Proudly Made in the USA

We are lucky to call the Bay Area home and are honored to design and manufacture all Cayson garments in our San Francisco workshop since 1992. Cayson is the standard for quality, and we are confident our garments will stand the test of time. Our team is passionate about designing for style, comfort, and functionality while delivering exceptional customer service. We build our business on relationships and referrals, and look forward to working with you and exceeding your expectations.

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 unparalleled customer service. They created the business with a straightforward philosophy and ethical code that we live and work by today. 

The Cayson baton was passed along to the Knoss family in 2016. We are honored to continue the Cayson legacy as a family-run, handcrafted in the USA garment manufacturing business that is wholeheartedly committed to a healthy, happy, and balanced workplace.
