After spending over a year learning about how clothes are made, who makes them, and the environmental impact of our daily fashion, we have decided to produce {r}evolution apparel in the most sustainable way we know how. 

Our signature piece is made in the USA, using 50% recycled cotton (from factory cutting-room floors) and 50% recycled water bottles. The fabric is manufactured in North Carolina, and that's where the sewing happens, too. Our buttons are American-made (with wood grown in Vermont), and our drawstrings and labels are manufactured in the USA with GOTS-certified organic cotton. Oh, and those washing instructions, printed on the inside of your Versalette? Those were made in USA, too.

From start to finish, we are creating an American brand that reduces space in landfills and makes the most of the waste we produce. 

In the future, we hope to move towards even more sustainable methods of production. We know that there is no such thing as a “no impact” garment, but we also know that our footprint can be improved, and we're always looking for ways to make our products kinder.

FABRIC | Made in North Carolina from a recycled blend -- 50% recycled plastic bottles, and 50% recycled cotton scraps. The colors are derived from the recycled cotton scraps, so the fabric itself isn't dyed -- skipping the harsh chemical dye process, resulting effluents, and gallons of water typically used to dye fabric. Spinning, knitting, and finishing happens within a 200-mile radius. 

BUTTONS | Made in Brooklyn, New York with wood grown in Rutland, Vermont. The wood comes from Norwegian Birch trees, and is then impregnated with a black veneer to get the dark coloring. No polish was added to the buttons.

DRAWSTRINGS | Made in the USA with GOTS-certified organic cotton, grown in Turkey. Dyed in Raleigh, North Carolina with fiber-reactive dyes by Fiberactive Organics, a socially- and environmentally-conscious small business.

LABELS | Made in the USA with GOTS-certified organic cotton, grown in Turkey. Embroidered in Austin, Texas by small business owner, Tracy Wenzel, of The Dancing Needle.
