We’re not perfect, but we’re always striving to be better. Our production values have always been at the heart of what we do. Here are a few of the things we believe in.
Although not often talked about, one of the greatest pollutants associated with apparel manufacturing is transportation. Did you realize one large container ship emits more pollutants than 50 million cars? Multiply that by the 90,000 container ships on our oceans currently and, well, you get the picture. When we produce in the USA, not only are we avoiding the environmental impact of transporting goods across the sea, we’re also investing in our local communities. While it’s not possible to make everything we do in the US at this time, we will continue to strive to produce locally, while thinking globally.
Built to Last
We believe in owning fewer, quality things and making them last a long time. But if you’re as hard on your gear as we are, we know that sometimes stitches bust and buttons break. That’s why if any of our product ever breaks down, you can send it back to us and we’ll repair it. Not only are we reducing our footprint on the planet, we’re learning how our products succeed out in the wild, which helps us build better product in the future.
We are the opposite of fast fashion. If you’re going to own a piece of clothing for a long time, it had better continue to be relevant in your wardrobe. By taking a thoughtful approach to the entire lifecycle of our products, from design through production through use and the potential to reuse, we hope to provide the confidence to make the upfront investment in something that you will continue to want to wear for years to come.
We're a small company, and it’s not always easy, but we will always seek the most socially responsible manufacturing options available and manufacturing techniques that cause the least environmental impact.
