Cheap sweatshop-made duds may soon be a thing of the past.
Being isolated during the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way lots of folks think about the things they buy and use. Many people have discovered they don’t need a closet full of inexpensive sweaters when two or three sustainably made pullovers fit and look better, last longer, and take up less space. Ramblers Way, a sustainable clothing company based in Maine, has become a leader in the “slow fashion” movement by taking a holistic approach to manufacturing clothing. The company, founded by Tom and Kate Chappell of Tom’s of Maine toothpaste fame, sources organic wool and cotton from the US when possible, makes its own fabric, and manufactures all its clothing in America.
