About Us

Our vision at Sanctuary is to be a globally recognized women’s inclusive lifestyle brand that delivers quality and relevant products at an accessible price point, while also keeping sustainability top of mind.

In 1997, our co-founders Ken and Debra Polanco introduced Sanctuary to the fashion marketplace. With over 20 years of experience, the successful husband and wife team has grown the brand from master pant makers into a full women’s collection. Our unique designs take a modern yet timeless approach to styling with a handcrafted focus on detail. Each collection captures the laid-back aesthetic of California, effortless attitude of New York and the adventurous spirit of the world to inspire and guide women through their 24/7 style.

Today, our corporate headquarters is located in Los Angeles with supporting sales offices in Los Angeles and New York. Outside of SanctuaryClothing.com, customers can shop our styles at retailers such as Nordstrom, Macy’s, Bloomingdale’s, Anthropologie, REVOLVE, Rent the Runway, El Palacio de Hierro (Mexico) as well as specialty stores across the U.S., and Canada.

Our clothes are ageless. It’s always about attitude and style.
