About

Dear Survivor is an LA based sustainable fashion brand founded by designer Christine Howell in 2015. Our collection has ranged from leather purses to fun and fine jewelry, but our purpose has always remained the same: to prove that the consumer market can be a powerful place to create positive change. We do this through our three main tenants - empowering survivors, sustainable design, and ethical manufacturing.

Sustainable Design

For us, sustainability means designing with scrap materials. Rather than letting perfectly good material go to waste, we are giving it a second life as jewelry.

Empowering Survivors

Since day one, we’ve donated a portion of every sale to GenerateHope and their fight against human trafficking. With your support, we’ve donated over $30,000 to their restorative programs.

Ethical Manufacturing

We’ve searched far and wide for the best manufacturing partners the US has to offer. Learn more about our partnership with Refugee Artisan Initiative and our LA factory here!
