Growing up, Michigan farm girl Sandy Martin witnessed first-hand the the health repercussions of conventional farming with pesticides. Later, when she worked in the apparel industry, she saw how some manufacturers negatively affected the environment and communities where they operated. So with the help of her husband Jim, Sandy founded an apparel company based on honesty, environmental awareness, and high-quality American-made designs. Their manufacturing process is completely green and uses no PVCs, plastisols, heavy-metal inks, or chlorinated bleaches. They reclaim waste fabric from their own production, from other garment makers, and from thrift stores and give these cast-offs new life in creative items like T-shirt scarves. Headquartered in a 19th century horse carriage terminal on the shores of Lake Winnebago in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, the Martins' operation is dedicated to creating apparel jobs both there and throughout the U.S. They also work with Aspiro, a non-profit in Green Bay, Wisconsin that specializes in teaching job skills to cognitively disabled adults. Some of the Martins' designs are cut and sewn by adults in the program, promoting independent living.

Clever idea but disappointed

Pros

  • Casual Wear

Comments about Reclaimed Holiday Sweater Scarf:

I was very excited when I found this. I bought three of these: one for my sister, mom, and myself. I thought it would be great to wear to holiday parties or events and a fun talking point. I had hoped the scarf would be more festive; maybe I ordered them too late, or it must have been the last parts of sweaters. There were several panels that were plain black, blue, or white with no designs on each scarf. I also thought they'd be thicker/warmer, but they are soft. If you're looking for something tame, this is for you.

      Comments about Reclaimed Holiday Sweater Scarf:

      I should have bought this scarf a year ago but I held off. I regretted that decision all year (I mean, how often do you come across a scarf like this...) so finally bought it once holidays rolled around again.

      I LOVE IT. Tons of compliments from friends/strangers.

      My only complaint is that it's very thin. I would have put another layer in between the top/bottom layers so it was a bitt thicker (and warmer). But other than that, it's adorable.

            Everything old is new again! This festive scarf will be your new favorite tradition for all your Christmas festivities. Ugly Sweater Party--check. Tree Trimming--check. Christmas Caroling--check. The scarf dresses up and goes casual. The thin width keeps the holiday patterns from feeling overwhelming. A real conversation piece you can wear.

            Comments about Reclaimed Holiday Sweater Scarf:

            I bought three of these scarves on sale as gifts for next Christmas and both my husband and I thought they were great. Now I have to keep one for myself and I'm ordering two more. They are lightweight enough to be comfortable, but the sweater material makes them good for warmth, too. I live in Texas so lightweight is more practical for that month of cold weather we get (off and on) and I can get away with it for the holidays. The only con so far since I haven't washed them or even worn it, is that there is no choice of design though it's understood being made from recycled materials, which is another reason why they are so great and some designs are upside down that you'd rather weren't. I'm loving the gift idea!!

              Comments about Reclaimed Holiday Sweater Scarf:

              I was hoping for something more colorful and festive -- my boyfriend has a tacky Christmas sweater that he likes to wear, and I wanted to get him this scarf as a substitute. But the one I received is pretty tame -- the luck of the draw, I guess, but I don't think he's going to find this a very interesting or fun gift. It has no fun patterns or pictures like the ones in the pictures, nor does it have any of "your favorite holiday characters" (as the description implies that it will). I will still give it to him, but my guess is that he will probably want to return it. Also, the backing material doesn't feel very comfortable -- it's like a thin, scratchy t-shirt. It's just not worth the price. It would be nice if you could specify that you'd like a more colorful one or one with a figure like a snowman or a reindeer on it.
