San Francisco-based Road 22 has launched a line of luxe basics you can feel GREAT about.
**Plus! Receive a free canvas tote with every purchase
Named after the road leading out of the largest women’s correctional facility in the world, located in Central California, Road 22 supports women just out of prison, helping them create a fresh start by providing training and employment.
The brand’s debut collection of impossibly-soft tops comes in essential colors like white, soft black and heather grey. Some feature subtle silk-screened graphics, some raw edges, and all are tailored for an effortlessly-chic aesthetic.
We love Road 22’s generosity and vision, and of course that everything is designed, sourced and printed in the U.S. A. The Yoga Shop is carrying several styles – and a free Road 22 Tote comes with every purchase!
The designs have been spotted on Hugh Jackman, Lindsey Shaw of Pretty Little Liars, and snapped up by yogis and festival-goers all over the country.
In addition to providing jobs for former inmates, “Employment is the New Black”, the company donates 2% of its profits to charities supporting women at risk.
There are currently over 1 million women in the US criminal justice system — 64% being held for non-violent crimes, and 80% of them are mothers. Road 22 believes that “Every one of us deserves a chance” and we love the way the name symbolizes the road forward – putting one foot in front of the other, stepping into a future that is there for the taking, leaving the past behind.
Kudos to this visionary brand. Generosity never goes out of style.
