Our Story

Connected Apparel was founded on the basis of connection; the connection between past and present, family and colleagues. We are the result of CEO and owner Jay Balaban bridging the gap between his rich family history in the garment industry and his seasoned colleagues who are like his family too. While Jay, his daughter Leanna, and son Adam come from a family with more than 70 years of experience as dressmakers and designers, they are only one branch of our family tree. The Connected Apparel family also includes all of our seasoned designers, industry experts, and, of course, you.

Our Factory Partner

As a family run business based in Sri Lanka, our factory partner, Trendywear, holds many similar core values. They understand the importance of quality, communication and on-time delivery. We placed our first order with Trendywear in 2003, eager to begin a long lasting partnership. Twenty years later, they manufacter 98% of our products and we are just as impressed as today as we were after receiving that first order.

Their commitment not only to providing our customers with the best quality pieces, but also their sustainability efforts and the way they empower the lives of their thousands of employees, makes us proud to work with them every single day.
