THE JOURNEY OF A SYNERGY GARMENT
Synergy Organic Clothing takes its commitment to sustainability seriously. We strive to be mindful and conscious in every facet of our business. Each Synergy piece takes a journey around the world, positively affecting everyone involved. We are deeply grateful to each and every one of our customers who allow us to be a force for good around the world. It all starts in a design studio in Santa Cruz, California, where Kate Fisher, Co-Owner and Art Director of Synergy, dreams up all of the designs. Kate looks to the world around in her approach to design. Synergy was created in the spirit of adventure and with the vision of being a synergy of both Eastern and Western design influences. We source our organic cotton from India. Organic cotton is grown using methods and materials that have a lower impact on the environment than conventionally grown cotton. The cotton is grown without toxic pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, and genetically modified seeds. All of our fabrics are also made with low-impact dyes. These dyes have a high absorption rate, which decreases the use of rinse water and produces less waste. Then it's off to Nepal where our clothing is produced. We have a close and long standing relationship with our manufacturers in Nepal. Our appliqué designs are individually hand sewn by skilled crafts-women in Nepal. We adhere to employment guidelines set forth by fair labor organizations through advocating higher salaries and never employing child labor. The production of our appliqués empowers this group of 150 women with the ability to work from home, support their families with the living wage income earned and gives a sense of pride and independence. Then it's all back to where it started. Our warehouse in Santa Cruz is the distribution hub for the whole country. There, our crack team of Organic Clothing Experts pack and ship your orders with love and care. Wether you're buying Synergy online, at a festival or in a store, you can feel proud that you are supporting the livelihood of the worldwide community that is Synergy Organic Clothing.
