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 HOLIDAY HAT:

I bought this for my grown daughter for Christmas. The featured hat was so cute, but I admit I was leery about purchasing it, because I would have no choice of hat style, and some of the reviews were iffy. But I took a chance, because the idea was so unique, and my daughter likes one-of-a-kind gifts. She sent me a photo of herself wearing it, and I was surprised the hat was not bad at all! Black background, with a single, large, white snowflake toward the crown area. She said "When I opened it, I cried! I wished I could have given you a big hug and said thank you in person." That's a successful gift in my book!

    Fun and funny

    Comments about HOLIDAY HAT:

    Our extended family is having an "ugly Christmas sweater" party, where everyone must wear one. At this party, there will also be a Yankee Swap, and I purchased this hat, made from an old Christmas sweater, as the swap gift. Totally appropriate. The one I got has a big bejeweled tree in the center of it. Well made, whimsical, and too funny.

    What a disappointment

    By 

    from Santa Cruz, CA

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about HOLIDAY HAT:

    This mix and match was a great idea, but it did not match. It wasn't even close!

    At these prices, I would have thought the staff would have used some taste in making sure the match was a good one.
