Burlington, NC – Solid State Clothing is attending the Outdoor Retailer Snow Show in Denver, Colorado for the first time when it returns to in-person gathering January 26-28, 2022. Solid State will be showcasing its signature products—the North Carolina Cotton T-Shirt and its naturally dyed t-shirt line—and looking for retail brands interested in Made in USA apparel.
“Having Solid State Clothing at the OR Show gives us a platform to show our commitment to manufacturing the best t-shirts in the world based on our values of People and Planet,” says President Eric Henry. “We continue to look at sustainability as a journey, not a destination. We’re honored to connect directly with our customers as we continue to bring innovation to the apparel industry and create jobs in the US.”
The North Carolina T-Shirt Solid State will present at the OR Show traces back to Andrew Burleson, a third-generation farmer in North Carolina. Solid State Clothing made the limited edition tee with cotton bought from Burleson at a fair price. The tee is 100% cotton sourced directly from the farmer and made within 300 miles of Solid State’s home in Burlington, NC.
Solid State will also present its naturally dyed t-shirt line, which has no human carcinogens or toxic byproducts. Crafted in four beautiful plant-derived colors and sustainably made from US cotton, the naturally dyed tees are super-soft, long lasting, non-toxic, and completely biodegradable. Each has a unique QR code label so buyers can track every step of the manufacturing process.
“Solid State Clothing embraces classic American style and craftsmanship,” says Brand Manager Courtney Lockemer. “We’re not just creating high-quality clothing. We’re making unique, sustainable t-shirts that are crafted locally. We like to compare them to the heirloom tomatoes from the local farmer’s market, grown from seeds that are passed down from season to season, each fruit distinct. Our North Carolina Black Walnut shirt, for example, is made from cotton sourced from a single North Carolina farmer, manufactured within a few hundred mile radius, and dyed with walnuts we foraged and brewed locally. There’s nothing else like it out there.”
