Los Angeles Apparel only uses environmentally friendly, organic, recycled and/or reclaimed cotton, recycling 100% of their manufacturing waste. They are passionate about doing things differently in the manufacturing and production process and they control this process from start to finish.
“We buy textile and yarn products made in the United States to support our domestic manufacturing,” affirms Charney. “Over half of our yarn consumption is derived from domestic sources. A strong domestic farmer and yarn industry is good for our company’s financial viability in the long run. It also helps us serve the interests of our customers, is good for the health of the domestic and continental manufacturing base, and is ultimately good for the environment by reducing the impact of our supply chain’s carbon footprint.”
