Comfortable and ethically made for you.

Begonia Leaf Collection

Softest Materials

We use both organic cotton/spandex (90/10) and a bamboo/organic cotton/spandex blend (67/30/3) for the clothing we manufacture in house. The clothing we source for dyeing and printing is also made with organic cotton or a bamboo blend.

Puns for days

We love a good pun here at May and Mary. Our favorite is the Top Crops Crop Top, featuring illustrations of the top three crops grown in the United States (corn, wheat and soy). These crop tops are made with the highest quality organic cotton/spandex fabric and printed with hand carved blocks right here in our studio.

Hand Dyed and Printed

Our block printed pieces are made using hand carved linotype blocks to carefully stamp the design onto each garment. We use a variety of dye methods, from batch dyeing to ice dyeing. Each piece is slightly different from the next, which is what makes them special, original artworks.

Testimonials

"If I could wear only @mayandmaryapparel bra/crop tops on my top half for the rest of my life I'd be so happy. It's so hard to find a comfy, simple cotton bra and Heidi also makes them so beautiful with the tie dye!"

"My wardrobe is stocked with May and Mary pieces. Everything is so versatile, comfortable, flattering, and unique. People are constantly asking me where I got what I'm wearing whenever I wear a May and Mary piece. And when I say versatility, I mean it--- I lounge, I hike, I dress up & go out all in the same shirt!! The fabric is moisture wicking and perfect for backpacking trips. The cuts are cute and I feel confident when I go out with friends. I have worn one of my May and Mary shirts twice a week every summer for YEARS and it still looks amazing! You can't go wrong here. You're going to find your new favorite clothes."

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.
