USA Strong Employment at BELLA+CANVAS
American made is something we believe in deeply. As one of the biggest clothing manufacturers in America, we provide well over 1,000 jobs right here in Los Angeles. We believe it’s important, now more than ever, to keep the American economy running through employment and manufacturing on our own soil. We’re proud to be USA Strong.
Protecting Worker Health And Safety During the COVID-19 Crisis
During these unprecedented times, we understand that safety is of the highest concern. While we continue to manufacture in our Los Angeles headquarters, we are taking every possible precaution to ensure our employees and customers’ safety. Below are just a few of the steps we have taken to protect our work space:
- Adhering to CDC guidelines
- Social distancing and regular hand sanitation
- Nurses on site, regular temperature checking
- 2-3 daily cleaning shifts of all surfaces and common use areas
BELLA+CANVAS Shifts From T-shirts to Masks, Overnight
Today, most hospitals and shelters are in desperate need of masks, whether it be medical or non-medical. With our manufacturing capabilities, BELLA+CANVAS is offsetting this shortage by producing 100 million non-medical face masks a week. We’re here to help flatten the curve.
