Ethics in Manufacturing
It Is Known is a handmade, artisanal brand that supports North American businesses and manufacturers.
All our rings are manufactured in Canada by an eco-conscious supplier who pays their employees a living wage and practices transparency when it comes to material content. Our premium clasps are sourced from New York City's garment district and manufactured in Japan: each one is tested by hand.
Every piece is entirely handmade, ring-by-ring, by the artist. It is Known does not use "mystery metals" imported chain or uncoated aluminum materials: all products are created from premium, saw-cut anodized aluminum rings with a bright, coated finish that resists wear & tear for years of enjoyment. In addition, each piece includes a lifetime of free, basic repairs.
All of these things cost a little more: we believe it's worth it.
Thank you for supporting an independent brand that cares about supply-chain transparency.
