It all started with a simple idea to design fresh high-quality items we wanted for ourselves. After leaving my banking job in New York, I moved back home, and started working on Brown Boy full-time, I found myself brainstorming about launching my own brand centered around my love for design and fashion. What started as an outlet for my passion and entrepreneurial experiment quickly grew into much more than just selling a few shirts.
Brown Boy didn’t start with a formal business plan and in fact I had absolutely no background in fashion and design. Rather than following the “traditional” model of starting a business, I just tried to apply common sense and research to figure things out as they came up. Whereas the design aspect came very instinctively and I completely surrendered to that passion. I’ve found that the best way of learning is by doing. You ought to jump in the water to learn how to swim.

Social entrepreneurship is an integral part of our founding principle. We are a 100% vegan company and don't use any animal products in our supply chain. We are 100% Fair-trade and absolutely do not indulge in sweatshops. Knowing how rooted exploitation is within the clothing industry we had to be the change we wanted to see.
