Clothing and Apparel:
ASICS Ltd. began as Onitsuka Co., Ltd on September 1, 1949. Its founder, Kihachiro Onitsuka, began manufacturing basketball shoes in his home town of Kobe, Hyogo Prefecture, Japan. Soon after the range of sports activities widened to a variety of Olympic styles used throughout the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s by athletes worldwide. Onitsuka became particularly renowned for the Mexico 66 design, in which the distinctive crossed stripes, now synonymous with the company brand, were featured for the first time.
In May 1990, ASICS opened the Research Institute of Sports Science in Kobe. From Here on many remarkable technological innovations in sports shoes and apparel have stemmed from this unique site where scientists, athletes and coaches work together.
Staying true to the philosophy by which it was founded, every ASICS innovation, every concept, every idea is intended to create the best product. Their mission is to become the number one brand for the sports enthusiast. To accomplish this, they pledge to continue to make the best product; striving to build upon our technological advances and pushing the limits on what they can learn from the body and its needs in athletic gear. They pledge to bring harmony to the body and soul.
Reef’s 30-year heritage was born out of an idea by Fernando and Santiago Aguerre, entrepreneur brothers from South America with a love of surf and beach culture, to create a high-quality active lifestyle sandal. To bring their vision to life, the brothers moved to Southern California to manage the Reef brand, and they set up production in Sao Paulo Brazil in 1984, where they first produced the iconic sandal that made Reef the leader in open-toe footwear.
Inspired by the beautiful women of the beaches in South America, the brothers saw an opportunity to introduce the surf market to an exotic element that they called Miss Reef, who has become a global icon of the surfing community. Since then, the vibrant culture, imagery, and beautiful Reef girls of Latin America have been a part of Reef’s DNA.
Now 30 years later, the company is thriving as the global surf lifestyle brand that lives by the “Just Passing Through” mentality of surf adventure. Reef draws on the spirit of the global traveler to offer casual lifestyle footwear for men and women, as well as apparel for men that combines function and fashion for life on the road. Using technology and a host of eco-based materials inspired by Reef Redemption, Reef continually delivers instant comfort and exotic styling, and strives toward versatile and multi-functional products for the traveling surfer. The brand is also well known for an ambassador program that supports some of the best wanderers and waveriders around the globe.

For a Good Cause:
Cora is a brand that believes every woman deserves healthy and high-performing period products, as well as valuable and trustworthy information to educate and empower herself.
Cora has created a high-performing 100% organic tampon, free of the toxic chemicals and pesticides that can be found in conventional tampons.
Cora also considers the other aspects of period management, from the way women store their tampons at home (Cora’s Little Black Box) to the way women carry them throughout their day at the office/the yoga studio (Cora’s Little Black Clutch). These are included in every subscription; because we believe this is how period management should be treated–as integral to women’s lives instead of an afterthought.
