WHO The Blanc team is comprised of polar opposites: a creative scientist from Encinitas California, and a Canadian born ice-skating yogi entrepreneur. We came together under the commonality of a passion for the creation of unique, beautiful, and stirring items that we found lacking in closets everywhere.
WHAT Blanc stands for that classic white shirt that is a necessity in everyone’s closet, especially with a French cuff for both men and women. We wanted to bring this classic to you with all sorts of twists that allow each individual to be able to emphasize their own personal style.
WHERE Based in beautiful coastal Southern California, we design our collections and house our merchandise until it reaches closets worldwide. Our manufactures were handpicked in Macau after many years of laboriously searching for the most mindful, loving and caring partners. Each piece is handcrafted and all our ties are sewn by hand, to ensure the highest quality items.
WHEN Blanc was born in spring of 2008, with just a few basic pieces; we have now expanded into a more comprehensive collection for both men and women.
WHY The scope of what Blanc strives to embody can be summed up as: "Greater Than Truth is Truthful Living". This one loaded yet simple phrase grounds our core principles and how we strive to operate at Blanc. We make every effort to perfect our relationships with clients, retailers and manufacturers, believing in a holistic approach to every aspect of life. Now you’re probably wondering what does this have to do with fashion? We feel that Blanc, meaning "white" in French, has a multifaceted interpretation. White is the classic white shirt, and it is also a symbol of that which is pure, whole, light, good, honest, clean, and new. Truth is one facet of what white or Blanc stands for. This then becomes a lifestyle, by seeing all that is pure, whole, new, light, good, and honest in our daily lives. Waking up each day with a renewed sense of gratitude for all the amazing opportunities that life has for us.
