OUR STORY

Discover the origins + evolution of the brand - a tale of passion, perseverance and timeless style.

20 YEARS OF STYLE: THE SANCTUARY JOURNEY

In 1997 Sanctuary was founded in Los Angeles by husband and wife team, Ken and Deb Polanco. With over 20 years of experience, Sanctuary has grown from master pant makers into a full women’s collection. Each collection captures the laid-back aesthetic of California, the effortless attitude of New York, and the adventurous spirit of the world to inspire and guide women through their 24/7 style.

"It's all about creating the life you want to live and giving back. We all need modern clothes to travel through the day. Let us help take you there."

— Deb Polanco, Co-Founder & Chief Creative Director
