Meet the brand

OUR PURPOSE

Sorella Clothing Co. is a fashion-forward elevated outdoor and leisure wear line in women’s and children’s. Sorella Clothing Co. supports the growth of a circular economy by going against the current “take, make, waste” mentality of the fashion industry by making conscious and informed decisions, all while offering high quality products that our customers can proudly wear. All garments are manufactured in the U.S. and raw materials are sustainability and responsibly sourced. Sorella Clothing Co. is transparent in sourcing and manufacturing practices to ensure customers that their purchase from Sorella Clothing Co. is responsible.

Sorella means “sister” in Italian. Growing up in South Texas, cousins Carolina, Margaret, and Alicia were practically sisters. As they grew up their common interest in the outdoors, fashion design, and textiles culminated in a project to create a brand where women can express themselves while wearing fashionable, elevated clothing for the outdoors. Sorella is a community for all women who wish to responsibly feminize outdoor fashion.

Sorella Clothing Co. recognized an opportunity for growth for the currently small market of fashionable yet affordable outdoor apparel for women and children.

It’s a man’s world when it comes to fashionable, high quality, and affordable outdoor apparel - Sorella Clothing Co. hopes to change this.

At Sorella Clothing Co. the customer is the expert. The Sorella team spent months researching what their customers want and need, thus delivering a product that is unique in itself as countless hours have been spent attending to details, quality, and fit.

Co-Founder, Alicia Amberson, designs all of Sorella Clothing Co.’s  fabrics and silk products - painted by hand, digitally scanned, and worked through Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator.

Sorella Clothing Co. is a new era for women and children who enjoy the outdoors. Their mission is to create a community, by bringing women together with a high quality product that is consciously made and sourced, offering clean and versatile fashion-forward silhouettes ready for wear and tear or wear out and about.
