of us as your GUARDIAN ANGELS for clothing that's always comfortable,
always in style, always appropriate.
are two women, sisters-in law, who live in a small town in western
Massachusetts with our husbands, Brooke and Roy, and our dogs (Gordon
Setters), Angus and Phoebe. We share a common philosophy about clothing
design and about most things in general. We wear what we make; if
we wouldn't wear it
we won't make it.
design our clothing for women who enjoy being themselves. They are
sewn by New England women who have consciously chosen their workplace,
working conditions, hours, and wages. Our goal is to help keep talented
local women working.
believe in local responsibility. Part of our proceeds benefits local
charities: The Western Massachusetts Food Bank, which distributes
food to those in need, & the Amherst Survival Center, which distribute
food & clothing to area residents.
unspoiled views inspire us. At the end of every working day we walk
to the top of Long Hill with our dogs and gaze across the valley.
And if there is snow on the ground, you will find us sledding down
the long, winding trail, silk fiesta pants and all. Come spring and
summer you will see us tending our gardens (in fiesta pants) after
hours. Shirley grows the most wonderful flowers.
hope you will enjoy your clothing from First Mountain Design as much
as we do.
