We have new friends in TEXAS...Yes, We do.. 

A few years ago. I set out on a journey. "Healing". Prior to knowing what was making me ill. I decided to make changes. One of the best things I decided to do was attempt to remove the chemicals from our food and home that could be affecting our health. This included what we put on our skin, hair, and what we used to clean with, etc I haven't completed this goal. We are still working on it.

So, when I set out to print our designs. I looked for people-friendly and eco-friendly inks and I would say

"I really want our T-shirts to be "Made in the USA" with cotton grown organically." "I want to be able to trace the path of our Tees from the cotton on the farm to our customers "

It seemed to be a huge goal. I wanted   "Farm to Fashion" or "Dirt to Shirt". I would smile as people would usually give me a blank stare and encourage me with a "Good Luck with that!" 

Well, today I am so excited to introduce you to our new friends in Texas, The Oldham Family will be providing us with the T-shirts and other products. 

"Organic Cotton Grown in Samnorwood, Texas

They have been certified organic by the Texas Department of Agriculture since 1992

Thank you Gary and Family for your courage and dedication to creating just the tee I was looking for. Thank you for excepting us to share your products.

We will be adding them to our "Shop" in the very near future. I just couldn't wait to share.

Meet the Oldham Family and Watch The production of an organic cotton T-shirt showing the processes of farming, ginning, knitting and sewing. Then shipped to us, I still can't believe it.

The process is quite interesting. Great music choice, if you ask me.
