JUNG was born out of love for the women in our lives. We started by creating a piece to make life easier for new mothers which included a built-in modesty cloth as part of the dress so there was one less thing to carry around. From day one we had the mission to make sure everything we created was as sustainable as possible. Today we have developed the collection to include pieces for all women regardless of their stage in life, with the same mission of creating functional and sustainable clothing.
Conscious clothing should consist of the following elements: Non-harmful to the environment and the people who produced it. It should serve more than just vanity purposes, it should last through trends & age, it should last through our gross culture of disposability, and it should last through the changes of our body. Read more on our commitment here.
From the outset, we refuse to be yet another clothing brand contributing to the piling waste in the landfill. It has to be sustainable or it’s all out for us. Instead of creating new material from scratch, we found ways to utilize what is supposedly ‘waste’ and turn them into beautiful garments. Our collections are made of outstanding fabric stock (or better known as deadstock), and natural fiber generated from inedible byproducts from the agriculture industry, such as lemongrass stem, galangal stem and etc. We also found innovative use of coffee grounds and turned them into buttons!

Designed & Made to Last
Designs make up a big part in our process. Unlike conventional collections where the designs start from a theme or inspiration, ours start from the limiting deadstock we have on hand so the styles have to be designed around the characteristics of the fabric. Each style is given a contemporary look with concealed nursing function so you can still wear them irregardless of your body’s changes. We also create flexible bottoms that will fit you still when your body changes a size or 2, all made possible with clever pattern making.
I Made Your Clothes
The mindfully made pieces you wear are made by our partners in Thailand, in a safe working environment audited by local authorities and are paid with fair wages. Some of our smaller batches are made in our in-house studio.
We minimize waste wherever we can. In line with our environmental commitment, we do not use any plastics in our packaging. Our packaging is made from recycled post-consumer material, and we produce only whatever is necessary for the well keeping of your garments.
From start to finish we make our garments last for you, so together we could work towards minimizing our waste, both as a producer & consumer.
