We are committed to sustainable practices ♻️ 🇺🇸
Recycled materials + US manufacturing + Responsible Supply Chain =
Reduced Environmental Impact
Our commitment toward sustainability is uncompromised. We commit to reducing our environmental impact while increasing our social impact. As a small, independent company we are able to control every aspect of our business from manufacturing & supply chain, to our involvement in community. Many steps are taken to bring our high quality products to the marketplace, and we proudly complete as much of the process as we can right here in the USA using responsibly sourced materials.
RECYCLED MATERIALS ♻️
We strive to use recycled materials that allow us to divert waste from landfills, and consequently reduce pollution and energy consumption.
- BLUESIGN™️ Certified Fabrics
- Packaging & hang tags: made in the USA from recycled paper
BUILT BY HAND IN ST. PAUL, MINNESOTA 🇺🇸
All of our product design as well as the cut & sew process have been done together with our partner in St Paul, Minnesota since day one. Other things we source domestically include:
- Trim sourcing: snaps, zippers, thread, labels
- Product testing
BUILT BY HAND IN RIFLE, COLORADO 🇺🇸
No act is too small when it comes to protecting the environment, so we repurpose our fabric scraps into accessories like our Goggle Bags and Harlan Headbands. These items are made by hand by Garco Sewing Works in Rifle, Colorado, where women coming off of government assistance are taught a valuable trade, like sewing. This is another way to create jobs, reduce our environmental impact and to create functional and lasting designs.
