About Us

 

Island Tribe is a philosophy of like minds with similar values and a lifestyle that advocates for slow fashion, human sustainability, wellness, and spiritual connectedness as a tribe. 

 A fashion and wellness destination based in Palm Springs, California. Island Tribe was founded by designer, stylist, and author Angeline Hayling and co-founder designer photographer “OD” Odero. Island Tribe is inspired by global travels, culture, and the elements of life.

Slow Fashion Movement

Island Tribe believes in the power to change how fashion is made and consumed by embracing slow fashion, advocating for manufacturing that respects human sustainability and the environment. Eco-friendly collections are made with sustainable or natural fibers, made to order, and produced in small batches to reduce waste. Island Tribe embraces a fair-trade partnership with global artisans. The collections are designed and predominantly made in California, giving back to the community and stimulating the local economy. 

 Advocacy

Did you know that the fashion industry is one of the most polluting industries in the world? Fast fashion is depleting the Earth's natural resources at an alarming rate through over-production and unethical practices. As a sustainable brand, Island Tribe contributes to indigenous forest restorations worldwide by planting trees with each purchase. 

Human Sustainability 

The Key to a balanced life is a healthy relationship between the mind, body, and soul. Over the years, Island Tribe has fostered a dynamic community. A "Tribe" conscious of the healing power of mother nature and the art of holistic living. Island Tribe curates healing experiences at their desert sanctuary, where the collective is welcomed to recharge, create, and be empowered.
