Hola! We’re Alta Gracia.  

Founded in 2010 as the first Living Wage verified company, Alta Gracia is named after our flagship sewing factory in Villa Altagracia, Dominican Republic. We produce collegiate licensed apparel for over 700 bookstores, and our supply chain is 100% sweatshop-free. Looking for an ethically produced sweatshirt in your bookstore? You’ve come to the right place.

At Alta Gracia, we provide our employees a Living Wage.  Verified by the Worker Rights Consortium, this means we pay our workers enough to maintain a normal standard of living.  Seems simple enough, but we are the only verified Living Wage apparel company in the world.  Our wages are 2.5 times the industry standard and 3.5 times the Dominican minimum wage. This wage supports education for children, housing developments, and reliable transportation. Additionally, we provide healthcare, protection from workplace discrimination and abuse, and the freedom to unionize.

We’re going places, and we want you to come with us. To keep up with all things Alta Gracia, join our email list.
