Beach clothing store Faherty opens in Mosaic District

The Mosaic District — which also includes a splash pad and several parks – is also now home to a new clothing store (staff photo by Angela Woolsey).

A new clothing store focused on “sustainability” and social impact has opened in the Mosaic District.

Faherty opened its newest store over the weekend at 2905 District Ave. It was first announced in early 2023. This is the company’s third location in the D.C. area, including stores in Bethesda and Georgetown.

Faherty is known for its beach aesthetic along with the mission of being sustainable by “using recycled and renewable fabrics.”

The company also aims to have a social impact, particularly by acknowledging that the brand sells items with patterns inspired by indigenous Native Americans. The company says now it has a “mission as a brand to model a mutually beneficial relationship between Native artists and non-Native companies for collective healing.”

The Fairfax location’s webpage notes that the store sits on Nacotchtank, Piscataway, and Pamunkey lands.

Mosaic District has seen a slew of openings in recent weeks. Last month, Pottery Barn opened while, in July, Latin wine bar Grand Cata started serving. Jewelry store Brilliant Earth also opened earlier this year as well.

Arlington-based ice cream shop Mimi’s Handmade is set to begin scooping soon too.
