GLOUCESTER STUDIO - WHERE IT'S MADE

Our recently renovated studio space is located in the heart of the marine industrial part of Gloucester. Our building modeled after a lightouse sits directly on the inner harbor and is home to our printing facility. All our clothing items are hand printed with love right in this studio space. Although unconventional, it is also a retail space where you can come and shop our products and see exactly how it's made.

ABOUT US

HOW ITS MADE

Although we started One Ocean clothing line using block printing technique, we have sense made the switch to screen printing as we’ve expanded to keep up with demand. We still hand print our clothing using screens that are hand drawn and or digitally edited by owner and artist Jamie! The designs are then transferred onto the screen using a photo emulsion process. Once our screen is finished, fabric ink is spread evenly across the top, hand printed onto the clothing item, and flashed dried under a heater! This process allows us to produce our items at a much faster rate than block printing while still maintaining the hand printed designs. Each item is hand printed with love in our Gloucester studio. 

ECO-FRIENDLY PRACTICES

At One Ocean being a green, environmentally friendly business is more than just a goal, it's a lifestyle. We’re extremely passionate about protecting the environment and limiting our footprint, we show it with our sustainable business practices.

We print our garments with eco-friendly water based ink that will not harm the environment if leaked into the water while washing. We source our clothing from the best companies around, known for being both ethical and sustainable. This means; Ethical production, Fair Labor Association Workplace, sustainable & organic materials, and Green Certified Businesses. We also installed a complex 7 stage water filtration system in our printing studio to keep any chemicals from entering the water system that catches waste and cleans harmful byproducts from waste water. We also support reusable products to limit single use wastes.

We compost all food waste with the local company Black Earth Compost and recycle everything possible to limit waste ending up in landfills.

All of our clothing tags, shopping bags, printer paper, and shipping labels are made from recycled and/or compostable materials. Our orders are mailed out in 100% compostable mailers that can be used more than once with dual adhesive strips, and can be recycled after its final use! If you receive a package from our online store please don't forget to reuse our mailers for a later date.

5% OF NET PROFITS

Every year we donate 5% of One Ocean Apparel net profits to an ocean conservation related charity. In the past we have donated to Atlantic White Shark Conservancy, The Seabin Project, Surfrider and many more. These organizations inspired us to start our own non-profit organization and after partnering up with some local like minded people we co-founded Cape Ann Maritime Partnership or C.A.M.P for short. Our partnerships contains members from NOAA Marine Debris, Seaside Sustainability, Maritime Gloucester, US Coast Guard, Gloucester's Clean City Commission and our clothing shop. Our mission is to eradicate marine pollution by purchasing and maintaining innovative technologies like marine debris skimmers and Seabins. This year CAMP was awarded a grant from Patagonia Boston to purchase two Seabin V5's. This summer they were installed. One on the docks out front of our Gloucester Studio and the other on the docks at Seven Seas Whale Watch. 

We do our part by volunteering on Gloucester's Clean City Commission and doing our own beach cleanups on a regular basis. We often organize and host local volunteer cleanups for the community.
