Our First Visit to the Big Boy Bamboo Factory in China - October 2016
We Just Visited Our Factory
We just got back from China where our incredible t-shirts are made by the finest pandas!
Big Boy Bamboo is proud of the working conditions of our factories in China, and we'll guarantee to keep them clean, safe, modern and professional. And, of course, we'll always pay a fair, living wage.
Remember, we're not making iPhones. We're making soft comfortable bamboo t-shirts and we only hire the best factories with the best working conditions.
(Seriously, we were really, actually there, and we have photographic evidence to prove it.)
Look, this is 2016 - our factories are clean, safe, modern, and professional. We're proud to say that they're staffed with the most talented workforce, and those people are making a real living wage.
We watched our amazing team sewing and assembling the shirts, and pressing, folding and packaging them for shipping to our warehouse.
We even folded and packaged some shirts with our team. We ate lunch with them. We joked and laughed together - or at least through our Chinese translator, anyway - and they're really great people!
Each t-shirt is carefully pressed and folded by hand.
Then we bag them and get them ready for shipping.

ready to be boxed and shipped to our warehouse.
This is our promise - soft, comfortable, eco-friendly Big and Tall clothing manufactured ethically by a team making a fair, competitive, living wage.
