaimed goodies because it doesn't get more eco than reusing! 

Come see us at DC's Greenfestival September 29 + 30. Save the date for our fall "Breakfast at TranquiliT" Pop Up Shop on Saturday, October 20 10-2 chez moi.
