We believe women should feel beautiful and comfortable, always. We create products with passion and integrity, guided by respect for our people and planet.
Three months after getting married, Karen and her husband, Lonnie, decided to start their own company. Driven by a passion to do things differently, they started small: their home garage was also their first office, studio, and warehouse all rolled into one. The vision was simple: clothing with an incredible fit and feeling, crafted from the best fabrics and techniques available. Their idea caught on; and in the years since, their family and company have grown. What was once a husband-and-wife team is now a full family affair: Lonnie and Karen’s two sons, Michael and Robert recently joined the brand. With their arrival, the brand has renewed its promise for constant innovation with improved sustainability, increased recycling, and state-of-the-art fabrications. Like all great things, Karen’s original vision has evolved and changed with time, but her initial promise has never wavered.
Our commitment is simple: to use the finest materials and fabric available. We work with our mills and partners to ensure they minimize environmental impact and are transparent with workplace conditions.
A TRANSPARENT TEAM
Over 70% of our management team consists of women and three-quarters of our employees are people from underrepresented populations. All of our hourly workers are paid more than minimum wage, and most are paid above Los Angeles’ living wage threshold. We provide complete health benefits to all full-time employees, including our manufacturing team. Additionally, we promote healthy living year-round with on-going employee educational programs to improve nutrition, mental health, exercise, and support stress reduction.
Karen and Lonnie Kane are proud supporters of The Nature Conservancy, Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, Shelter Partnership, Inner-City Arts Los Angeles, Cedars Sinai, City of Hope, The Rape Foundation, Assistance League of Los Angeles, Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital Foundation, Aviva Family & Children’s Services, the Los Angeles Mission, and Cast: Coalition to Abolish Slavery & Trafficking.
