Our Impact

Driven by our mission to provide dignified employment opportunities to resettled refugees and create environmentally-responsible production processes, Knotty Tie Co. is pioneering what ethical manufacturing looks like in the age of fast fashion.

By creating opportunities for arriving refugees to work in their trade, and in a supportive work environment with flexible schedules, fair wages and generous benefits, we're removing barriers for them to become economically self-sufficient and culturally assimilated.

Our secondary mission is to lead the industry toward more eco-friendly manufacturing processes, renewable energy use, better practices in recycling and diversion of materials, and greater environmental awareness.

We are devoted to reducing emissions and waste while making one-of-a-kind products on any schedule. We have developed goals and metrics to monitor and manage our environmental impacts over time in hopes that we may pave the way for other apparel manufacturers.

All garments are printed and made at our facilities in Denver, Colorado. See where we're heading in our Annual Impact Guide.
