We are redefining transparency and human responsibility by supporting family farms, localized manufacturing, living wages and GMO-free, organic ingredients. We empower human beings through fair-trade, fair conditions and fair treatment across our entire supply chain, and by providing full transparency to our customers. We operate our own factory to ensure that we are able to follow through with our claims. We are the future of our industry and we are here now to create a demand for our values and would rather go out of business than compromise.

We are the Factory.

Our Factory

We manufacture in our own California factory to ensure our standards and values are fully executed. Vertically-integrated, local, and traceable production maximizes quality, efficiency, and employee pay, and minimizes redundancy, waste, and our carbon footprint. To date we’ve manufactured over 2 million local and responsibly-made garments.

Carbon Footprint

Our products are manufactured in one place, limiting our carbon footprint to just a fraction of a typical shirt.

Reducing Waste

Our supply-chain reduces waste and limits redundancy by cutting out middle-men and emphasizing recyclability & efficient design.

Local Economy

We’ve created over 70 full-time jobs and over 98% of our purchasing is from Los Angeles based vendors.

Fair Wages

Our manufacturing personnel earn well above California minimum wage on average.

Supply & Demand

Every step of our design process is done in-house, from initial storyboarding through patternmaking and marker-making. We can design and deliver products from concept to shipment in 2 weeks.

Fresh Ingredients.

Growing cotton in USA produces higher quality of cotton due to the soil quality and ecosystems we have in the states. This also translates into closer relationships with the family farms and fair treatment and fair wages for them. These farms can be found in all parts of America including Texas, California and the Carolinas.

Recycling plastic decreases our dependence on oil as a raw material and curbs the amount of trash being dumped, prolonging landfill life. Reducing toxic emissions from incinerators lessens the advance of global warming.

Eucalyptus (lyocell) is made with wood pulp from responsibly-sourced tree farms that grow on low- grade land unusable for food production. Recycling

Recycled Plastic fabric is a reconstituted 100% Post-consumer yarn that requires only “waste” cotton and plastic for its creation. This feedstock is sourced from the garbage that individuals routinely discard, either in a waste receptacle or a dump.

Hemp is an extremely fast growing and renewable crop, producing more fiber yield per acre than any other source. It is naturally pest resistant, can grow almost anywhere, and requires a fraction of the amount of water it takes to grow cotton.

Linen comes from the flax plant, which is one of the oldest crops used by mankind to make clothing, and the process for turning this plant into fabric hasn’t changed much throughout history. Flax also uses a fraction of the water that cotton uses to grow, and is naturally pest resistant.

From Seed to Skin, we are committed to developing awareness of all lifecycle stages of our fabrics and garments, starting with the harvest cycle from plant to cultivation of the root ingredients that our fabrics derive form all the way through the home-sewn production of our finished garments and distribution to our end customers.

With over five years of research, we have yet to find a certification that encompasses all of our values. So we started our own. Focusing on human empowerment, organic and recycled ingredients, and local, fair, and responsible manufacturing, our “Seed to Skin” certification is the first of its kind and represents a new standard for the apparel industry.
