About Us  About Us
Our Philosophy
We at FaeriesDance.com are committed to providing a complete environmentally conscious shopping experience for our customers. Our clothing is made of environmentally sensitive fabrics and low-impact dyes. We source products from both US manufacturers and overseas manufacturers who take care to ensure that all workers are treated fairly, are safe from sweatshop conditions and receive living wages. No children are employed by any of our manufacturers here or overseas.

Our office ethics reflect the same commitment. We use 100% post-consumer recycled paper to print our invoices, and print double-sided for all our in-house paper uses. We reuse boxes and packing materials that are shipped to us, and have gone to great lengths to provide you with environmentally sound gift wrapping options.

We also price all of our products below the manufacturer's retail price. We believe that the more we can introduce and expand environmentally conscious clothing into the marketplace, the better off we'll all be. So we're sacrificing a little per-item profit in the hopes of making our line accessible to a wider audience. Finally, we have an extensive charity program, donating 1% of our gross income to charities that protect our natural world.

We are always open to your suggestions on anything from website improvements, thoughts on how to streamline our operations or new products you would like to see in our store. Feel free to contact us with questions or comments.

What's in a Name?
Faerie is the traditional spelling of the Celtic tales of Faeries, sometimes referred to as the Fey or Fair Folk. Centuries of myths attach different characteristics to the Faeries, but most of them have a few things in common. Faeries are joyous and carefree, a bit mischievous and occasionally naughty, but on the whole, good-hearted. Faeries live in the heart of the forest, close to the land. They honor the earth and the trees, not as worship, but as a deeply ingrained respect and with knowledge of their connection to all things through their shared home. They express their gratitude through joy.
Faerie's Dance is not meant as a group of Faeries dancing, but the elegant, frivolous, frolicking dance of an individual Faerie. Each step of the dance is performed wildly, with great pleasure, and yet also honorably and gently with deep reverence. (One of my fantasies is to one day come upon a Faerie glade and witness the intoxicating dance of the Faerie.)

When I decided to open this shop my greatest goal was to ensure that every aspect be prepared with honor to our earth, but also to keep it fun and light; to express that honor not with somber veneration but through joy and delight. I realize that consumerism in general is not exactly the best thing for the planet, but let's face it; our society isn't going to change overnight. So let us joyously embrace who we are. Let us choose wonderful, pretty things that make us feel good about ourselves while simultaneously dancing our blissful dance with gentle footsteps upon the planet.

About Adrienne
Adrienne (that's me) is the owner and founder of FaeriesDance.com. I've got an M.S. degree in Applied Math and have always been good with numbers. I've been lucky enough to travel quite a bit and it was an encounter with a silverback gorilla on one of my journeys that first pushed me towards environmentalism. These days, I'm a full-fledged tree-hugger which includes being a vegan and using a bicycle as a "second car". I (mostly) keep up a low-tech personal website with lots of pictures. If you'd like to know more about me, check out www.ecolass.org.

About the Artist
Michael LaPeruta is our Faerie logo artist and Adrienne's cousin. He lives in NY with his wife, Robin, and two children. Mike has been drawing and painting all his life, and has a B.S. in Art Education from SUNY New Paltz. Although he has a wide range of styles, his favorites are cartoon and comic book illustration. He has been published in his college paper and has created a logo and menu designs for a local restaurant. We are hoping to eventually have a line of "Faerie Wear" that will include more of Mike's artwork on t-shirts and tanks.

About the Model

Several of our friends were kind enough to do some modeling for us early on. Eventually, fortune shined upon us and we found Nicolette Orr through a friend of ours. Nicolette is wonderful to work with and brings both elegance and a measure of fun to the Faerie's Dance line. She stays in shape by dancing and competing in gymnastics. She's young, fresh and enthusiastic, and embodies the younger generation's commitment to our environment. If you would like to get in touch with Nicolette for a modeling assignment, please contact us.


Our Blog: The Eco-Fashion Philosopher
In an attempt to provide our customers with as much information as possible, and hopefully start a dialogue where questions can be answered and concerns addressed, Adrienne has started a blog. Check out the The Eco-Fashion Philosopher to stay current on sustainable style.
