Response to COVID-19
I would like to send my thoughts to everyone currently struggling with the impact of the Coronavirus.
Throughout these strange and challenging times, I am making safety the number one priority by staying inside and taking proper sanitary precautions when venturing out to the store and shipping your orders. As the sole owner and operator of my business I assure you all health guidelines are being followed as I am packing orders with frequent hand washing and disinfecting surfaces. Orders will be shipped out on a less frequent basis to limit exposure. I plan to ship orders out once a week. As things change I will keep you updated.
I cannot thank you enough for your support during these times. Coronavirus poses a very real threat to independent businesses like mine. While large corporations have endless resources to fall back on and support them through this crisis, many smaller companies do not. Consider making a purchase from a brand or company that inspires you—even if it is not from BEETxBEET. Now more than ever, these independent businesses may need your support.
If you don’t have the means to support right now with your dollar, supporting us through Instagram is also helpful. Thank you for sticking with us.
Stay safe, everyone.

Manufacturing locally means less of an environmental impact, full transparency and true ethical manufacturing.
The workers involved in making our apparel are paid wages that meet or exceed California minimum wage. Our manufacturers have socially responsible operations, with fair, safe and healthy working conditions.
Since we are manufacturing locally it allows us to visit the facilities we use and meet the workers who make BxB garments face to face. It’s important to us to know exactly how our garments are made and be confident in the way they are made. We’d like to share that process with you.
It starts with yarn that gets milled and knitted into high quality fabric in local facilities. Then this fabric gets cut based on a pattern. The pattern pieces are sewn together creating a functional garment.
02 GARMENT DYE
Once the tees have been constructed they are sent to our dye house. Using low impact dyes, the tees are dyed with a custom color, wash or tie dye treatment that makes each one a truly unique piece. Garment dying creates a soft hand feel and are also pre-shrunk for a better fit.
03 SCREEN PRINTING
The final stage of this process includes adding any of the following when necessary: special labels, hang tags, cutting shirts into crop tops and folding to be prepared for shipping in our eco-friendly packaging from Eco-Enclose.
