Organic & Fair Trade Fashion
The vision to style the world in organic, fair trade fashion was founded over a decade ago. On a trip to South America back in 1993 Scott Leonard – co-founder of Indigenous along with Matt Reynolds – encountered the priceless beauty of clothes produced by local artisans. The richness of the culture and the amazing knitting techniques prompted him to bring back more than a souvenir to his Northern California home. He returned with a vision to pioneer a new business model that would invite each of us to wear apparel that demonstrates our commitment to the people and environment. Together, Scotty and Matt have helped form a scalable artisan network through the Indigenous clothing line that reflects a commitment to sustainability, social entrepreneurship and responsible actions by consumers and business alike.
Scott Leonard and Matt Reynolds, along with their California team, world-wide group of fashion representatives, passionate tribe of style ambassadors and fair trade artisan partners in Peru, have been working tirelessly to transform the fashion industry for the better. With every step, Matt and Scott strive to transform the often opaque fashion industry into one respected for producing beautiful and trendy clothes through transparent, ethical and eco-friendly methods.
