Cloth Foundry

We make textiles to be worn by people

Our fabric is designed to be in direct contact with our bodies. Produced with clean green ingredients such as cotton, a carbohydrate, real botanicals like indigo dye and minerals, for example calcium carbonate, the main component of pearls and eggshells; it is our belief that textiles and apparel should be made with the same consideration as food — naturally, and with nothing we can’t consume. What’s on our bodies should be just as good as what we put in them.

Grown to sewn in our own backyard — an all American supply chain

We start with a transparent local supply chain that considers the ecological and social footprint of our product development. From farm to fashion, each aspect of production has been designed to meet the highest ethical standards. No toxins are added during yarn and cloth production or garment manufacturing. This means no harmful chemicals are released into the air or onto the skin of our supply chain partners, their employees, or you, the consumer.

Grown in: California → Yarn Spun in: North Carolina → Milled in: California → Botanically Dyed, Cut and Sewn in: California

Crafted in California

We reverse engineer our product development, whether it's for our textiles and apparel, or a hoodie for The North Face Backyard Project. We start with the end goal in mind: well designed, pure and eco clothes, from certified fiber to textile treatments; a triple bottom line sustainable supply chain for A Healthy Wardrobe®.

Sourcing all our natural materials, manufacturers, and mills domestically, our work has positively impacted over 100 US jobs including Gary Martin's, our Cleaner Cotton™ producer in California’s Central Valley, seen here with founder Lydia Wendt.

Every product is designed to be cared for, repaired, and passed on–not landfilled. It is our hope that after a long life of use, it can be composted worry free.
