ThinkNW Member Check-In Recap: Portland Garment Factory

Portland Garment Factory’s niche is not having a niche. Founded in 2008, PGF serves the greater Portland community, larger corporations, and everything in-between. Their specialities include prototypes, seeding kits, swag, textile sourcing, retail environments, and much more.

The beauty is that nothing is off the table for brands and agencies looking to make a huge impact with something unique.

We checked in with Britt Howard, Founder of Portland Garment Factory, to go over her favorite projects of the past year, plus some insight on what it takes to excel as a creative and as a business owner. 

In this session, we gained insight on the genius behind Britt’s ability to grow PGF through the ethical standards the company lives by as a B Corp, as well as the care and innovation it takes to create with zero-waste and sustainability always in mind.

Take a look at the full video and takeaways below:
