At Alta Gracia, we make clothes the right way in our sweatshop-free, Dominican Republic factory.

Our Vision

A world without sweatshops.

As the only certified Living Wage apparel company in the developing world, Alta Gracia ensures the people making your clothes can provide their families with all of life’s necessities – good nutrition, decent housing, medical care, the cost of education for themselves and their children.
LET’S CHANGE CLOTHES!

Our Story

Alta Gracia started with a simple idea—what if you paid workers a Living Wage?

With the help of the non-profit Worker Rights Consortium and a Dominican labor union that fights for garment workers, we opened a factory in Villa Altagracia in the Dominican Republic. We made our workers an ironclad promise—we will protect them from abuse and discrimination, respect their right to assemble, and pay them a living wage.

We're still going strong.

We have the only certified Living Wage apparel factory in the developing world. This Living Wage standard is independently audited by the Worker Rights Consortium (WRC) and updated annually to keep pace with inflation.

Our products are currently sold across the United States in over 500 college and university bookstores — and counting. We expanded into professional sports licenses in 2018 and are growing our business through strategic partnerships with industry leaders such as Fanatics, Barnes & Noble, and Follett.

Now, we're building our brand to spread our vision and sell directly to passionate consumers like you. Welcome to the movement… Let’s Change Clothes!

Our workers' wage is 3.5 times the national Dominican minimum wage. It's also 2.5 times the industry average.
