offering streetwear apparel that betters the world for all its inhabitants. awoke n’ aware is the go-to for a community who wants to look dope af but wants to do better. we focus on three pillars: the fit, the stitch, the mission.
Not yet! it's definitely something we're thinking about.
for right now, you won’t find any brick and mortar store, for a few reasons.
Price: we are able to avoid huge markups by not having a traditional retail spot.
Online vs Traditional:
Energy: currently running a brick and mortar store takes a lot of energy. we’re constantly looking for options to minimize our environmental impact. and that means e-comm.
#DYK an online store uses about 30% of the energy as traditional retail!
Hangers: Without a traditional retail space, we’re able to significantly reduce the number of hangers we need. We still have to use some, but we stretch the life of our recycled hangers regardless, and reuse whenever we can!
Plastic: Did you know, the average family goes through 1500 plastic bags a year?! It takes 12 MILLION barrels of oil to manufacture enough bags just for america. We HATE that and we have opted in for only 100% post consumer mailers when we send you a package. Plus, without a storefront, we don’t need to use any shopping bags!

Yaaas!! We can’t claim to want to better our planet, and not consider our global community. We manufacture globally, but only with factories with the highest regard for their people. It takes us several months to find a partner factory that we feel confident will represent our brand well, which means treating their employees with love! We leverage accredited compliance audits, such as Fair Trade Certifications, as a base level. We want our partners to have fair pay and work hours that are reasonable. We focus on developing relationships with our manufacturers to make sure this is a consistent truth.
