Empowering manufacturers. Creating jobs. Transforming our city.

Rosmarie Ovian has always loved the sound of a sewing machine and the production process. Rosemarie began her 29 years of local manufacturing experience as an Assistant Manager at one of Koret’s San Francisco factories manufacturing women’s clothing. For the past 23 years she has been General Manager and then Co-Owner of Cut Loose, a company that began in the late 70’s, street-vending T-shirts and drawstring pants on Fisherman’s Wharf. At that time there were no changing rooms, the clothes were literally cut loose – one size fits all. They dyed their t-shirts in a Victorian claw-footed bathtub – and people loved them. Now, Cut Loose employs over 50 people, and has an extensive line of casual clothing that’s sewn and dyed to order in their San Francisco factory.
