Our Base Apparel
Ethical treatment of all people is something we have been advocates of since the first day of business. Our base apparel all come from Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production (WRAP) certified factories.
WRAP is a globally recognized, independent third party certifying body whose mission is to promote ethical, humane, and lawful conditions and practices in all manufacturing facilities.
Companies accepted into the WRAP organization go through an extensive application process in which manufacturing facilities, working environments, and workers’ rights are inspected and approved by the WRAP association. WRAP certifications are awarded based upon both internationally and nationally accepted humane workplace standards, local laws, and ethical manufacturing regulations.
Our apparel is screen printed by the artist at a public print shop in Los Angeles, CA. Here's a quick little timelapse of owner/founder Leslie Kim screen printing a batch of our Resilience tees. When we need help with larger screen printing projects, we hire from within the climbing community or support local artists and artisans.
A few of our items are Direct-to-Garment printed at a facility outside of our location. We have chosen this method to make certain items more accessible outside of the US, and to help reduce waste.
