How It's Made Matters
At Synergy, we believe that it matters how your clothing is made. We believe that consumers deserve the choice to buy clothing they feel good about wearing with the knowledge of where and how it was produced. From our home base in Santa Cruz, California to our handwork seamstresses in the Kathmandu Valley of Nepal, our Synergy family is part of a global community with purpose. We believe in creating high quality goods by supporting the well-being of those who make our business possible.
Our clothing begins with GOTS certified organic cotton grown and loomed into fabric in India. Organic cotton is grown using methods and materials that have a lower impact on the environment than conventionally grown cotton such as not using toxic pesticides or synthetic fertilizers and without using genetically engineered seed. 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.
Each garment is ethically sewn in a GOTS certified factory by men and women who are paid a living wage for their work. Every Synergy Organic Clothing garment sewn by a well-trained man or woman tells a story of skill, craftsmanship, and care. By treating our employees with respect we create garments that are not only high quality, but that are empowering the people who made them.
From our home base in Santa Cruz, California to our handwork seamstresses in the Kathmandu Valley of Nepal, our Synergy family is part of a global community with purpose. By supporting businesses around the world that grow and loom our fabric, cut and sew our garments, and pack and finish the goods to be shipped to our warehouse, we are empowering a global economy and helping those businesses grow and develop just as they help us grow and develop.
We believe that consumers deserve the choice to buy clothing that they feel good about wearing with the knowledge of where and how it was produced. We strive to empower consumers to make more purposeful choices in the clothing they buy and wear. Ethical fashion is about more than just clothing, it is casting a vote for the type of future you want for the world and the people who live on it.
When you purchase a Synergy Organic Clothing garment, the story doesn't end there. Your garment was made by someone who was paid a living wage, while being protected from unsafe working conditions, and toxic chemicals. Through treating our employees well, we believe that the future of these communities will be brighter and more prosperous. With your purchase, you are helping us give back to those communities in Nepal and India that have given so much to us already.
