Our story began in 2018 in a small studio apartment in the Shaw neighborhood in South St. Louis. JON BLANCO founder, Anthony, was new to the city. Feeling unfulfilled with his day job, creativity prevailed and with one desk and a little free time on the nights and weekend, the brand was born. The brand stemmed from the difficulty in finding local apparel that was both minimally designed and operating with a bigger vision. The motto, inspired by the world, was identified as the guiding idea behind JON BLANCO. It pushes us to operate using a business model that embraces both people and planet. People: We see the humanity in everyone. We listen and learn first and aim to support our community. Planet: There is no Planet B. We have integrated organic and recycled fabrics as well as domestic manufacturing in our business model. We want to be one of the most cutting edge sustainable apparel brands in St. Louis.
Our products are made to last. We believe in balancing accessibility, quality and sustainability in every product. Each product is minimally designed, making them practical and versatile for everyday use. Inspired by the world and the beautiful city where we live, our products represent something bigger than a clothing brand. They represent a community of open-minded, curious individuals who each have something to contribute to society. Our community is inspired to be more, to do more and to change the world. We hope you’ll join us in our effort!
Together, we can make the world a better place, one article of clothing at a time.
