Tammy Hulva is a Bay Area eco-fashion pioneer, independent clothing designer, and retailer representing San Francisco-based artists and designers. Tammy has been a leader in the San Francisco clothing industry for over twenty years.
After finishing her education in fashion merchandising and business, Tammy began her career working with many of the earliest eco-friendly fashion companies, overseeing design, development, and production. This theme of striving for fashion produced in harmony with culture and the environment led to Tammy's role leading production and design at Wildlife Works. Wildlife Works brought alternative employment to third world communities as an alternative to traditional environmentally destructive lifestyles, with the ultimate goal of conserving biodiversity in East Africa. At Wildlife Works, Tammy assisted in developing an eco-clothing factory on the edge of a Kenyan wildlife preserve that employed the local community in fashion production rather than the alternative of poaching or deforestation, thus helping protect the region's exceptionally bio-diverse natural habitat.
Tammy is the founder and director of Tammy Design, an independent eco-fashion company. Tammy Design is dedicated to the use of eco-friendly textiles and fur alternatives. Tammy also started Wild Feather, a San Francisco based clothing boutique that showcases local, independent San Francisco designers. Beyond owning her own clothing line and local retail store, Tammy actively collaborates with fellow entrepreneurs and small business owners in the fashion and art community by serving as a regular host of retail events, fashion shows, and community networking activities.
