CD Studio collaborates with certified and vetted partners that respect their environment, employees, and crucially ensure all are paid a living wage. We produced our first round of clothing in Bangladesh, in a factory signed up to the Bangladesh Accord, an independent, legally binding agreement between brands and trade unions to work towards a safe and healthy garment and textile industry in Bangladesh.

From May 2022, our apparel will be produced in two fully-vetted factories in downtown Los Angeles.
