David and Derek met working at the biggest apparel company in the world. A decade later, with a passion for t-shirts and a ‘72 VW bus, they left the corporate life and set out to create a mindful movement, encouraging others to live in the now. After 7 years the journey continues with a growing community that has a love for mindfully made products.

Our state of mind comes from three core values:

• We encourage everyone to live their best life.
• We care about our ethical and environmental impact.
• We create well-made products that last.

In the same mindset, we are actively mindful of what and who is around us. We want to be present and make a difference. That’s why we give openly to multiple organizations that want to see the world become a better place. Join the mindful movement.
