Founders @ The Proper Label

Paris ➔ New York


The cadence in output of New York-based brand The Proper Label is a little slower than most — but for very good reason. Sister–brother duo and Co-Founders Sonia and Camille Tanoh hold admirable steel in upkeeping the highest ethical and sustainable standards. From recycled and sustainably sourced materials to workers’ rights, the Paris-born talents recognize the value — despite the obstacles — in building a brand that practices what it preaches. The pair travels often: from Côte d'Ivoire to Portugal, France and through the US, in order to keep an ear on the ground and give back to their global network of collaborators, workers and customers, as much as possible.
