Maker Spotlight

Herderin

Herderin

San Rafael. Established 2018.

Herderin is an empathic design house for clothing dedicated to creating size inclusive, wearable garments for everyday life. Deeply committed to both the health of the earth and ourselves, all of their clothing is made from traditionally grown, knit, and woven fabrics. They source primarily from US organic farmers, and cut and sew fabric from their own authentic, handmade patterns.

Many of Herderin’s garments are gender fluid and focus on a deep connection to authentic physical and emotional comfort.
