Dagne Dover’s Three Female Cofounders Are Passionate About Sustainable Fashion

“As a company, we’ve always loved what we do, but initially the lack of sustainable material options was an issue that we didn’t feel 100% great about,” say the cofounders. “Now, we are prouder than ever before about the products we’re introducing to our customers. Sustainability hits home because as parents, we always are talking to our kids about climate change. We have to do our best to preserve nature for them.”

As the fashion industry moves increasingly in the direction of sustainability, Dagne Dover has emerged to meet consumer demand. The eco-conscious brand creates bags, backpacks and wallets with a functional minimalist design built for today’s modern lifestyle, able to transition easily from work to play to travel. It was founded in 2013 by three women – Melissa Mash (CEO), Deepa Gandhi (COO) and Jessy Dover (CCO) – all of whom have a passionate commitment to environmentally and socially conscious business practices.

All products from Dagne Dover’s signature + leather line feature Repreve recycled linings and dust bags created entirely out of plastic bottles. Many items are 100% vegan. The company focuses on ethical manufacturing, minimizing waste and avoiding toxic chemicals in production. Dagne Dover’s flagship store is in Soho, and products are also sold in all Nordstrom locations in the U.S. and Canada, as well as online.
