We are GARCIA A bit Italian, a bit Dutch. It’s hard to say where one ends and the other begins. What we agree on is our passion for family. Not because our founding values are born from it, but because we are a family business serving families. It has been part of our DNA since day 1. We make clothing for him, for her, for teens and for kids. For the entire family
Our Roots Italy 1972. Maurizio and Isabella open one of the very first denim factories in Urbania, later known as The valley of jeans. Passion for craftsmanship and beautiful jeans comes to life when Maurizio decides to name the brand after the love of his life, Isabella Garcia. A brand is born. In 1985 misfortune strikes the small factory. To avoid the loss of his many patterns and denim archives, Maurizio decides to hand over these to his loyal customer and friend from the Netherlands, who firmly promises to uphold the brand legacy. Today, this coming together of Italian passion and finesse, with a typically Dutch entrepreneurial design, remains key to the fashion brand with a denim heart. CSR Our ‘Family Values- Then, Now & Forever’-program reinforces GARCIA’s commitment to do better. To minimize our environmental footprint & create great clothing for families. We know we have a lot more to do, but our journey so far has brought us positive change and great steps forward. We will continue and do better every day. That is our commitment towards the environment and towards future generations.
