We are so excited to announce our recent collaboration with Appalatch Clothing. Appalatch told us, “One glaring place that we would love to improve upon is the use of natural instead of synthetic dyes which we know is more toxic to people and the environment. Unfortunately, we haven’t found an American industrial dye house that can consistently deliver naturally dyed clothes to us…. that is until we spoke with Botanical Colors. Because Botanical Colors has relationships with industrial dye houses that uses their dyes, we can implement natural dying of our clothing for the first time! Dyes, which are often made far overseas, can now come from plants harvested locally. This fits in perfectly with our completely localized, ethically built supply chain!”
We’re glad the connection was made too.
Check out all the beautiful work they do here and check out the interview we had with them below.
Where only 2% of clothing is made in the U.S. vs 80% 20 years ago, how are you able to find these makers?
Does creating slow fashion, heirloom pieces hamper your profits in that people don’t need to buy from you as often?
How hopeful are you about the future of U.S. manufacturing?
