Committed to Responsible Manufacturing
Having learned the art of screen printing, I've modified the process by adapting it to eco-friendly practices. Instead of relying on UV exposure units and electricity, I expose screens using natural sunlight during the daytime.
In alignment with our dedication to sustainability, all prints are created using water-based inks that are free from harmful VOCs, PVC, and other toxic substances. Our commitment extends to the selection of materials—we proudly offer USA-milled fabrics and certified imported organic blends. These textiles adhere to stringent environmental and Worldwide Responsible Apparel Production guidelines, with organic certifications from respected bodies such as IMO, Control Union, OCIA, NOP, or Ecocer. Additionally, we use low-impact, fiber-reactive dyes for the dyeing process.
A majority of our fabrics are sourced and milled in the USA, clearly indicated on product pages. We prioritize large quantity orders to minimize our shipping footprint and ensure a consistent product supply.
Emphasizing quality over quantity, we engage in small-batch, in-house production. This not only eliminates unnecessary inventory and overstock but also allows for meticulous attention to detail in every garment we offer.
