It's always our mission to keep our team members up to date with everything going on in Detroit. This summer, Threads will be highlighting the latest initiatives of local apparel and accessory businesses.
To kick things off, we’re focusing on three local businesses that manufacture their garments within the city we love. These brands all have sustainability top of mind with production, so with each purchase, you'll always be consuming consciously.
Object Apparel is a sustainable clothing company located in Detroit. Object Apparel designs and produces modern basics from organic and ethically sourced textiles. Mike Skelenka and Mollie Decker built the brand to create well-constructed clothing that's inspired by their backgrounds in art and architecture. They design, pattern, cut, dye, sew and screen-print everything right here in Detroit.
Our attention is brought to Object Apparel's new collection with garments made from organic cotton and hemp fabrics in lightweight silhouettes. This collection also features two new colorways in the product line up: indigo and dijon. These new colorways and prints were created using their iconic in-house dye process using natural, non-toxic dyes. Check out more about Object Apparel's new collection here.
Rosemarine Textiles is a sustainable textile studio founded by Meghan Navoy. This woman-owned small business creates products in-house in Detroit. The brand is a completely eco-friendly production for home goods and accessories. Rosemarine exclusively uses plant dyes and produces zero waste.
Rosemarine has a couple new collections that have been catching our eye. First, their newest collection of linen tank tops. The tops are plant dyed and made from 100% linen fabric scraps. These tops are available in indigo, mauve and sand colorways. The bust measurements of these tanks are 32", 34" and 38" but they are very flowy and have adjustable tie straps for more flexible sizing.
We're also loving Rosemarine's new pillow collection launch. The pillows are made from heavyweight linen fabric scraps for both structure and decoration. The linen is naturally dyed, 18x18" and comes with an organic cotton pillow insert. Check them out here.
York Project is a clothing brand that specializes in elevated basics, made right here in Detroit. York Project focuses on transparent, ethical manufacturing and giving back to the city. York Project prioritizes giving back by donating a portion of their profits to our community and volunteering monthly to help those in need.
We're loving York Project's newest addition to their traveler collection, the women’s logo hoodie. This hoodie pairs perfectly with their Summit Leggings that are sewn in Detroit and made from recycled water bottles. See more about this hoodie here.
