Who We Are
Our story is simple, we saw the problem in the fashion industry and we decided to move away from the problem while creating solutions. We are a family run company based in Orange County, CA. Our story might start in California but ends with our customers who are all over the world.
When our founder/CEO, Vik, was visiting India he saw the plight of the farmers and factory workers and he knew he had to do something to help them. Devastating stories about human rights violations in garment factories around the world like the Rana Plaza disaster and cotton farm slavery and child labor violations are on the rise, which drove Vik and his family to create a sustainable solution.
But why do we do this? What is the point of working so hard to ensure that our workers and local environment are treated well? Why do we want to make sure our workers are receiving additional wages and benefits that are higher than our competitors’?
The answer is simple: Because we care about the people who make our products, the planet that produces them, and the consumers who help make our business sustainable.
