Why Choose Us?

Rooted in the city that never sleeps was acquired in 2018 by Novato to enhance customer experience with a wider fabric selection and in-house production. The company has since grown and now collaborates with talented in-house designers to create vibrant, personalized jerseys and apparel. As of 2024, CSJ has rebranded as KALOWAN, expanding its sportswear lines and focusing on delivering premium service to customers.

Our Story

Novato was founded by Angel Lopez, inspired by his mother, a skilled seamstress who instilled in him a passion for craftsmanship. Recognizing a market gap, Angel started “Novato,” meaning “new” in Latin, to offer high-quality, custom-designed sports apparel. Reflecting the innovative nature of sublimation printing, each order provided customers with a refreshing experience. Angel’s vision included exceptional service through in-house design and prompt shipping, honoring his mother’s legacy by creating top-quality sports apparel for a new generation.

Years later, Novato’s evolution into KALOWAN signified a bold step under Larry Chen’s leadership. With a deep volleyball passion and dedication to customer service, Larry aims to transcend boundaries by offering unique, personalized sports apparel. His vision goes beyond clothing, aiming to deliver comfortable, lightweight sports apparel with vibrant designs that reflect athleticism and inspire pride in every athlete.

"The shirts completely exceeded our expectations and were received earlier than the guarantee date."

"I told Angel that he's come up with a nice design, great uniforms so we're on board and I'm proud to be standing next to him."
