Video: An Interview with Leslie Yang of Feisty Elle


The idea of being sustainable, eco or green has changed tremendously over the past few years, so it’s hard to say what fits into these three categories.

Below are just a few ways that Leslie Yang of Feisty Elle embodies these concepts:

  • Using eco friendly materials such as bamboo ply and 100 percent merino wool felt.
  • Keeping it green at the Feisty Elle office and using packaging made from recycled content as well as recycling all packaging and materials.
  • Producing locally with all pieces designed and assembled by hand in San Francisco as well as sharing a commitment to working with local business (suppliers, manufacturers, printers) whenever possible.

I recently caught up with Leslie in New York at the NOW Showcase to see what makes her tick when it comes to sustainability. Here’s what she had to say.
