About us

Our company

We are one of the world’s largest vertically integrated manufacturers of everyday basic apparel. Our founding business model of owning and operating the factories that produce the majority of our products sets us apart from most global apparel brands. This direct control over almost the entire manufacturing process – from raw materials to finished products – allows us to deploy responsible and sustainable practices in our supply chain.

Our focus has always been to produce timeless apparel while never compromising our beliefs that operating responsibly, taking care of our people, and integrating sustainable solutions are key factors in our success and future growth.
