Founded in 2012 by designer, John Elliott, this brand produces all of its garments in Los Angeles with the best raw materials and fabrics. From just eight years old, Elliott had already displayed a passion for design, sending letters to the likes of Nike with corrections for their designs, as well as his own creations. The designer himself proclaims that the Oregan based brand's kind response was and continues to be a source of inspiration for him.

During the first few years of the brand, Elliott reflected on what he wanted to do, and it was from there he began his journey using just three fabrics: selvedge denim from Japan, English jersey fabric, and French terrycloth.

This basic and narrow selection of materials were not chosen without reason, they were due to Elliott's obsession with what he dubs as "prision innovations".  Why? The designer stands firmly on prisoner's abilities to create what they need with limited tools and resources; such as weapons, microwaves, tattoo guns, and even mobile phones. So from the prisons to the runways, Elliott's philosophy was formed: create only what was needed.
