We are driven by three seemingly simple ideas: Take care of people, make great products, & do so in a way that minimizes the impact to our planet.


We value the people on our team as well as the people within our community. By making our products in the same place we live, we create and sustain living wage jobs right here in Detroit.  For every garment sold, we donate an essentials kit to someone experiencing homelessness as a way to give back to the community that brought us up.  As a team, we volunteer one Saturday each month, contributing more than $109,000 worth of these kits to the homeless in our city.  Learn more about our mission here.



We use the finest fabrics that we can get our hands on and manufacture our products in our own factory in Detroit, MI.  This means that we control all aspects of design and quality, holding each garment to the highest standards.  Each and every garment we develop undergoes rigorous fit testing, wash testing, and wear testing to make sure it's ready for whatever you throw at it. Our elevated basics immediately will become staple pieces within your closet. 



On your journey toward a more sustainable lifestyle, our garments will be there every step of the way.  When designing our line, we focused on incorporating eco-friendly manufacturing techniques.  For example, our Summit Legging is made from recycled water bottles and our entire Traveler collection is made from locally grown and knit cotton and dyed in Detroit, which reduces our shipping footprint by 600 miles with each roll of fabric used. 

When delivering goods to you, we use only recycled polymailers and recycled paper in our hangtags.  We focus on minimizing our negative impact on the planet every step of the way.  We've taken extra steps to ensure that every aspect of your experience with York is thoughtfully constructed in a way that benefits both you and the world we live in. 



People. Product. Planet.
