While shopping at your local retailer or online, have you noticed how difficult it has become to find women’s clothing made in the USA? It seems that everything is made somewhere other than America, but there are still fashion brands whose products are created by local manufacturers.

Peace of Cloth was founded in 2006 and has established this very principle to empower local businesses by not outsourcing to other countries. Every garment is proudly produced in New York City with strong emphasis on fit and function, providing high quality products for women’s sportswear in association with the same local factories since 1991. We are dedicated to making a positive influence in the lives of others through fashion and philanthropic endeavors. Our work has included various partnerships with non-profit organizations, such as the 18 years we have committed to working with Dress For Success, who have helped over 900,000 women and their 2.5 million children across the globe.

Why is what we do important?

Benefits of Purchasing Women’s Clothing Made in America

  1. Many foreign labor standards allow unsafe working conditions in countries throughout the world. When you buy from us you support not just American manufacturers, but also safe working conditions and child labor laws.
  2. The manufacturing processes in the US are much cleaner for the environment than many other countries. So much of the clothing sold in the US is produced in countries using dangerous and heavily polluting factories. When you purchase from Peace of Cloth, you know that you're helping to keep the world become less polluted for our future generations.
  3. By working with local manufactures we can control the quality of our products which allows us to offer garments that are resilient and can be worn for an extended period of time, making them a staple piece in your wardrobe.

Buying clothing made in America is something very small that you can do to help the economy grow, support small business, and protect the workers around the world. By educating yourself about manufacturers and their practices, you can make a conscious decision to purchase clothing and other goods that are produced under ethical circumstances. With Peace of Cloth there is peace of mind that you are purchasing a top quality product while supporting moral work environments and other efforts that make a difference in the lives of others everywhere!
