Solid State Clothing makes classic, premium-quality t-shirts made with 100% U.S.-grown cotton. Solid State shirts are meticulously crafted to be the best damn t-shirt on Earth: super-soft, garment dyed, pre-shrunk, and durably constructed for years of wear. But Solid State shirts aren’t just about exceptional quality; they're about creating products rooted in local community and history.
All of Solid State Clothing's t-shirts start with cotton from American farms. They're manufactured in North and South Carolina within a 250-mile radius of the company's home in Burlington, NC. Each includes a unique QR code that lets wearers trace every step of the making, from farm to closet.
Since the brand's launch in 2020, it has created shirts from cotton purchased directly from a 3rd-generation North Carolina farmer and released a limited-edition color shirt dyed with locally-foraged black walnuts.
Solid State was founded by TS Designs, a certified B Corp which has a long history with the triple-bottom-line model, sustainability, and domestic t-shirt manufacturing.
