Founded over 13 years ago, Scott Leonard and Matt Reynolds have turned Indigenous into a pioneer for fair-trade and organic clothing in the eco-fashion industry. Indigenous is rooted in the belief that clothing can be fashionable, yet kind to the environment by using low-impact dyes and supportive of the the people who make the clothes by preserving fair-trade wages and artisan cooperatives.
