Proudly Made in Guatemala
Each of our products is proudly made in our own factory in Guatemala by some of the world's finest craftsmen. We are one of the very few clothing brands to actually manufacture ALL of its own garments. Most have teams that travel the globe, sourcing their production to the lowest bidder - but we value loyalty and relationships.
Our fabrics are cut by hand and sewn to exacting standards. Sure, we use modern tools and advanced machinery, but we apply the same methods of precise workmanship that trace back a hundred years. This combination of proven skill and thoughtful innovation allows for the highest quality and reliable consistency.
We take pride in our work and our dedication to quality, and we work hard to bring you the very best. But we believe that some things are not for sale, like the trust and dignity of our family of craftsmen.
Of course you know that many consumer products come from all over the world. But have you ever noticed that sometimes you will buy a shirt that was made in Sri Lanka or China, and the next shirt you get - from the same brand - might be made in Bangladesh or Vietnam? Nothing against the hard-working people in those countries. In fact, our concern is quite the opposite ... What happened to the people who were working in the original factory when their company dropped them for another place with cheaper labor? What happened to their families? And what will happen to these families when profit once again takes priority over loyalty and respect?
Our Guatemalan factory has been in continuous operation since our company's founding more than twenty years ago, and we are here to stay. When we make a promise, we keep it. And our entire family of master craftsmen understands that promise and our commitment to each other. Our fellow team members have security and confidence in knowing that our company absolutely will not abandon them when a cheaper opportunity is presented.
We care about the lives and the families of our Guatemalan craftsmen, and we strive to have a positive impact in their community. Not only does our team earn competitive wages, paid vacations, and annual bonuses, but we also host an annual Family Day (also paid) where we charter buses, rent an entire park, and provide catered food.
As part of our ongoing commitment, we work with industry-leading independent auditors to evaluate our Guatemalan facility, ensuring that we meet or exceed all current Social Compliance standards.
We're proud of who we are. We're proud of what we do. We're proud to be Made in Guatemala.
