Our family company began in 1965 in the back of our father’s station wagon in Southern California, selling tennis shorts. Blending fashion and function has always been at the core of our business and in the 1960s we pioneered the development of Espa Twill, a stretch fabric more durable and longer lasting than other fabrics available at the time.
The business and the family made a move to the beautiful Sierra Nevada in the 1970s, where it took root and continues to blossom and grow to this day. Over 50 years later and we are proud to still be 100% family-owned and operated.
We’ve moved on from just tennis shorts and now aim to make a difference in clothing that is both beautiful, comfortable and functional. When we began the Aventura line for women in 2006, 18% of our clothing was made with organic cotton. Today, over 75% of our styles are made up of various low impact or sustainable materials.
