Why Fossa?

Because we’re passionate about fashion and proud to offer you quality, comfortable, innovative designs and custom decoration services for all your branded apparel needs.

Who is Fossa?

Fossa Apparel is a highly-respected leader in the promotional products industry, specializing in stylish, retail-inspired apparel. Our innovative designs, quality manufacturing, and custom decoration services go above and beyond all our customers’ needs.


Michelle Chen and her parents, Judy and Andy, founded Fossa Apparel in 2007. Family members William and Eric later joined in, working together to make Fossa a leading brand in the promotional products industry.

Women and
Minority Owned

Fossa Apparel is proud to be certified as both a women-owned and minority-owned business. We seek out any opportunity we can to work with and support other businesses that share these important distinctions.


Fossa Apparel is fully committed to being responsible caretakers of our planet. We offer eco-friendly products and take several waste-reducing measures, including recently changing all new packaging to polybags made with recycled materials.

Locally Committed

We’re constantly seeking opportunities to give back and make donations that will directly impact our communities. We have partnered with several local organizations to help get our resources into the hands of those in need, including:

Tzu Chi USA

An international humanitarian organization whose mission is to relieve the suffering of those in need while creating a better world for all through compassion, love, and hope.

World Harvest

Los Angeles non-profit focused on providing essentials to at-risk communities

Project Lemonade

Portland, OR-based non-profit that supports foster youth

Gardner Health Service

Healthcare provider in San Jose, California

Milpitas Police Department

Youth Homes Thrift Shop

A non-profit shop in Pleasant Hill, California, that raises money to support the needs of foster youth and youth impacted by trauma.

Female Forward

One of Fossa Apparels’s core missions is to deliver top-quality apparel to the women in the workforce.

Unlike many apparel companies, we start our design process with the woman’s version. It’s easier to modify a woman’s design for men than to carve a woman’s cut into a design originally for men. This unique approach makes our clothing fit women better, whose styling and fit preferences often get overlooked in the corporate wearables market. 

We are proud of our contribution to making women in the workplace feel great by looking great!

Our History

Our story began in 2006 when we realized the lack of quality, fashion-forward apparel in the promotional products industry and decided to start a company focusing on designing and producing retail quality outerwear.

Fossa Apparel was founded in 2007 to bring stylish, retail-quality apparel to the corporate market. Family members have worked together since 2007 to build Fossa Apparel into a leader in the promotional products industry. Each family member leans upon his or her individual strengths, and together they have built one of the most unique and desirable apparel companies found anywhere. This modest family business continues to grow and expand its footprint to be a trusted apparel brand with major distributor partners nationwide.

Our Future

Fossa Apparel has grown steadily over the past 16 years—even cracking the top 50 Supplier list in 2018. We firmly believe in our mission to bring innovative designs and thoughtfully made apparel to customers, and look forward to continuing for many years to come.
