Yeoman Organics joins Fair Labor Association

Yeoman Organics, the San Francisco organic clothing company that makes t-shirts from organic cotton in downtown San Francisco, has become the latest esteemed member of Fair Labor Association (FLA) in the Bay Area. FLA membership ensures adherence to their Workplace Code of Conduct—considered the gold standard by many international labor rights organizations.

Formed in 1999, the Fair Labor Association (FLA) is a collaboration of civil society organizations and socially responsible companies, colleges and universities focused on improving working conditions in factories around the world. To become an FLA member, companies must voluntarily achieve the FLA's labor standards in the factories manufacturing their products.

“Our goal is to apply the principles of the local and organic movement to the clothing industry right here in San Francisco,” said Joe Levy, founder of Yeoman Organics. “From knit to print, our t-shirts are made in California. Every garment is cut and sewn on Market Street in an effort to bring manufacturing jobs back to San Francisco.

“Yeoman's commitment to sustainability begins with our selection of 100% organic cotton. We also use low impact dyes to color the shirts and water-based inks for printing on the shirts. And to cut down on the waste, our tees are tagless.”

Yeoman Organics makes t-shirts for companies like Thirsty Bear—San Francisco's first certified organic brewery—event shirts for companies and shirts for non-profit organizations, including public and private schools. The minimum custom-designed t-shirt bulk order is 25.

Founded in 2009 by Joe Levy and his family in their Bay Area home,Yeoman Organics is a San Francisco organic clothing brand and online retailer. Whereas most garment companies, even those headquartered in San Francisco, have moved manufacturing to developing countries—Yeoman Organics is producing organic cotton t-shirts in downtown San Francisco.

Formed in 1999, the Fair Labor Association (FLA) is a collaboration of civil society organizations and socially responsible companies, colleges and universities focused on improving working conditions in factories around the world. To become an FLA member, companies must voluntarily achieve the FLA's labor standards in the factories manufacturing their products.
