First Rite was launched in 2015 by designer Nikki Garcia out of San Francisco, CA. She describes the line as minimal and modern, with an even balance of pieces that nod to both menswear and classic femininity. The focus is on simple shapes that create an ongoing series of interchangeable sets both within the same collection and from season to season so that the line can be thought of as one large collection of timeless pieces that can be worn throughout the year. The cut and sew collections are designed using high quality textiles from naturally derived fibers and all garments are produced in Los Angeles, CA. The sweaters are made by a woman owned and operated factory in Peru.
