organic, made in the usa workwear

Posted: September 12 2012

We like this idea. Let's show them some support!

Totem Industries on Kickstarter
Totem Industries is a small company out of Boulder, CO, with the goal of getting good people into cool and durable clothes at a reasonable cost.  We have been manufacturing clothing domestically since our inception in 2004.
We started as a backcountry ski company, making hemp ski pants, hemp ski backpacks, and recycled softshell jackets.
We are now focused on making clothing for everyday life, which is why we are so excited to introduce our new line of organic workwear.
Our Story
-We use only recycled, natural, and organic fabrics.  If the fabric doesn't have a cool story, we won't use it.  By using organic fabrics, we eliminate the need for toxic chemicals, which is better for both farmers and the land.
-We design everything in Boulder, CO, and manufacture only in the United States.  It is really important to us to manufacture domestically; it allows us to manufacture in smaller quantities, reduce shipping and transportation costs, and work closely with our manufacturers.  It also allows us to do custom clothing runs with special features for customers who want to order in bulk.  We love the idea of knowing our sewers' names and being directly involved in the manufacturing process.
These simple principles make our products a little more expensive, but we feel that making a responsible choice is worth it.
 This Kickstarter campaign is based on 4 products.
-The Jack Workshirt - 7 oz organic cotton twill, coconut shell buttons, recycled velcro
-The Nomad Workpant - Our heavy duty workpant.  10 oz organic cotton, double knee construction, utility side pocket, reinforced rear pockets.
-The Townie Pant - This is our everyday pant.  Just like the Nomad, but without any of the "heavy duty" aspects.  This is the pant to wear to the office, dinner, the bar, and everywhere in between
-The Townie Short - Same as the Townie pant, only shorter.
