THE MAKINGSTEP 1. COTTON. America is the third biggest cotton-farming nation in the world. Nearly all of that cotton gets put on ships and is sent to China, India or somewhere else in Asia to be loomed into yarn, knit into fabric, sewn into clothes and then shipped back across the ocean for us to buy it as cheaply as possible. The result? Bye, bye American factory jobs.
Welcome to the antidote! We’re taking American cotton and keeping it America, more specifically right here in the Carolinas.
Pictured here is Andrew Burleson, a third generation farmer in New London, NC and one of the cotton growers behind our shirts, As a Solid State farming partner, he and his family will make nearly double on his crop, making it more likely he can pass his farm on to the next generation.
