Dedicated to Workers, Ecology, Ideas
That means championing fair wages, eliminating waste from the manufacturing cycle and pushing boundaries in textile sustainability, and collaborating with creative minds to make enjoyable clothing.
We know about the art of manufacturing and have deep respect for the skilled people that make it happen. From day one, we’ve been hands-on with our partner factories and choose to only do business with those who have ethical practices, do great work, with workers earning above the Los Angeles minimum wage.
Earth’s resources are precious and fashion can be dirty. As manufacturers we do our best to do the right thing, at every step. From inventing a fabric made from 100% Recycled Cotton to continuing to develop new materials with the goal to build the best basics line in the world—from trash.
Our collections are designed by everyday extraordinary people like chefs, chess players, architects, and retirees. What they have in common is a great eye, but it’s their unique point of view on what makes something indispensable that we’re tapping into. We bring their concepts to life, then share the profits with them.
