American manufacturing has been on the decline since the 1970’s. Many companies have found it simply cheaper and easier to get stuff made in countries like China and India. That is 100% true. It is much cheaper and much easier to make products over seas. However, we have chosen to have our product line manufactured right here in Los Angeles.
Making our product in L.A. has allowed us to pay incredible attention to detail every step of the way. We are fortunate enough to partner with some of the most skilled makers L.A. has to offer. With over 40 years working with materials like leather and denim; these skilled craftsmen have contributed so much to the quality of each piece. We are meeting with our manufacturers directly every week to review fit, construction and fabrics.
Sourcing our materials in the U.S.A. had given us the opportunity to knit and weave our own fabrics to ensure they are perfect for each style. In addition to being closer to the process as a whole; we are proud to support independent businesses in our home state and home country.
Making products in L.A. supports the local economies and also eliminates wasteful shipping back and forth across the globe. On any given Monday our cars are filled with rolls of fabrics, boxes of zippers and finished samples being toted from place to place. We have our hands in every step along the way and we are proud to produce quality products out of the U.S.A.
