All ‘Bout Trees Clothing – “We Wanted To Make The Perfect Shirt, This Is Your Go-To”
When’s the last time you purchased some clothing and felt like you were helping the world? Do you need a reason to cop some clothes to help tidy up your fashion statements and also save the environment? Today, All ‘Bout Trees clothing founder Alvaro E. de Castro gives you his top five reasons his brand is deeper than threads.
1. Sustain Yourself
The first reason you should check out All ‘Bout Trees is because of the sustainability. We really take our time in all of our products and make sure everything is organic or recycled in one way or another. That’s all the way down from the cotton to the inks we use. It’s all in the details and in every type of way that’s going to cause less damage to the planet when we do it, we’re going to always do it.
2. Do The Right Thing
When we started, we figured when you start something, you want to start it right. One of our biggest things we started off with was being sweatshop-free. We wanted to make sure the people making our clothes were being taken care of and we weren’t exploiting anybody. That’s one of the biggest issues in the fashion industry. It’s messed up. We’re will to pay a little more from our cost to make sure it’s coming from people who are being taken care of and not slaving away at some factory in Asia.
3. Winter Wonderland
The first set of clothes we made were made in Turkey and now we’ve moved out to Los Angeles because we’ve started manufacturing here in the US. It all comes down to the whole sustainability thing with us manufacturing here. We can offer jobs to people here in the US and help the economy here instead of outsourcing it. The new stuff that’s going to come out is super dope. We have t-shirts, beanies, hats and a lot more. The new collection is ridiculous.
4. Simply Said
For me, the reason why we decided to go with the simple little squirrel symbol is because I like to go with the basic outfits at least three or four times a week. I’m always wearing a white t-shirt or a black t-shirt underneath a sweater or cardigan or something like that. It’s something you can wear in a lot of different occasions and it’s going to look nice and flashy but also sporty. It’s something that’s very open. It’s very flexible as a product.
5. The Perfect Fit
It’s comfortable! Straigth up. We custom-manufactured the shirts from scratch. The designs, the material, the thickness, the sizing, we made sure we created a t-shirt that fits right and is comfortable. We wanted to make sure we created a shirt you felt comfotable in. It’s a difference when you look at a shirt and say, “Oh, I want to wear that and be comfortable.” That’s what we were aiming for. We wanted to make the perfect shirt. This is your go-to shirt.
