According to the World Bank, the COVID-19 could push 150 million people into extreme poverty by the end of 2021. In an attempt to actively support our friends against the damaging effects of the pandemic, we decided to partner up with two local organizations that aid & care for the members of the community, Food Bank For NYC & One Warm Coat. Our goal is to provide the friends from our community with the basic necessities of life through proceeds from our upcoming collections
We are a mission-driven brand with the goal of increasing awareness surrounding different issues that are plaguing society by partnering with leading non-profit organizations that are tackling important causes, such as gun reform, climate change, social inequality and societal injustices. We tell the stories of these causes through the products we design and the different partnerships we form. It’s our belief that real and tangible change is created when people stand together, accept one another and support each other.
