Tell us where you're at now as a company
At Associated Humanity, we believe in using fashion as a force for good. Our philanthropic clothing brand is solving the problem of social inequality by creating high-quality clothing that not only looks good but also does good.
Check out how our team delivers meaning past every apparel purchase, from idea to your favorite piece in your closet.
Begin with Purpose
At the beginning of each year, our team decides what cause we will be supporting for the upcoming year(s). After choosing, we make a list of 5-7 non-profit's in our community and decide which organization aligns best with Associated Humanity's values. Afterwards, we reach out to the NPOs and begin setting up the campaign for the following year(s).
Some of our favorite non-profit's to work with are Nurture KC and Halo Foundation. Check out our Partners page to learn more.
Idea to Reality
The design process is incredibly exciting. We have an in-house designer for AH, but if we feel we need a different voice to represent the non-profit, we typically reach out to local designers whose design fits the vibe of the NPO. Once we've gathered the designer(s), we have a brief discovery call or email chain with the non-profit. During this time, everyone is writing down buzzwords, big picture ideas, or general values of the organization. Afterwards, the designer takes all of the information gathered and creates a few early stage concepts. During that time, Makenzy is curating the right style/cut of clothing for the drop. After two weeks, all forces meet together and magic happens! Once we've agreed on a design as a team, we send it over to the non-profit and they give us the thumbs up. Last touch is deciding where to put our iconic Associated Humanity red tag.
Our clothing is ethically made using sustainable materials and production methods, reducing our environmental impact. By wearing our clothes, our customers are not only making a fashion statement but also supporting a movement towards a more equitable and sustainable future for all. Contact us if you have any questions about our process.
