As Indigenous people, it is our responsibility to protect and preserve mother earth; the land, and the natural environment. Our brand upholds this responsibility in a few ways:
- We use eco-friendly inks that do far less harm to the environment than traditional inks, these inks cost more but we are committed to sustainability.
- We employ a print-to-order method, this means we only order a set amount of blank inventory, and we ONLY print/decorate the garments when an order is placed. This prevents excess inventory. (57% of all discarded clothing ends up in a landfill, our process minimizes our contribution to this factor)
- We recycle as many materials as possible during the print production process to reduce the amount of waste we create.
- We source all of our blank garments from suppliers that follow strict sustainability guidelines. (i.e reduced water usage, eco-friendly dyes, fair-trade cotton and fair wage standards, etc)
We continue to strive for more ways we can minimize our impact on mother earth, and bring you a product you can be proud to wear.

IT TAKES *APPROXIMATELY 2700L OF WATER TO PRODUCE A SINGLE T-SHIRT
Our company ONLY works with sustainable suppliers that actively strive to dramatically reduce the amount of water waste produced by their garment manufacturing process.
By using newer, more efficient machines, our suppliers use 7x less water than the average for clothing manufacturers, saving *approximately 109,000,000 L (109M Liters) per week. Also, any water they do use goes through a filtration system that allows it to be recycled.
