The North Face Hoodie;
Zero fallout work with Master Patternmaker Daniel DiSanto " This hoodie is something I designed at The North Face with Lydia Wendt, who is very active in Fibershed. 


After over 18 months of development The Backyard Hoodie was launched winter 2014. California Cloth foundry's Lydia Wendt, design lead, created the blends,  yarns, textiles, and certified supply chain; sourcing and collaboratively  managing product development from fiber to fashion right here in our own backyard.

French Terry
Our heathered french terry is a beautiful blend and construction, imbuing superior drape, hand and performance from the knit structure as well as high quality fiber and yarn diversity.

Our fabric development - all naturally dyed

GOTS certified naturally dyed swatches

With the finest American fibers, including long staple cottons, hemp, wool and other naturals; we develop all our cloth, and apparel in-house, utilizing a variety of milling processes and finishes, achieving great breadth and depth of color, surface effects, luxurious hand and performance.
