Made in L.A.
Why We’re Made in L.A.
A quality garment requires ethical production.
It is about the garment and the conditions of the people who make them — both are difficult to monitor when companies produce on the other side of the world.
The same atelier in downtown Los Angeles manufactures our samples and production garments.
Having a U.S-based, streamlined manufacturing process gives us precise control over the quality of everything we produce.
Better quality benefits our customers.
Domestic manufacturing benefits all Americans.
THE ECONOMICS OF DOMESTIC PRODUCTION
The brand’s founder is an economist originally from North Carolina. She understands the impact of offshoring on a local economy and wanted to do her part to bring manufacturing back to the U.S. when launching Senza Tempo.
California is one of the most progressive states when it comes to regulations protecting workers and fair wages. The minimum wage is over $15.00 per hour and Los Angeles County mandates that the minimum wage be set to a living wage. In China, apparel workers make less than $3.00 per hour or Bangladesh, the minimum wage is roughly $63.00 per month.
