About Us

nature meets silk


At Aurora Sage our pieces are naturally hand-dyed with organic materials born from the earth. They are natural, non-toxic, hand washable, and one of a kind; it’s elevated fashion. In fact, we celebrate the imperfections the natural dye process creates. Just like the most beautiful things in nature, our pieces are perfectly imperfect.

Try them on for yourself, you’ll never want to leave...

Mission Statement

elevated purpose

We at Aurora Sage strive to create fashion that is better for the body, for the industry and for the planet.
Good for the body. We believe in creating elevated high fashion that is nourishing for the body and the soul. If you look good, you feel good, and if you feel good then you can do more good in the world.

We use plants born from the earth that naturally have their own healing properties. It is said that you are what you eat, but at at Aurora Sage we believe that it’s also what you wear that can make you feel beautiful on the inside and out.

Silk is our go to fabric for our pieces. It looks stunning and it is great for your hair and skin. The word on the street is that it is also a natural EMF (Electromagnetic Field) protector.

Our goal is to empower other individuals to feel these benefits of wearing our pieces and translate that energy out into the world.

Good for the industry. Our Process is about Quality, Ethical Practices, Sustainability and Eco Friendliness. Our hope is to influence the fashion industry in a positive way by showing that high fashion can be both non-toxic and luxurious.

If we can all make incremental changes in our behaviors toward fashion, we believe it will reflect to those who buy it.

Because of this, we pay very close attention in the sourcing of our production to make sure we follow the most ethical practices possible. We source our silk intentionally where there are child labor laws in place prohibiting unethical practices.

Stephanie works with our pattern maker to design the Aurora Sage styles. We have a sewing team in downtown Los Angeles that we visit on a weekly basis, bringing our designs to life. Once the undyed silks are in our hands, Stephanie brings the silks to life, from the Aurora Sage studio.

Good for the planet. We keep our processes clean without chemicals in order to care for people and the planet. Our garments are washed in cold water and hung to dry to reduce our energy consumption and be conscious of our footprint.

Fashion is arguably one of the leading polluters in the world.

Nearly three-fifths of all clothing ends up in incinerators or landfills within a year of being produced.1

More than 8 percent of global greenhouse-gas emissions are produced by the apparel and footwear industries.2

Some 72 toxic chemicals have been identified in water solely from textile dyeing, 30 of which cannot be removed.3

Together we believe we can change these statistics. As Stephanie always has said, “One day there will be a world where all clothing dyes are natural and non toxic.”

Aurora Sage is an ode to mother nature. All our pieces are inspired by and created with her in mind.

Meet The Designer

how we began

Stephanie Carollo is the designer, dyer, founder, and CEO at Aurora Sage.

Aurora Sage began with a thought in the middle of the night when Stephanie was breastfeeding her second son. Created with the intention of wearing a comfortable piece that would elicit confidence postpartum, and be safe for her and her newborn’s skin.

Her first piece, a silk duster, was inspired by an epic california sunset. As she began to dye, she noticed the toxic smell and felt there had to be a natural way to create the desired color effect. It wasn’t long after, she began spending time learning the ancient art of natural dyeing.

With a nutrition background, Stephanie prefers to eat, use products, and wear things from as close to the earth as possible. It was only natural that her next venture brought her to the fashion industry. She has always believed that fashion shouldn’t be sacrificed for health, or health for fashion.

Stephanie is endlessly inspired by women who exude confidence and stand in their power; the cosmos, ancient cultures and Mother Nature are also her forever muses. The silk pieces are made to invoke these powerful qualities in every person. Each piece she creates aim to embody that empowered energy.

Every piece is dyed by hand in her studio with mantras playing subtly in the background. As a former trained dancer, music plays a large part of the creative process and moves her through the dance of dyeing. Back to Top

Q & A

get to know us

What’s the story behind the name?

The name Aurora Sage came when some of the silk Stephanie was dyeing looked like the Aurora Borealis. Sage represents the plants used in her creations. Aurora Sage was also the name Stephanie had picked out for her second child, which turned out to be a boy, so it wasn't used. Little did she know she would use the name and give birth to something else, after all!

Why Made to Order and how does it work?

Made to order guarantees each customer gets the size and colorway they desire. It also reduces waste and is better for the planet. Each piece is made and dyed to order and can take up to 6 weeks, but we always try our best to make sooner. Each piece has unique markings and may vary slightly in color.

Where do you source your dyes?

In order to ensure the best quality we source our natural dyes from different resources. For example we get our pomegranate from a source in Vancouver, charcoal from New York, and grapeskin from Australia. Stephanie also has a garden at her studio, where she often sources live flowers and plants to use in her creations.

How do I care for silk?

All our silks are designed to be easy to care for. There is no need for dry cleaning. Our silks are hand washable and can be easily ironed. Visit our Fabric Care page to learn more.

What do I do if I've noticed color changes?

As we have said, embrace the color changes of your garment. Certain dyes are reactive to changes in PH. If you have more questions please send an email to and we can make a suggestion based on your specific colorway. You can also visit our Fabric Care page for more details on how to care for your garment.
