Culture 

We believe a company doesn't have culture - A company is a culture.

We as a team operate with complete transparency behind the scenes with our design team, fabric mills and garment factories. This allows us to demonstrate a level of commitment to sustainability , ethical production standards and consistent quality.

We believe in the valuable importance of feedback from each member of our team and each customer. 

We are driven each day to deliver the world's best fabrics, construction methods and innovation to constantly evolve. 

 

Sustainability and Being Responsible 

There is a great deal of talk today about sustainability and being environmentally friendly. Some companies are truly doing it and some are just smoke and mirrors.

It's incredibly difficult to achieve all sustainability principles on every level operation and in your products . At some level, something can get compromised whether it's in shipping or how a factory is powered. 

Our position on sustainability is based on the following:

Domestic production where possible.

Global manufacturing partners with ethical standards.

Quality products that are built to last.

Timeless designs.

Organic and recycled fabrics.

Bluesign certified fabrics. 

We believe products that are truly built to last and timeless in design keep products out of landfills. 

 

Vendor relationships 

We believe in doing as much business as we can with as few vendors as possible. The result is trust and mutual commitment as these partners are one of the main keys to our ability to deliver consistent quality and sustainability. 

We have personal relationships with each factory and mill owner and take the time to get to know each person. Our common goal is for each person in a factory to handle each piece of fr. product as if it were their own. 

We are all driven by a shared belief for sustainability and ethical standards and each vendor is truly a partner in our company and vice versa. 

 

Design 

Simplicity and versatility using sustainable long lasting fabrics and construction is the driving force behind our design philosophy. 

 

Our Core Values.

Ethical business practices.

Simplicity in all aspects of how we do business and design product.

Build long lasting product with a defined purpose and timeless design.

Do more business with less vendors to build mutual trust. Treat each vendor and member of our supply chain with respect. 

Be responsible with every decision we make to reduce impact on the planet.

Transparency and open communication with all people who are our customers, in our company and in our valued supply chain.
