To Protect Wild, Forever

We don’t need to tell you just how wasteful the clothing industry is. Traditional methods of agriculture and manufacturing require stunning amounts of water and energy, and that’s to say nothing of the culture of disposability that permeates the world of so-called “fast fashion.” Taylor Stitch was built upon a belief that this industry can—and should—be different, and we’ve organized our efforts around Five Pillars of Responsibility to help us stay the course.

Sourcing Responsibly

You can’t build great clothing without great materials, so we source organic, recycled, or otherwise sustainable components for all of our gear.

The factories and craftspeople with whom we collaborate share our commitment to building great products without sacrificing the environment.

Closing the Loop

We don’t want our gear to end up in a landfill, and programs like Restitch ensure that each piece we build has a long, fruitful life.

Creating a Community

We’re incredibly proud to be part of a community that cares about—and works hard to protect—the health of the planet.

Giving Back

From collaborations to donations to fundraiser events, it’s an honor and a privilege to use our platform to support causes that make a difference in people’s lives.

1. Sourcing Responsibly

It all starts with fibers and fabrics, so we work hard to source materials that meet our expectations without harming animals or relying on harmful chemicals and cultivation practices. If we can’t find what we’re looking for, we develop it ourselves.

100% Cruelty Free

We love our animal friends, so we always opt for better ethical practices when developing animal-based products—byproduct-sourced leathers, non-mulesed wools, recycled down insulation, and more.

The Workshop

Our crowdfunding platform, The Workshop, saves customers money and eliminates waste from our supply chain by preventing overproduction—all for the good of the planet.

Our Factories

In addition to our partners around the world, we operate our own factory—Hubo—which employs eighty sewing machine operators, pays living wages, and offers healthcare and benefits including maternity leave. Take a tour of Hubo and the other factories that help us execute our vision:

Packaging

Conventional packaging is absurdly wasteful, so we use 100% post-consumer recycled fibers for our recyclable mailers. By the end of 2021, we’ll have transitioned to more than 80% recycled poly bags, tags, labels, etc.

Stacks of olive green fabrics are arranged and labeled with white notecards bearing handwritten red numbers.

Certifications

Many of our products and partners have been recognized and certified by industry leaders like the Leather Working Group, Fair Trade Apparel, Schoeller Textiles AG, and more.

Responsibly Built For the Long Haul

We’re committed to building products that outlast the competition (it’s right there in our motto), and that all starts with rugged construction and durable components.

Long Haul Guarantee

Bumps and bruises are a part of life. Should they befall your TS gear, no worries—we’ll repair or replace damaged/defective pieces for the life of the product. That’s a guarantee.

Built To Wear In, Not Out

We pride ourselves on classic, trend-proof designs that’ll look just as great in fifty years as they do today. In other words, TS is timeless.

Many cuts of leather in various textures and shades of brown are suspended in the air.

Deadstock

Fabrics shouldn’t be left to rot in a warehouse, so we work with our factory partners to recover and reuse (or donate) deadstock fabrics.

2.4K products built with recycled deadstock materials.

Restitch

Our Restitch program lets customers exchange well-loved—or completely thrashed—gear for credit. After repairs, we find these pieces new homes, and the cycle continues.

4.3K products saved from the scrap heap with the Restitch program.

Repair

A loose thread or worn-down sole is no reason to give up on your gear; we’re passionate about providing our customers with the tools they need to bring their favorite pieces back to life, including tutorials and free in-store repairs.

A Look at the Numbers

There’s still much to be done, but thanks to our material innovations and streamlined supply chain, we’ve taken a serious chunk out of the industry’s water usage.

8.4 Gallons of water saved from using 100% organic denim

7.9 Gallons of water saved from using recycled fabric in our heavy bag tee

3,3.6 Gallons of water saved From switching to 100% organic woven shirting

Our Footprint

We’re working hard each and every day to reduce our carbon footprint, and we’ve teamed up with Flexport and Shopify to offset emissions resulting from both shipments to customers and trans-Pacific freight from our factories.

We automatically offset carbon based on the distance between our warehouse and a customer’s doorstep—currently, this program benefits the Jari Pará area of the Amazon rainforest.

The journey from fiber to finished piece is a long one. We work with Flexport to track and offset carbon emissions resulting from global materials shipping during manufacturing.

8,679 Kilograms of customer shipment carbon offsets

373,.73 Tons of factory shipment carbon offsets

4. Creating A Community

We couldn’t have gotten to where we are today without the support of our friends, families, and fans. They inspire us, yes, but they also hold us accountable, and we’re incredibly proud to be a part of a community that cares about the health of our planet.

We Hear You

Customer feedback is one of the key ways we reduce supply chain waste, and there are many avenues (including our subreddit, fabric votes, and surveys) for fans to make their voices heard.

#StandSmall

COVID took a heavy toll on small businesses, so our #StandSmall campaign was all about showcasing the mom ’n’ pop spots that make our communities unique.

Family & Friends

Periodically, we highlight people who share our commitment to Responsibility on our on-site blog, The Journal—if you’re out there saving some corner of the world, we want to hear about it.

Partners in Responsibility

Over the years, we’ve partnered with some incredible brands, artists and craftspeople who share our commitment to Responsibility.

Press

If you work hard enough at something, people are bound to take notice. Here’s what the press has to say about Taylor Stitch’s commitment to Responsibility.

5. Giving Back

We know how lucky we are to have made it this far, and it’s an honor to lend our support to causes and campaigns that make a difference in people’s lives. Giveaways, partnerships, donations—we’re always on the lookout for opportunities to help, so if there’s a cause we should know about, reach out.

Despite our best efforts to completely eliminate waste, we do occasionally end up with excess fabric—we donate our leftovers to educational and community organizations.

We’ve donated to a long list of incredible local and national organizations, including—
