Founded by Iris Alonzo and Carolina Crespo, formerly of American Apparel, Everybody is working to promote sustainability in fashion. With the tagline ‘our t-shirts are made from trash’ the brand has worked with a mill in South Carolina to develop a new fabric that is produced from 100% recycled cotton.

Everybody ensures that all of its workers are paid what it describes as a fair wage and 95% of the factories are in California, where Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) standards are much stricter than the rest of the country.

Each week the brand will introduce a new product, designed by Alonzo and Crespo’s friends and family, and the website will narrate the stories of the workers that produced the items, highlighting Everybody’s community-first approach and creating a strong sense of narrative around the brand.
