“Halley Stevensons offer is unlike any other company I have worked with.  From being a small start up company, they worked with us on our unique business model. At that time, I could not find this option, especially in the world of waxed fabrics, anywhere else in the world. When we honed our responsibility efforts, and switched to organic cotton, when other partners were telling us that we are not big enough, the team told us they would work with us to achieve our goal.  I cannot speak highly enough of the amazing team behind the brand. They bring their passion and hard work to the table every day…”

– Nick Kemp, Head Designer Taylor Stitch (San Francisco)
