Tennessee-based clothing brand Imogene + Willie creates dreamy denim and playful tees that are handcrafted in the USA.
The brand began in 2009 when a couple set out to sell 250 pairs of high-quality denim jeans. Three weeks later, they smashed their goal and set up shop in a Nashville petrol station. Fast forward to over a decade later, and the brand is still going strong with a store in both Nashville and Austin.
We love that Imogene + Willie keep production local with products handcrafted and finished in the USA.
