The Base Project

The Base Project is a socially-motivated fashion brand building a bridge between artisans in the developing world and the US fashion market. Through their unique fashion projects and unisex bracelets The Base Project creates jobs and invest in community development projects.

Founded by entrepreneurial twin brothers, Chris and Doug Akin, The Base Project scours the globe, partnering with local artisans to design and produce locally-sourced, eco-friendly fashion at fair trade prices. These entrepreneurs learn invaluable communication, operations, finance and marketing skills that provide a means to improve their lives and their community. Additionally the Base Project invests a portion of every purchase into community development projects in the artisan's region. WEAR YOUR IMPACT and wear what matters.
