What started as a one-women operation entirely designed, produced and sold in Oakland, CA has become a brand with global reach. While still designed in Oakland, our production now spans California, a woman-owned knitwear co-op in Peru, and small, fair-trade certified factory in India. With growth, the line insists on maintaining the highest possible standards of ethics and sustainability, even at the cost of extreme selectivity of potential partnerships. The line, featured in many lovely shops, is accessible and adaptable; the embodiment of the modern (and not too serious) ladies uniform.
THE SHOP ::: Ali Golden has two retail locations. The flagship Oakland store shares Temescal Alley with some of the cities great small businesses. The pedestrian lane has anchored the resurgence of Oakland as a micro hood destination. The Los Angeles store, on Sunset in Echo Park, has quickly grown a local following since opening in late 2015. Both retail shops feature an extensive selection of the Ali Golden line, as well as other like-minded, interesting and conscientious artists and designers.
