A visit with Jennifer M Brown of Under The Root

Under The Root is an underpinning groundwork to a conscious, wakeful culture.  The intimate apparel designs are hand structured lingerie, loungerie, and boudoir accessories.  Each design and entire process utilizes industrial hemp, organic cottons, sustainable, upcycled, reclaimed and many times vintage textiles.  The owner, creative director, and designer Jennifer M. Brown established the brand in 2008 after studying dance, business, philosophy, and liberal education.

Jennifer M Brown patterns and grades every garment

Mostly self taught, Jennifer M Brown has designed this seasons collection through patterning, grading and technically designing each and every piece, until the fit of the garment is perfected. 

Fair Trade Hemp

Jennifer sources Fair Trade Hemp and is thorough in researching the practices of companies she sources textiles from. She knows there is a better way and is passionate about the possibility of regionally grown and produced hemp.

Every piece is hand dyed

Every Under The Root garment is hand dyed by Jennifer. She utilizes sustainable practices throughout every stage of production.

All sewing and construction takes place in Jennifer's Seattle Studio

There is great attention to detail in every piece Jennifer makes. All sewing and construction takes place in her Seattle, WA studio space.
