One of One is more than a clothing company. It is a message. It is a movement. It is a mission.

Message:
 Be who you are. There is no one like you. You are One of One.

One of One is bigger than a brand and larger than a logo. One of One is a message of uniqueness, empowerment, love, and life.

Look at your hands. Your fingerprints sing a song of significance. There has never been and will never be another set of prints like yours. Although identical twins have the same DNA, their fingerprints are not the same.

We desire to echo what your hands already tell us. There is no one like you. You are One of One.

Movement:
 We desire to spark a movement loving who we are and loving others for who they are.

“In this life we cannot do great things. We can only do small things with great love.” –Mother Teresa

We believe that life brings life. When people step into the life they were created for, they bring life to those around them. We believe that being yourself actually helps those around you discover themselves.

Mission:
 We are committed to giving back to the community and to those in need. We support local, regional, and global causes.

We build partnerships with organizations that care deeply about poverty, disease, social-justice, and conflict. Through these partnerships we seek to make a significant difference in the lives of others.

Here is a list of organizations we are currently supporting:

History:

 In 1995, as a freshman in high school, Cesar Castillejos started hustling t-shirts in the stands at varsity football games. Selling t-shirts that looked illegally similar to those sold at Abercrombie & Fitch, Cesar found his place in clothing and sales. The t-shirt company folded and he moved on to selling lunch tickets and got a job at Sports Spree Fun Park, a local arcade and amusement paradise.

In college Cesar began spray painting stencils on shirts he purchased at thrift stores. “I wanted shirts that no one else could get.” He explains. “I didn’t think other people would actually want what I had. I just knew I had something they couldn’t get.”

After making custom shirts for a number of friends and strangers, Cesar decided to give the t-shirt game another shot. At first his desire was to make all one-of-a-kind pieces, hence the name “One of One Clothing Company.”
“I wanted everything to be one-of-a-kind, one of one. But I realized that it would cost too much and take too much time to do that.” He said. “I also realized that people are already one of one. People are already one-of-a-kind. They just need a little help realizing that.”

The name of the company stayed but the direction to a little turn. Instead of having a shirt that is one of one, Cesar wanted people to know they were one of one. The message he desired for people to hear became the tagline of the company, “Be who you are. There is no one like you. You are One of One.”

"That message is universal. Everyone is one of one. Everyone has their own story. Everyone has their own voice. But too many people spend too much time trying to be someone they aren’t. I want people to find themselves and discover their unique place in the world. If we can help one person discover their true self, I think we’re doing good. We might not be able to change the world but if we can make a world of difference in someone’s life, it’s our responsibility to do so. Starting One of One was my response to that reality. I hope other people vibe with the vision of One of One and join the movement."                                                              -C. Castillejos
