Production

These sweatshirts are sewn by Nana Atelier and dyed by Green Matters Natural Dye Company.

 

Nana Atelier is an outlier in Los Angeles; they are proving that non-piece-rate, full time, and benefits provided work can flourish in the garment district. Here, garment workers are paid $14-20 an hour compared to UCLA's published average of $5.15 in Los Angeles. It is a beautiful space with a wonderful team that has an expertise in single stitch construction. Learn more about their work by clicking here. 

 

Green Matters Natural Dye Company is a seven person team in Pennsylvania pioneering botanical pigments for small batch production. They rely on rain water collection for powering their dyes, and convert their dye remnants into fertilizer for local farms. Learn more about their work by clicking here.

Circularity

SWEATSHIRT

From yarn to tag, our sweatshirts are made with cotton. When a product is developed, its fiber composition and trim complexity will dictate if and how we can up/downcycle the garment at end of life. The absence of synthetic trims and thread allows for the sweatshirt to be mechanically broken down. Opposed to the chemical alternative (many garments are too complex for even this), this cotton will easily be shredded and spun into a new yarn.

 

When your sweatshirt reaches an unwearable state, please email support@ground-cover.com to recycle. We will not accept any hoodies which are functional or easily repairable. Though, we are happy to help with the latter! It is important that this circular system is not abused and products are designed to last. Read more about circular fashion by clicking here.

 

PACKAGING

Our sweatshirts are delivered in a 100% organic cotton produce bag. These are grown, milled, and made in Mexico. The thread is also cotton so all of the above applies. They are then shipped in a post-consumer kraft mailer. Please reuse these until rendered functionless. Then, recycle or compost.
