“We could have just made our shirt, sold the design, and walked away—but that’s not how we’re built. We understand the history, power, and use of cotton; the value of crafting something and nurturing thriving communities from the ground up. That’s why we’re working to rebuild the black cotton-textile-to-apparel ecosystem from Seed2Shirt, ensuring it lasts for generations to come. ” ~ Tameka R. Peoples Founder, Seed2Shirt
