About Us

At Tinc, we are trying to be as “green” as we can be. At Tinc Headquarters, we try to reuse and recycle whenever possible. Ana, our Designer, rides her bike around San Francisco for daily errands. Nathan, our Director of Color, uses cold-water formulas to dye and silk screen our fabrics. Everything is assembled locally in San Francisco (meet the people from design to final sewing at tincwear.com). We provide comprehensive information about shoes. We also try as much as possible to source environmentally friendly fabrics.
