Zady

https://www.zady.com

At our roots, we are a collaboration between friends. Zady provides an alternative to today's "fast-fashion," a fad demanding consumers buy more and more instead of buying 'good.' We should not be compelled to accept throwaway goods as a way of life; we can instead take pride in the style and integrity of each and every piece we own.

Hipcycle

http://hipcycle.com

Our goal here at Hipcycle is to offer upcycled products that are as attractive, durable, and otherwise as desirable as traditional equivalent products (if not more so). We also strive to offer products that are priced about the same as regular high-quality products. We don’t feel that just because something is a “green” product that is means you have to make a choice between helping the environment and getting what you want.

Patriot Threads

http://www.patriotthreads.org

Patriot Threads was founded by a 17 year-old student named Brady Fernandes. Raised in the South, Brady saw a need in the marketplace for high-quality classic Southern style clothing with a patriotic flair. It was really very simple: he wanted to take all the modern design elements of today’s youthful trends and tie these in with his love of Country, Southern tradition and an outgoing lifestyle to create an iconic brand that you would be proud to wear. This became the brand Patriot Threads. Brady also has a passion for helping others and was inspired to donate a portion of all sales to charities that support wounded veterans who have sacrificed so much when serving our country.
