I am excited to announce that virtue + vice has officially opened the doors to our factory!

We are dedicated to ethical labour practices and sustainable supply chain solutions.

While the cut+ sew unit is now open, we still have big plans for the future! In the next 6 months we will be setting up solar panels to cleanly power our entire facility.

And, starting fall 2020 we will open our doors for guests to come and stay with us!
