Founded in Los Angeles in 1997 by husband and wife team, Ken and Deb Polanco, the vision was to be a global lifestyle brand with a conscience. Over the years they’ve grown from master pant makers into a full women’s collection. 

They proudly support non-profit organizations that empower and benefit women to pursue a safe, healthy and fulfilled life such as the Downtown Women’s Center, Los Angeles, Dress for Success, Los Angeles & Nationwide, Elizabeth’s House, Pasadena CA and Impacto Textile Impact Program, Mexico. Sanctuary team members donate time outside of work as part of the #SANCTUARYGIVESBACK program truly living the company’s values:

Act with Integrity | Succeed Together | Inspire Innovation | You Matter

Collections capture the laid-back aesthetic of California, effortless attitude of New York and the adventurous spirit of the world to inspire and guide women through their 24/7 style. 

Sanctuary is extremely proud to have created an inclusive shopping experience for women of various sizes to enjoy the same modern and timeless pieces (XS-3X in tops and 00-24W in bottoms). 

They want to be at the forefront of the eco-movement and be a more socially and environmentally conscious lifestyle brand. They’re on their way with the use of low impact fibers like linen and tencel, recycled plastic and their advanced wash process that uses only a single glass of water per pair of denim in its wash process-- saving 95% of the water traditionally used. 

They are committed to working with sustainable and ethical suppliers that meet their high standards. 

Look out for Sanctuary's Smart Creation hang tags on your purchase that tells the story of conscious production. Their registered trademark indicates all products that use less water, chemicals, and energy.
