We're staying home to slow the spread. The future is uncertain, but we'll be back up and shipping as soon as possible. Thanks for supporting our work to reconnect clothing with the land!

Meet The Founder

Meet The Founder - Sarah Danu - Danu Organic

It’s me, Sarah Danu, the founder & creator of Danu Organic. Danu Organic was practically an accident. It was sustainable fashion week and I was attending a few sustainable fashion events in my community with no agenda.
At one of these events, I met Sally Fox

 —  Sally has been breeding and growing colored cotton for over thirty years through many challenges. She’d just gotten to a place where she was ready to turn her colored cotton bolls (yes, that is the correct spelling) into fabric. I fell in love and immediately pre-ordered 1000 lbs. The very day I met her. This quantity of cotton was necessary for our North Carolina mill to even consider making the fabric.

Over the next year, Sally & I worked together to bring Danu Organic to life, successfully launching in June of 2019.

My mission for Danu Organic is big: Get naturally colored, organic clothes in the awareness, and eventually the closet, of every person.

Designing the clothing has proven a stimulating, fun challenge for me. I'm not a designer by training, but I have always had an excellent eye for beauty. I grew up sewing quilts & scrunchies with my mom. I've found these skills, as well as a sharp intuition and organization, to be a great clothing clothing design toolkit. As the business is growing, I am sinking deeper & deeper into the creative process in order to create uniquely stunning yet very wearable clothing.

This company is a direct reflection of my personal values. We don't do anything for show. We do things the right way — which is often the longest & hardest. Thanks for being here on my journey with Danu.

When I'm not working on Danu Organic, I can be found hosting my podcast, Contrapreneur, making sprinkles, or at home on my lovingly restored 1974 sailboat, where I live simply & sustainably at sea with my partner.
