At a massive garment factory in downtown Los Angeles, more than 6,000 industrial and textile employees work in rhythm with whirring machinery to design, knit, cut, dye, and sew the stylish and well-fitting fashion basics carried in all American Apparel stores across the globe. Unlike many fashion retailers that subcontract manufacturing to overseas factories with questionable labor conditions, American Apparel adheres to a socially responsible production model by making jobs available for individuals in the LA community. In keeping production within a 30-mile radius, the T-shirt and sundress designers also eliminate unnecessary and wasteful factors such as shipping fuel and packing materials. Check out the company's website to tour the American Apparel factory in a way that would make Mr. Rogers proud.
The iconic fashion label American Apparel is known for adorning stylish customers with classic fashion basics. It's also known for edgy advertisements that display natural, unretouched beauty.
But what many don't know about the brand is that it's an American company in every sense. Everything from sewing and cutting to accounting and marketing happens in downtown Los Angeles or within a 30-mile radius. Not only that, every T-shirt, bodysuit, and pair of leggings is made in a sweatshop-free environment by workers who earn a fair wage.
Plus, keeping everything in house means the company eliminates unnecessary and wasteful factors, such as shipping fuel and packing materials, as well as provides jobs to Angelenos, instead of outsourcing them.
