Our Story

Traveling Black Dress is a simple idea by two designers swearing by the benefits of wearing sustainable fibers. We believe in change to fight the risk of fashion from fair labor to the production process that usually occurs in fast fashion and major labels. Other than our very own designs, tbd is also a fashion curator of the eco-conscious from smaller markets, specializing in Slow Fashion that is both sustainable and ethical. “Working with environmentally conscious partners to offer you naturally sourced clothing goodness” is our mission. We live and abide by this.

Traveling Black Dress is a believer in bringing out the beauty in our natural resources. Sustainable fabrics are full of advantages over traditional materials with the manufacturing effects of highly polluting air, water emissions, and polluting agents. By choosing only to use sustainable fabrics like GOTS certified organic cotton, bamboo, linen, lenzing modal, and supporting organic farming practices, we are contributing in our small way to lowering carbon emissions and prioritizing water and air cleanliness. Our clothing provides maximum comfort–whether traveling, lounging, or enjoying the outdoors. Traveling Black Dress is good for the earth to the touch of your skin. The most comfortable clothing for earth loving women on-the-go.

Founded in 2018 in Los Angeles, our exclusive designs collaborate with Slow Fashion Creator Linda Monkos. We desire to provide comfort basics and unique pieces for daily use. We are passionate about supporting the eco textile movement away from conventional cotton farmed with genetically modified seeds and heavy toxic pesticides back to organic farming and low impact processing.

A variety of styles and shapes in dresses that all fit under the umbrella of minimalist basics - perfect, classic shapes that will never go out of style - exquisite pieces that will live in your wardrobe for many years; they will become your instant favorites. You will use them over and over again.  Accessorize according to the event and location, and you will never feel like you are repeating the same look twice.  Our best-sellers are, of course, our maxi kaftans, and it is easy to see why - they are elegant, feminine, graceful, comfortable, versatile, AND made from super eco textile bamboo in the slow fashion way with care and integrity.
