I Wanna Hold Your Hand

Warm your hands and your heart with these cozy peace, love and happiness mittens. Feeling just like your favorite sweater, these mittens are made from leftover material collected from apparel and upholstery factories that would otherwise be discarded. Made of 75% recycled cotton, 25% acrylic. Made in the USA by Green 3.

Please note: the patterns for the mittens are intentionally random and will vary. Consistent with the use of recycled materials, each is created by maximum fabric utilization resulting in minimal excess waste.

Due to their seasonal nature, these items have been discontinued and are sold out.


SORRY, PEACE, WINKY SMILE, AND HEART ARE NO LONGER AVAILABLE.

Exclusively for UncommonGoods

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 Mittens:

Love the design and materials, however, they only came in one-size-fits-all and they are way too big for my paws. It is difficult to find mittens these days, I detest gloves. So, they will be adjusted to fit.

        They're pretty, but the seams on the inside are uncomfortable. They were a gift, and I kept them and gave them, but I thought the seams were a problem.

              Peace mittens

              By 

              from chicago

              Verified Buyer

              Comments about Recycled Cotton Mittens:

              I was really excited for these peace sign gloves to come in the mail. I love uncommon goods. All of their stuff is different and fun. I have to say I was a little disappointed with these gloves. Because they are from recycled materials, their wasn't one peace sign on the glove that actually looked like a peace sign. I still think they are very comfy. They have a cute color too. If I was going to buy them again, I probably wouldn't get the peace sign. If they had one peace sign it would of made all the difference.
