OUR HISTORY AND LEGACY
VIBES BASE ENTERPRISES INC. seeks affirm diversity of ethnicity, body type, and socioeconomic level by building brands that supply quality, fashion, and fit to all communities. We do so through technical innovation, fashionable design, resonate branding, and unwavering attention to detail.
Our roots run deep in manufacturing, where we started before incorporating our company in the US as a brand in 2001. Our unique vertical manufacturing has refined the creative process, enabling us to quickly and efficiently bring quality, taste-making fashion and fit to the marketplace. Starting as a manufacturer and wholesale provider of reasonably priced denim and active kit sportswear, we attracted thousands specialty stores and small chains nationwide. Between our manufacturing capabilities to provide competitively priced merchandise and growing reputation among retailers, we were empowered to expand into private label and original design manufacturing business. Today, our strategic commitment to evolve from an apparel manufacturer to a premier e-commerce retailer of branded products ultimately targeted to the consumer has set us apart. We understand both the needs of consumers and vendors of product better than ever before.
