JOOB was founded by John Ames, Jr and Nicha Sangiampornpanit, a husband-and-wife team of adventurers and outdoor enthusiasts. Inspired by the advent of sustainable clothing and fair trade initiatives, John and Nicha sought to develop a company that gives back to mother nature, to its employees, and to its partner ecosystem – at the same time as designing stylish yet functional clothes to be used across many activities.
Being a truly eco-conscious company goes beyond using sustainable fabrics, volunteering for local environmental groups, and donating to 1% for the Planet (though these are all initiatives we're proud of). We're taking it a step further by striving to be climate (or carbon) neutral by partnering with South Pole. South Pole helps businesses and governments calculate their carbon emissions, find ways to reduce them, and invest in carbon-reduction programs that are creating real positive social and ecological impact and provide quantifiable reductions in CO2 emissions.
The Check is made from sustainable beech trees and a silk blend. It's been battle-tested everywhere from hiking in Tacoma to flyfishing in the Bahamas. No matter where you go, The Check will help you look stylish and keep cool.
With a tailored fit, The Check looks great everywhere from a day at the office to a weekend in the mountains.
