The Roots

Karen Stewart and Howard Brown, partners in life and work, launched their ethical fashion brand in 2002 from Los Angeles, California. Inspired by their love and respect for nature and a passion for design, Karen and Howard were filled with a sense of purpose and determined to pioneer the sustainable fashion movement.

Design is a passion and a way of life for Karen and Howard. Their professional journey stems from a union of creativity and purpose. They have been skilled through years of designing for some of the most distinguished best-of-class lifestyle brands. Karen, a trained painter and New York native, and Howard, a graphic artist and Montana native, oversee every aspect of the product and brand themselves.

Each Stewart+Brown collection, at an elemental level, is a fusion of experiences and insights filtered through the duo’s creative core and rendered into the brands own unique and personal aesthetic. While finding inspiration in all aspects of life, the brand’s craft is mostly influenced by its wonderful team of committed and caring individuals and the belief in a future for future generations including Karen and Howard’s two small children Hazel and Huxley.

Our Mission

Stewart+Brown believes in optimizing their designs and lives to attain the highest standards of quality and functional style while extracting the bare minimum from Earth’s precious capital. Stewart+Brown practices and promotes a symbiotic and harmonious relationship between business, community, and nature. We aspire to apply the wisdom of sustainability to everything we do while inspiring others, just as we have been inspired, to do the same.
