Maniwala is a Vegan Brand
We do not use animal-based products in any facet of production.  We work hard to make sure all of our products are entirely plastic-free, including their packaging (all our packaging is made from 100% recycled paper).  
Made In California, USA
Our goods are cut and sewn in Los Angeles of materials which have been globally sourced in an ethically and environmentally responsible manner. 
Waste Not, Want not
To reduce production waste to a bare minimum, Maniwala retains almost all offcuts
and scraps so they can be repurposed into smaller items.


We're Tight With Our Makers

We visit each factory and form strong relationships with their owners. We’re committed to ecological and social transparency in each step of our production process. In short, we know the people that make our goods - and we know they're treated right.  


Keep The Plant - Lose The Pesticides

The linings inside all Maniwala bags and all of our hemp products are made from pesticide-free hemp.


If It's Broke, Fix It

Our goods are intentionally made to last a really, really long time, and they're all backed by a lifetime guarantee. We believe in buying less, better things that can be repaired rather than replaced. If your Maniwala product fails to live up to your expectations, let us know and we'll repair or replace the item.


From Pineapples With Love

Maniwala is proude to be one of the first U.S. manufacturers to use the revolutionary Pinatex textile. Pinatex is a natural innovative and patented new material made from pineapple leaf fibers gathered by partnered farming cooperatives in the Philippines.

Pinatex fibers are the by-produt of the pineapple harvest.  No extra land, water fertilizer or pesticides are require to produce them.  No pineapple are harmed in the making of Pinatex. Learn more about why we love Pinatex here.


Locally Sourced, Ethically Made
Maniwala sources the majority of fabrics and materials from locally owned businesses in Los Angeles. We seek out suppliers who practice fair and safe labor, and who are using eco-friendly manufacturing processes.

Regardless of cost, we always try to source materials that are domestically grown and/or manufactured. Unfortunately, this simply is not possible for all materials (such as with hemp, for legal and industry reasons). When domestic options are unavailable, we make sure to buy our globally sourced materials through a U.S. intermediary, so they get a chunk of the change as well. 


We're Far From Done

We're always looking to do better, and would love to hear from new domestic suppliers and from anyone with advice on improving our practices.
