Our t-shirts might be the most visible aspect of Oaklandish, but our community work motivates everything we do. It’s our way of giving back to the city that gives so much to the world, and it informs every decision we make.

Our mission at Oaklandish is to spread “local love” by way of our civic pride tees and accessories, while creating quality inner city jobs for locals, and giving back to the people and places that maintain our city’s trailblazer spirit. In line with this mission, we donate a portion of proceeds to grassroots nonprofits and other community partners committed to uplifting Oakland. So, wear it well. When you rock these roots, you're representing and supporting Oakland!

Oaklandish promotes civic pride through quality apparel and accessories, plus work in the community.  We support grassroots organizations through grants,  donations, pro bono design work,  and marketing. We're a certified B Corp, meeting rigorous  standards of social and environmental performance,  accountability, and transparency.  Designed and printed in Oakland CA = creating living wage jobs and contributing to the local economy.
