Made in the USA

Made in the USA

We take pride in the fact that we are a small batch, slow fashion brand. It’s an integral part of our core value of sustainability. What does this mean? It means that we take the time to design our products in New Orleans and work with a small production house in Houston to ensure top quality, local and ethical production, and the use of sustainable materials. 

Cultivating relationships with those who are involved in the making of our products is of big importance to LAYA Active. It furthers our commitment to building community and providing transparency to our customers. So, this begs the question. Who makes our garments? 


Let’s introduce you to Sew Pro Production! 

Sew Pro Production is a woman owned (can we get a hell yea?!), family run manufacturing company based right next door to New Orleans in Houston, TX. Kim T., the founder and owner of Sew Pro, has over 30 years of experience in the fashion industry. With over 30 years of experience as a seamstress and 20 years of experience as a successful business owner, Kim has a wealth of valuable knowledge and exceptional skills. Together with a small team, she aims to support local designers and business owners in producing high quality, USA made garments. 


We believe that good things take time and care; and when it comes to fashion, intentional production practices are proven to be kinder to the environment. 

Due to the nature of our small batch production, our designs are limited in stock and we sell out quickly. Not to despair, high selling designs usually make it onto the shop more than once a year! Send us an email if you have any questions or inquiries about past designs or custom orders!
