1. We Are Passionate About
Doing Things Differently
We are contrarians, deeply focused on sustainability and efficiency in order to advance the interests of our customers, our workers, our shareholders, the community, and the world.
2. Living Wages
We strive to pay our workers a living wage and we support the fight for $15 an hour.
3. Employee Ownership
Our workers will own equity in our company making us employee owned.
4. A Commitment to Create Jobs
We intend to employ thousands of workers in the Los Angeles area and become the leading player in U.S. clothing manufacturing. We believe in local manufacturing from an efficiency and an ethical point of view.
5. Vertically Integrated
We rarely subcontract cutting and sewing so that we can control quality. This is part of our commitment to our customers. This also helps develop the lives and enhance the lives and skill level of our workers.
6. We Support Domestic Farmers and The Domestic Yarn Industry
We strive to buy textile and yarn products made in the United States to support domestic manufacturing. Over half of our yarn consumption will be derived from domestic sources. A strong domestic industry is good for our company’s financial viability in the long run. It helps us serve the interests of our customers, is good for the health of the domestic and continental manufacturing base, and ultimately is good for the environment by reducing the impact of our supply chain’s carbon footprint.
