In 2020, Fashion Designer, Sergio Guadarrama approached us to start a garment factory based on ethical labor practices. We took on the challenge. In hiring a retired seamstress and pulling together some old sewing machines, we moved into an old barn. On day one of launching, we had our first client. After about six months, we moved into a properly insulated space, got a professional cutting table, and additional machines. Ever since then, it’s been a steady stream of growth as the demand for domestic manufacturing is on the rise.
