The ability to trace the creation of apparel through each individual step. This provides radical transparency of the supply chain to consumers allowing less room for people to be exploited in the process.

We want to create high quality pieces and utilize an ethical supply chain to do so. Which is why we are offering traceability of our products and transparency into our processes.
