clothing that feels good

MAY AND MARY is a sustainable clothing brand offering a range of active-inspired, every day wears for your mind, body and spirit. We believe that clothing should be classic and clean, as comfortable as it is stylish, and fun to wear. We just want to make clothes that fit in your wardrobe and your life.

We make everything ethically in the US with organic and renewable materials because it’s important to be kind to this planet that gives us so much. We work with other artists and create one of a kind, hand printed, exclusive fabrics and our hand dyed colors are done in house for limited edition pieces each season.


We use an organic cotton/spandex (90/10) that is grown, milled, and sold by a small company in North Carolina and a bamboo/organic cotton/spandex blend (67/30/3) that is grown and milled in India and fairly traded with a company in California.

This stuff is the best. It’s pricey and sometimes hard to keep in stock, but both our organic cotton and bamboo fabrics have such an amazing soft touch and drape that we can’t imagine anything better.

Who are May and Mary?

I named May and Mary after my grandparents, Maynard and Mary Brown. These people brought me up to believe that I could do anything. They fostered an environment of creativity and encouraged me to follow my dreams. They also taught me my first lessons in sustainability before I knew to call it anything but sorting cans. Living by their example of reducing waste, reusing what you can and recycling the rest has made my business what it is today.

I’m Heidi, the owner and designer here. I live to create in a little spot in Portland with my cat, Keith.
