MATTEO has been designing and manufacturing in Los Angeles since our founding in 1996. Next year will be our 25th Anniversary. We like to say we are cut from a different cloth. We make each order individually right here in our Boyle Heights factory. We are deeply committed to creating jobs and building community.  

If you have a passion for our brand and our mission, we would love to hear from you. We are looking for hands-on leaders to take MATTEO to new heights.
