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.

    Comments about Recycled Cotton Animal Mittens- Raccoon and Fox:

    Bought these for the guy I'm dating, I guess it's a good thing his hands are larger than mine cause these are huge! I tried them on and was glad I had decided not to get a pair for myself.

    They aren't as soft as I expected but are still better than I really thought they'd be.

    They were my back-up plan and I'm a little happy my first plan didn't work out. So yeah, these are worth it, mostly cause they're super adorable.

      I gave the hat and mittens as gifts, but kept the scarf for myself and love it. I agree that the mittens run large, not big enough to return them.

        Comments about Recycled Cotton Animal Mittens- Raccoon and Fox:

        These mittens match the scarf I bought before the holidays so was looking forward to getting them They are very cute but there is no way that they will fit my hands. They are listed as one size fits all but I'm not sure that they would fit most women. I'll need to look into return policies and whether it makes sense to return or gift to a larger handed friend in the future ;)

        As a side note, I love the fox scarf, it's warm and perfect!

          It was a Christmas gift for my daughter and she loved them. They are so cute and comfortable. Kind of pricey, but they are a recycled product, so I didn't feel that bad about spending the money.

            I bought this for my sister-in-law, and it was a lot softer than I imagined, and just as adorable as in the photos! I'll probably come back to buy similar ones, since my roommate & I thought theses were fantastic.

              Cute animal mittens are made for bear paws--so big they fell off my hands. They're poorly sized and had to be returned.
