The 7 Top Organic Clothing Brands Sourced and Made in USA
With the world's increased awareness of the health and environmental impacts of unfair labor practices, GMO crops and the toxicity of the pesticides to dyes used throughout the clothing industry, there has been a massive movement across the globe to bring about fair trade, eco-friendly farming, organic practices and healthier dyes. Click here for some fantastic articles on this.
A few years back when I first switched over to organic clothes they were priced much higher so I purchased one quality organic product instead of two or three of the non-organic cheaper ones. In a short period of time I realized that not only did I have a nice collection going but these items were lasting a lot longer, my body was breathing and my health was not at risk. When you add that altogether, man, you can really see how much more economical it is.
These days there are so many talented designers and a wide array of lovely organic clothing choices at very reasonable prices.
Further minimizing carbon footprints, there are a few incredibly ingenious business owners, here in our own back yard, who are producing the top organic clothing sourced and MADE IN USA. Click To Tweet
I along with all the Americans who have fair wage jobs fully appreciate their willingness and vigor in going the extra mile to accomplish this and so do the rest of the planet for minimizing their carbon footprints . I thank and want to validate them here with this highlight of their beautiful shops below.
“From the seed to the shirt, from the farm to the fabric” Asheville Apparel makes it all happen in the USA. They start with sourcing their fiber from the Texas Organic Growers Co-op. which then is spun, knit, finished and dyed in North and South Carolina. They use citrus for the natural dyes, peroxide wash from apples for their whites and non-radioactive, heavy metal free dyes for their colors. In regards to ethical fashion they love pushing the envelope and it is very apparent they do.
