THE CAYSON DESIGNS STORY
In 1992, Lynette and the late Eddie Cayson founded Cayson Designs with a passion to create high quality culinary garments and a vision to provide unmatched customer service. These strong roots as a family run business have anchored our ambitious growth over the past 24 years.
Our sewing factory and office have always been located in our hometown of San Francisco, California. All of our products are designed and constructed on-site by our dedicated, creative and talented team.
In 2016, Lynette partnered with A+ Career and School Apparel, another family run business based in Burlingame, California. For more than 40 years, A+ has provided high-performance uniforms and hospitality apparel to customers nationwide. The A+ team has extensive knowledge in both large and small scale manufacturing as well as design and embroidery experience. We are excited to partner with them to open the door for new avenues of growth for Cayson Designs. Karie La Mountain, our fearless General Manager, will be leading the Cayson Designs team in this new chapter.
A+ shares our commitment to providing top quality garments with outstanding service. Cayson Designs’ high quality products will continue to be designed and manufactured in our San Francisco office and sewing workshop.

We never lose sight of our guiding promise to build our business with the same honesty and integrity we use to craft our products.
