Behind the Brand
Everyone loves a high quality pair of jeans, and most people would love to know that their purchase is empowering and creating opportunity in someone's life.
Artisan Cloth and The JeansProject were founded by Brad Alden Mowry. His first experience of the "jeans" industry was a behind the scenes look that immediately captured his attention. After visiting a denim laundry in Los Angeles, where all of the best qualities and colors are brought to life, he was hooked.
Brad and his wife Danielle oversee all operations for Artisan Cloth Inc. with showrooms based in Los Angeles and New York City. Artisan Cloth specializes in creative denim development, marketing and sales support. They provide their services and expertise to today's leading retailers in denim and apparel throughout the United States and Canada. Artisan Cloth is the exclusive US partner to Kurabo Industries Ltd., a highly respected and esteemed denim manufacturer from Japan.
The JeansProject is a denim brand that started with the idea of combining the years of experience and resource in the denim and wash industry with a heart to do something good for the city of Los Angeles. This brand exists to help those in need. Everyone loves a high quality pair of jeans, and most people would love to know that their purchase is empowering and creating opportunity in someone else's life. Seeing the natural creativity and incredible technicality of creating jeans, as a lifelong musician, this composition of two world's was familiar territory for Brad. This almost magical process was an art. Experiencing the denim washing process first-hand was so exciting, and it forever changed him... so much so, it's become a major part of his life for the past 23 years.
