you gift, you give

“you don’t have to choose between doing well and doing good”

- umano co-founders, jonathan + alex torrey


at umano, we like to dream big and do stuff that makes the world a better place, and we are extra proud to be part of something bigger and give the gift that gives back this season. 

every product purchased fuels our virtuous cycle: we start with a Giving Trip. then we gather kids’ drawings and showcase them as works of art. this Kartwork (kids + Artwork) is more than a drawing, it’s a badge of honor. and with every product you purchase, we hand-deliver a backpack full of art supplies to empower a kid.

giving, backpack, tiny hands


we have the privilege of experiencing the effects of conscious consumerism first hand.

we get to see the look on a kid’s face when we hand-deliver their umano backpack, see the smiles and hear their awesome stories!


the more you gift, the more you give! freakishly-soft and freakishly-thoughtful tees shipped in our limited-edition holiday boxes for everyone on your list.

 join us in shopping smarter this year (because we all know that the best gifts give back!) choosing Kartwork (kid's + Artwork) is hard, so the team has picked a few of our favorite umano products that make great gifting options.


for the girls, we choose:

THE BEAR melange longsleeve tee: this is one of our c.e.bro alex's favorites. his family nickname since he was a kid was “oso” (spanish for bear). drawn by umano Artist, Amar, THE BEAR lets your girl channel both her inner teddy + grizzly.

THE WADDLE fleece black sweatshirt: this sweatshirt has a slouchy and relaxed fit for an effortlessly cool look your girl will love (and cuddle up in all winter long!)

THE TINY DANCER track pants: from our bigger, and bolder classics collection, these freakishly-soft track pants are perfect for the cold winter temps so you can look cool + stay warm.


for the dudes:

THE SYLVESTER classic tee: drawn by umano Artist, Sadie Leigh, is a serious crowd pleaser. get this one for the foxy guys in your life.

THE PB-N-J classic tee: this tee was recently featured in refinery 29’s gift guide for men! the best things come in pairs (tom and jerry, batman and robin, lennon and mccartney to name a few) and THE PB-N-J x Kidist is no exception. get this one for the peanut butter to your jelly!

THE WISHBONE classic tee: drawn by eighteen year old umano Artist, Scottie. he plans to study business, cause he’s “a boneified hustler.” get one for all the bad-to-the-bone dudes you know.


holiday box, THE BEAR


an umano tee might not change the world, but all big waves start with small ripples.
