Everyone talks about wanting to be American made, but no one is willing to make it happen. Patrick cares enough about New York to say let’s make it work. We’re proud to be working with Paskho. This partnership is a guidepost – showing that it’s possible to do things the right way.

One consumer product represents the hard work of many – meet the incredible Makers who have helped bring your Community-Made products to life. For us, these Makers represent the highest form of creative expression. As a people-first brand, we’re committed to creating safe and fair wage jobs in the United States. Our first pod of Community-Made Makers was established in New York City, in partnership with the Skilled Laborers Brigade.

Skilled Laborers Brigade was founded in 2020 by Shannon O’Hara, Rachel Kibbe, and Annie Keating, veterans of the fashion and sustainability spaces, as a response to supporting those in need of PPE on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic. The founders immediately recognized the problem was much larger than just the need for masks and gowns and expanded its model to include all apparel manufacturing, including Paskho Community-Made. Leveraging a unique hybrid work-from-home domestic manufacturing process, SLB employs 500+ highly skilled garment workers and factories, who work under safe conditions. SLB is rethinking apparel manufacturing from the start; their goal is to employ more people, at fair-wages, and to manufacture sustainably.

Master craftspeople from New York’s legendary theater community joined together through SLB to create the Paskho Community-Made New York City pod. We celebrate these Makers, and the beauty of their creations.
