Our Story & Mission Supporting Artisans & Causes Around the World

Serengetee started in 2012 after Jeff and Ryan met on Semester at Sea, a study abroad program that circumnavigates the globe by ship.

While traveling, we began exploring markets and collecting fabric from countries in Africa, Asia, and Central America.

We wanted to find a way to use these fabrics to make positive change in the world; we wanted to become the first brand centered around fabric.

So with zero fashion experience, we used the last pennies in our pockets and started cutting, sewing, and shipping pocket tees from our dorm room.

From day one, the mission was at the heart of everything Serengetee.

By purchasing fabric from over 25 countries, we support artisans, their families, and ancient fabric making traditions.

And, by giving back 10% of our profits to a diverse range of grassroots causes, we work to improve lives in their communities.

The stories of these fabric makers and causes are baked into every product we make, so when you wear Serengetee you are truly wearing a piece of the world.

Finally, we insisted on having all of our products handcrafted right here in Los Angeles, by our team of Sew Pros.

So we'll continue to travel and explore, looking for the next story to tell about an artisan or cause that inspires us. After all, Serengetee is all about them.

Wear The World, Jeff & Ryan
