About Us

A note from Nesha, chicka-d and UG Apparel’s CEO.
We started our company almost 13 years ago, with the goal to  create everyday pieces that everybody would want to live in.  We focus on creating the softest and coziest styles,  utilizing elevated fabrics with unique garment washes. 
As our company has grown over the years,  so has our mission and commitment to be socially responsible.  Our items are manufactured in all socially compliant and audited factories,  providing a living wage to the surrounding communities.
Chicka-d and UG Apparel’s roots are in the collegiate licensed industry,  and in recent years, our business has expanded to  the resort wear, boutique, and custom markets.  We’d love to work with you for your custom needs!
We are a women-owned business based in Austin, TX.
