We wanted to develop an assortment of clothes that had enough technical function to be used doing most activities but has enough style to look in place when traveling, at work, or out on the town. Photo: @taylormichaelburke
We are taking a slow fashion approach to design, only bringing products to market that fill a gap in what’s out there today and not rushing to meet a season’s sales goals. Photo: Aislin Fall
Re-use, Repair, Recycle, Re-purpose
JOOB's Zero Waste Commitment
We launched our Zero Waste initiative with the goal of having zero JOOB clothes going to landfill - through initiatives of re-use, repair, recycle, and re-purpose.
Before we launched our company, we quantified our end to end supply chain emissions and invested in carbon reducing projects to offset any unavoidable emissions. Climate Neutral is our partner we use to certify our climate neutral status every year.
Finding Innovative Fabrics
We try to incorporate fabrics made from sustainable materials like recycled PET bottles, non-mulesed merino, and sustainable beech trees. And with all products, we invest in carbon reducing projects to have a climate neutral impact across our product line. Photo: @aleccbrown
1% for the Planet
We believe in giving back. That’s why JOOB partners with 1% for the Planet to give one percent of its yearly revenue to the Huron River Watershed Council. Photo: @andrewfitts
Beyond the Business

Building Long Term Partners Locally and Globally
When we talk about sustainability, it has to include the people element, and if the people making your product are making a living wage. This is why we chose our Brooklyn, NY and Bangkok, Thailand partners - because they pay well above the minimum wage and help develop the skills of their team members beyond what they are doing today.

Only buy what's needed - the planet would be in much better shape.
There are two considerations you'll want to make to get the correct size for our Women's Everywhere Pants - Outseam and Waist. The outseam measures from the waist to the ankle, and the range for sizing is below:
For the range of waist measurements, use the guide below. The pants have some elastic stretch in the waist so if you are between sizes and you usually fit the lower size, go with that size.
An example from our staff, to give you an idea for sizing and general height as it relates to size, is below:
Co-founder Nicha Sangiampornpanit is 5'2" and fits the XS
Collaborator Lauren Eva Lane is 5'7" and fits the S
