Founded in 2012, COTTONCITIZEN is a contemporary fashion brand born and based in Los Angeles. Known for reimagining classic American wardrobe staples like t-shirts and denim through signature collections, premium cotton fabrics, unique wash treatments, and mind-bending color stories, our elevated everyday essentials are designed to be universally synonymous with understated luxury and casual confidence.
Over 30 years ago, our co-founders’ father, Isaac Vanunu, founded American Dye House Inc. in L.A. Family-owned and operated to this day, this industry-leading facility is where every COTTONCITIZEN piece is handcrafted and perfected in small batches, allowing our meticulous attention to detail to thrive.
Fascinated by L.A.’s iconic elements and driven by an incessant desire for global adventures — setting out to deliver our distinct Southern Californian style and jetsetter-approved comfort to all citizens of the world is at the heart (and soul) of who we are.
With the rare access to complete 360-degree control of every step in design and manufacturing processes, we directly implement sustainably-focused methods: limited runs, conserving and recycling water, using recycled materials whenever possible, and applying advanced technology and machinery.
As an established family-owned business, we value genuine partnerships and connections. All of our premium cotton fabrics are locally and responsibly sourced to ensure the highest quality products. Our growing teams represent a wide range of nationalities and backgrounds who have all planted roots in L.A., helping to solidify our hands-on approach to craftsmanship as well as our connection with our community.
