Founded by Matt and Emily Baldwin in 2008, BLDWN has always been a family affair. 

We started out making quality jeans for our friends and ended up with the opportunity to dress our city and then our country and now the world. All of our customers, whether they hail from the Midwest or Japan – are like family to us. 

In a world of fast fashion, we like to take it slow. We design clothing that will be the first thing you pack and the last thing you throw out. Since our early days in Kansas City, we've worked tirelessly to make clothing that will last. 

For us, it's about creating clothing that connects: Great design has the power to bond, to inform, to help us narrate our story, to encourage discovery, and uncover history.
