elSage is deeply rooted in doing things the right way. Quality and ethical manufacturing are core values. Giving back and supporting what we want to see in the world are also key components of elSage.
When stocking the shop we seek out small businesses who share our ethics regarding environment, social justice, reproductive rights, and equality. We look to source items from businesses owned by people traditionally underrepresented in the business community. Most of the small businesses we work with are owned by women, people of color, and/or LGBT artisans.
All of our apparel is ethically made. A little over half of our goods are manufactured for us in the US, the remaining are manufactured overseas. All of the manufacturing is done under ethical standards with fair wages and treatment of workers. The inks we use are high quality, water based ink. Our ink gets softer with wear and will never crack.
When you purchase something from elSage you are part of a company that is doing things with intention and integrity. Thank you for your business and please let us know if you have questions about our practices.
