Re-thinking the Industry

We're taking advantage of new technology to rebuild from the ground up as we bring together traditional craftsmanship with 21st century services. Our new industrial scenarios rely on customer-driven production as we apply innovative methods, materials, and tools. Our business models allow for keeping design and production local. We focus on diversity and excellence in niche markets.

Building a Business Ecosystem

We work with artisans and factories, design schools and fablabs, app designers and machinery manufacturers. We focus on re-inventing our businesses as we explore new roles and opportunities. We seek to imbue the clothes we wear with ethical principles, environmental concern, and the dignity of work.
