Summer Internship - Product Development/Technical Design job in Irvington
We make clothes. Simple, well-crafted clothes. We believe in great design. That great design takes time. We make work a place of purpose. Where what you give is as important as what you get. Work is most fulfilling when it is meaningful to you. When your life’s purpose intersects with your worklife’s purpose.
We make life the center of business. We do business differently. Purposefully. Consciously. Profit is important. It sustains us. But doing business purposefully takes more than profit. It takes new ideas, new practices. This is business as a movement.
