  • Our Products

  • WHERE ARE YOUR GARMENTS PRODUCED? Our garments are manufactured all over the world as certain factories and regions have different specialties. Currently we produce most of our products in India, China, and some in the United States. Ethical manufacturing is important to us and when possible, our design team is fully involved in the production process. Over the years, we have worked to develop close relationships with these factories to ensure our garments are made with a high degree of quality that we can stand behind.

  • WHY DON'T YOU MAKE CLOTHING IN SIZES LARGER THAN XXL? We will begin offering a larger men’s assortment at the beginning of Spring 2024.

  • WHY AREN'T MODELS SHOWN WEARING YOUR CLOTHING? We intentionally do not show models in exotic locales to imply who wears our clothing. Instead, we focus on the details or special elements of the clothing itself. Our clothing is designed to run true-to-size and we recommend you choose your normal size when purchasing. And as always, if you have specific questions about fit, please feel free to contact us at

  • Care Instructions

  • HOW DO I CARE FOR MY CARBON2COBALT CLOTHING? Each garment comes with instructions specific to its fabric, construction, and dyes. Please refer to your item’s inner tag for the most relevant information.

  • IS THE QUALITY OF CARBON2COBALT GOOD? Each of our unique designs feature the highest quality products made from the world’s finest materials. If you feel your item has faulty construction or subpar materials due to a manufacturing issue, we want to correct the problem. Please reach out to us at or call 805-687-7442.

  • ARE YOUR CLOTHES PRE-SHRUNK OR WILL THEY SHRINK AFTER WASHING? If you follow the care instructions on the garment, you should not experience any major shrinkage. However, all dryers heat differently, and high temperatures can sometimes constrict fibers. We recommend avoiding drying your garments on high temperatures for any extended period.

    • To ensure the longevity of your garment, we do not recommend putting any items in a dryer for extended periods of time. Dryers run at very high temperatures and can compromise natural fabrics.
    • Wash garments inside out to protect buttons and delicate fabrics.
    • un a cycle in your washing machine after using bleach to ensure that the chemicals do not affect the next washing load with your clothing to avoid fading.
    • For all garment dyed or indigo pieces, wash alone or with like colors on a delicate cycle by itself for the first few times, as these are prone to bleeding.
    • Due to the dye used in garment dyed pieces there may be a faint odor, which is normal. Once the piece has been washed the dye smell will fade.
    • Please lay all sweaters and sweats flat to dry to prevent stretching the material or causing threads to pull.
    • It is only natural for a bit of pilling to occur on soft sweater materials. We recommend the use of a cashmere comb (it works well on more than cashmere) from time to time to keep your items looking their best.
    • For any pulls in material, do not cut the thread. A bobby pin can be used to pull the thread back through. If this doesn’t work, please take the item to a tailor for further repair.
