Allmade was founded by a screen print supply company and ten leading screen printing businesses from across the country, who purchase hundreds of thousands of t-shirts annually to sell to printers as blank canvases and to customers as printed shirts.
This founding group with the support of the rest of the screen printing industry have a unique opportunity to influence the apparel market by suggesting and offering socially and environmentally responsible alternatives to our customers – who often are unaware of the exploitative nature of t-shirt manufacturing and its environmental impact.
Twenty minutes on Google will teach you everything you need to know about the environmental damage done by cotton, plastic, and the profit-first practices of the apparel industry.
The Allmade story starts when we traveled to Haiti together. We experienced first-hand the economic and environmental devastation experienced by garment workers, and realized what a positive impact we could have by creating dignified living wage jobs that empower the proud people of Haiti to take care of themselves and their families.
We returned wholly committed to breaking the cycle of poverty and child abandonment in Haiti, while reducing our industry’s impact on the environment. We will do this first by making high quality, fashionable shirts that are a pleasure to print on and wear, and then by leveraging our industry influence to make Allmade a brand consumers ask for by name.
