Alexx jae & milk is a contemporary eco line based in Los Angeles. Founded by environmentalists and childhood friends Alexx Jae monkarsh and Bari milken Bernstein, alexx jae & milk aims to create modern, effortless pieces with minimum impact on the environment. Everything is made in Los Angeles to eliminate carbon footprint and waste and all fabrics are sourced locally: cotton and knits are made from excess garments that are going to be discarded, leather pieces are made from recycled shoes and faux fur pieces are made from recycled bottle caps. 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. in 2009, Alexx and Bari line came to fruition, enabling them to spread the message that it’s possible to have the freedom to look good while remembering to take care of our earth. Alexx jae & milk developed a celebrity following early on, with notable eco-conscious women, such as Amy Smart, Emmanuelle Chriqui, and Jamie-Lynn Sigler, becoming instant fans of the line.
