We're not a typical brand. Because of our philosophy of only using only what already exists, we take a very different approach to design from other manufacturers. In order to discover materials in need of rescue, we work with a global product-sourcing network to find, recover, and develop products.
Our design process is unique; as opposed to starting with a blank slate, we start with the materials. Employing factories that employ fair labor practices, we aim to create timeless, useful and functional products capable of providing years of service.
