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 - Skunk and Mink:

These gloves aren't as thick or soft as I expected; in fact, they're pretty thin and a little stiff. I thought about sending 'em west to a friend in Cali who runs up to the mountains for fun, but even she'd wanna play in the snow and these aren't THOSE type of gloves. Still, they're cute and I got them on sale. So, I'll wear 'em to make a statement ... but, only when I know I won't be outside for very long.

Service and delivery comments:

I ordered this stuff last Friday? Maybe Thursday? And got everything packed in (1) box - thank you! - this morning (Wednesday). I'd say that was a quick turnaround.

Comments about Recycled Cotton Animal Mittens - Skunk and Mink:

These cute mittens wouldn't protect hands from the bite of a New England winter, but were perfect for the milder climes of North Carolina.

Comments about Recycled Cotton Animal Mittens - Skunk and Mink:

I got these skunk mittens for my daughter after she fell in love with them when browsing the catalog. They are so unique and eye-catching, and the eyes give them so much personality! I'm so impressed with the quality, the design, the value, and the fact that they came gift boxed although I truly do not recall checking that box. What pretty packaging! Thanks Uncommon Goods. You will not be disappointed with these adorably cool mittens.
