Our mission is to revolutionize clothing through conscious design.

Keep scrolling, and we’ll walk you through what that means in practice—from the way we design to the partners we choose to create it.

Creating fabrics in mills, and clothing in factories, requires energy + water. So we choose our partners specifically for their sustainable practices, technological superiority and overall impact on the world. We’re young, but we aim to be a world leader, working with the highest quality fabrics and partners out there. We’re ADAY and we make clothing that’s strong, comfortable and long lasting. Hi.

Our process starts with
intentional design

Our intention:

We start with simplicity + versatility. Marrying classic silhouettes with clean lines, we include only the details that are truly necessary.

Our questions:

How will we make our favorite staples better? How will we make them your go-to? How will we make them last? How will we make the plain white tee truly magical?

Our development:

Instead of following seasonal trends, we spend our time perfecting the pieces our customers love through wear testing, customer feedback + experimentation. This allows us to keep improving each of our pieces so they can be loved even more.

Design iterations before launch. Our award-winning and best-selling Throw & Roll leggings goes through a new iteration almost every two months. We still have so many ideas on how to make them better.

Next comes our fabrics

We scoured the world to find the perfect luxury textiles. We select them for their unique properties (super powers!) and hand feel.

5 of our favorite fabrics:

The hand feel of silk, yet durable + easy to care for

Thermo-regulating thermal fabric. Soft inside, matte outside.

Light weight, four-way stretch, sculpts but never constricts.

Scuba made soft + breathable

A recycled super fabric, made from fishing nets collected from our oceans.

Each sourced for their super powers like:

wrinkle resistant

quick drying

high stretch

silk feel

breathable

water resistant

light weight

super soft

pilling resistant

UV protected

We also make our own.

When we can’t find what we’re looking for, we make it ourselves. Meet our custom fabric, Recycled Scuba, recycled, made using custom grade Repreve® yarn, which is made from water bottles. Its inaugural product is the Waste Nothing Jacket, which is proudly made of 41 bottles.

Our mills make our super power fabrics

We hold our partners to the highest technological, environmental + social standards. Making and dying fabric requires energy + water, so it’s important to us that we look at the impact across the board.

Here’s why it matters:

Our mills are world leaders in high quality performance fabrics and make fabrics that are super strong, super comfortable and long lasting. We’ve been selective in choosing partners that are Oeko-tex + Bluesign approved—meaning the chemicals used to treat the fabrics aren’t harmful to the environment. And, as we grow, we’re using more recycled and regenerated fabrics, creating new textiles where necessary.

Here’s where our mills are:

2 mills in Taiwan

4 mills in Italy
(near our factory!)

Here’s how they affect the world:

***Our aim is to get to 100% on all of the above by 2022.

Efficient machinery 4/4 2/2
Recycling 4/4 2/2
Reuses + purifies water 4/4 1/2

How to wear ADAY with love

Wear, sleep, repeat. Often.

Make sure to maximize your wears (which also lowers the cost per wear). We like that.

Do more with less.

Whether it’s building companies, raising a family or contemplating space travel, each piece is designed to take you there. So go!

In fact…we can get you started with a capsule wardrobe, so you have time and (head)space to focus on the things that matter.

How not to tear

Cold wash

to save 2,000 pounds of CO2 per household per year

Don’t iron

to preserve bonded seams + fabric super powers

Ditto, bleach

instead, try hydrogen peroxide in the whites wash or apply directly

No dryers or dry cleaning

to save energy + protect the environment from toxic chemicals

Use a washing bag

to increase longevity of your ADAY + catch microwaste (we love The Guppyfriend)

How to recycle + upcycle

We optimize for longevity, since our garments never go out of style. But if garments rip, or you no longer have a use for them, we have solutions for you.

1) Give it a new life.

Gift your ADAY to a friend, send us a photo and we’ll give you both $10 store credit. thredUP, Poshmark and Depop are other great options. Simple as that.

2) Help us recycle it.

Send us or drop off your old ADAY at one of our offices

New York

415 W Broadway, 5N New York, NY 10012 United States

London

ADAY attn Makerversity
Somerset House, West Good Entrance
London, WC2R 1LA United Kingdom

or email us at recycle@thisisaday.com to get a pre-paid return label. Bonus: We’ll give you $5 in store credit per recycled item.

Our ultimate goal is to achieve a closed, self-sufficient loop. We’re currently working to dream up ways to make old ADAY into new ADAY. Thank you for supporting us in getting there!

This is really just the beginning.
