About Industry of All Nations

Industry of All Nations was born of both a necessity and a dream. The necessity? A shortage in responsibly-produced wardrobe staples and home goods. The dream? A revolution, shared by brothers and brand founders Juan Diego, Fernando, and Patricio Gersovich.

Industry of All Nations promise and point of distinction is its emphasis on single region garment projects: making sure farmers, dyers, and merchants are being properly compensated for their roles in the business model. As a result, every item sold by Industry of All Nations possesses a personality born of the land and people who produced it.

Five years after the brand’s inception, Industry of All Nations opened its first brick and mortar location in Los Angeles—ushering in a new era and a new opportunity to honor the contributions of every person at every level of the supply chain through personal interaction. “Everything had thought behind it,” says Michael Hammer, the brand’s Operations Manager of the intentional foray into retail. “Everything had a purpose.”

Champions of transparent practice, stylish sustainability, and repair over replacement, IOAN goes beyond simply having stylish, well-made product in hand. Constantly striving to tweak and refine their process to reach greater sustainability, IOAN works toward as little shipping and dyeing as possible, remains committed to making minimal waste and uses responsible materials to maintain as small a footprint as possible. In addition to a focus on what impact they can make in production, the team also wants to spark change in others. If their company relies on the strengths of natural and recycled fibers—can other brands be inspired to do the same? The Gersovich brothers are committed to pushing that change forward.
