We’re Late Sunday Afternoon, a small lifestyle company with a shop in Venice Beach, California. We sew all our products in our shop. We also collaborate with our creative friends to bring you unique gifts for you and your family.
MADE IN HOUSE
We’ve been making everything ourselves since 2012. We work with dead-stock fabrics from Downtown LA that we transform into scarves, ascots, pocketsquares and more in our factory/shop on Lincoln Blvd.
In case you are new to the scarf game, we made a little video to show you how to wear your scarf in a variety of ways:
KNOTTED & BLESSED
One day we started tying knots on the ends of our scarves and blessing them to Love, Happiness, Adventure, and Mystery. As we sew each scarf we imagine the people that will one day wear them and the adventures they will go on. We see the blessings as a reminder to all of us that we get to cultivate the attributes we want our lives to have.
WE GIVE BACK
TO OUR COMMUNITY
We want our company to be a force for good in the world, and specifically in our local community. Our scarves are amazing because they are Knotted & Blessed, and they feel like a warm hug when you wear them. We wanted to create that experience for kids going through difficult times in their lives. We partnered with LA’s Department of Children and Family Services to create a special Nest Blankie to be given to kids as they enter the foster care system. Each blankie is handmade and one of a kind, with a special blessing for the kids and their future:
VERY DOG FRIENDLY
We collect all our scraps from sewing and stuff them into coffee sacks to create dog beds for the Maeday Foundation, a local dog rescue organization. This allows us to run a waste-free business while looking out for our four legged friends.
WE'RE ON A MISSION
TO DO THINGS DIFFERENT
Our goal is to be an example of a new paradigm in business. We want our company to create amazing products without being a burden on the planet. We want to make money so we can share the wealth with our crew and our maker friends. We believe that a rising tide lifts all ships.
WE BELIEVE IN
A UNITED PEOPLE
We will only be able to overcome the forces of environmental destruction, capitalistic greed, militarism, poverty, racism, and every other societal ill by joining together and reclaiming the power of the people. Global consciousness is the key to our salvation as a species. At LSA we want to be a powerful force for this unification, and this desire guides all of our decisions as people and as a company.
