What’s on your label?

A great thing is happening among American shoppers.  Believe it or not, more people are taking a moment to flip over a label and ask, is it “Made in the USA”. It’s often less costly to make things in developing countries due to lower manufacturing costs.  However, when we were steered to offshore production of our clothing line, we saw a huge contradiction.  We decided to do some digging because we wanted to make the right decision, that would ultimately align with our mission to empower, inspire and impact lives. The word on the street is that if you want a lower price you have to go overseas and if you want “quality”, you produce in the U.S.A. However, we have found that the quality of your product is an issue that requires constant vigilance no matter where you choose to manufacture. That being said, having production in the USA means shipping costs are slashed, and quicker turnarounds to the customer are possible. It’s also somewhat easier to monitor your factory when it’s here in the U.S.A.  We take pride in the fact that our products are “Made in America”, and in the end we believe customers will appreciate that.

An Ethical Fashion Approach

In 2013 Limitless La Vie Corp started on a journey to positively impact countless lives. We dedicated ourselves to impacting our community. Our passion was borne out of the sudden and tragic loss of a family friend whose life was lost to senseless violence. We initially printed t-shirts as a way to celebrate our friend’s short life. Little did we know our vintage logo t-shirt would be received so well. Our grief was replaced by gratitude, a thankful awareness that we now had an opportunity to really make an impact in the lives of others. Our possibilities were limitless! We decided we should investigate the fashion industry as a means of income for our non-profit. As we researched aspects of the fashion industry, we stumbled upon some rather harsh statistics about the carbon footprint of the fashion industry. We decided if we were going to do this, that we should take an ethical approach.
