Founded in 2015 by professional surfer Kelly Slater and acclaimed designer John Moore, Outerknown is a sustainable lifestyle brand made For People and Planet. Every decision is made with the highest regard for the hands that craft our clothes and the world we call home. From seeds to suppliers to circular design, the mission is to protect natural resources, empower the people crafting our clothes, and inspire change within the industry and beyond by being completely transparent about our process. From our launch, we have created trusted partnerships with companies such as Fair Trade USA, bluesign® and Econyl®. By patterning our supply chain processes around the Fair Labor Association guidelines, we reached full accreditation by the FLA in two and a half years, faster than any other clothing brand ever. Outerknown proves that sustainability and style can be synonymous and neither has to be sacrificed for the other.
"We started Outerknown to prove that we could make great clothes using fair labor practices and materials that are not harmful to the environment. Our growing business shows us that people want to make conscious choices about their clothes—you don't have to harm people or the planet for the sake of fashion."
