Tribe Kelley is a family owned business that was started in 2014 on a tour bus by husband-wife, Brian and Brittney Kelley. The brand consciously and ethically produces clothing in Downtown, Los Angeles CA where the Kelley's oversee each step from design to delivery with the assurance that all employees are paid fairly and treated equally. They design transitional fashion pieces that are intended to keep you feeling comfortable and stylin' from the plane to the party (or business meeting of course). Creating jobs domestically and ethically producing our clothing is important to the Kelleys. Each piece is designed with love, careful detail proudly produced right here in the United States.
The brand offers a high level of quality and even more importantly, offers a platform for us humans to connect on. In fact, the Tribe Team is currently working behind the scenes on its very own philanthropy that will create an opportunity for free mental health education. We are over the moon excited about this journey! We are also planning to go sustainable by the end of 2020 (check out our blog post about it!)
More than a brand, Tribe aims to create a lifestyle that’s embracing and genuine. Whether it’s one-of-a-kind experiences or philanthropic endeavors, we love celebrating our loyal Tribe Community. Join the Tribe if you haven't already!
tribe (noun) | \’trīb\
: a group of humans that share a common interest or connection
We believe being a part of "the tribe" encourages uniqueness and individuality. There are tribes all over the world and our tribe pieces are a representation of what the Kelley's have gathered from spending time among different cultures. Traveling inspires them each to integrate elements from all over the world into the brand.
"The teepee that you find in our logo has several meanings. I am proud to say I have Native American blood in me passed down from my maternal lineage. I grew up in Indian Springs, Georgia drinking the "healing water" (that smells like eggs! haha) I participated in Creek Indian festivals and rituals as a child. I went on to study several upper level courses of Native American History in college and loved the metaphorical meanings behind the teepee and how it brought different tribes shelter and communion. We have a real 23-foot teepee at our home in Nashville, Tennessee that was a wedding gift from Brian’s duo partner, Tyler, and his wife and my good friend, Hayley. The teepee is a place Brian and I shared many special and creative moments, and what better image to symbolize our family, our pack, our Tribe, than a teepee. ”- Brittney Kelley

“It is important to us that we manufacture as many of our goods in the United States as possible. We develop and design every piece either in Nashville, TN or Los Angeles, CA. We both want to make quality clothing that our consumer will appreciate. Our team has poured time, detail and love into each piece you will receive."- Brian & Brittney Kelley
