Founded in 2009 by environmentalists Alexx Jae Monkarsh and Bari Milken Bernstein, Alexx Jae & Milk aims to create the maximum in modern, effortless pieces while making a minimal impact on the environment. Friends since childhood, Alexx and Bari were brought up with an eco state of mind: Alexx is the daughter of Debbie Levin, president of the Environment Media Association (EMA), and Bari is the daughter of philanthropist Michael Milken.
Alexx Jae and Milk base their contemporary, environmentally friendly line in Los Angeles, and make good use of the many resources found there. All their fabrics and materials are sourced locally to minimize the company’s carbon footprint and waste. Their cotton and knit products are made from excess garments (that would have been discarded otherwise) and include materials such as organic cotton, organic bamboo, and natural coconut buttons. Alexx Jae and Milk’s ongoing mission is one we feel strongly about as well at Master & Muse – to spread the message that it’s possible to enjoy the freedom to look good while taking care of our earth at the same time.
