American-made clothing goes beyond the idea of patriotism (though it can be about that too).
Home soil purchasing is about ethical consumer choices that help to reduce our carbon footprint, make it easier to seek traceable manufacturing processes, and cut down on supporting fast fashion.
In short, when you choose American made clothing brands, you are putting people and the planet above personal profit. This sets the precedent for what the future of clothing can look like.
At Sozy, we want fashion to feel good. Not just in the soft comfort of the materials we use and the cut of our clothes, but we want it to feel good in our hearts.
Ethical consumerism can pave the way for positive change in the world and we are proud to be part of that movement. At Sozy, we want to see an end to child labor, an end to fall-apart poor-quality clothing, and we want to see an end to excess waste and unfair working conditions within the industry.
This is why we choose to be one hundred percent USA-made. As a clothing company made in the USA, this ensures each and every item we design is high quality, long-lasting, supports the American worker, and keeps us truly connected to our brand mission.
Take a look at all the reasons we love to be a clothing shop made in USA.

Better for People
One of the best reasons for choosing clothing made in the United States is to be safe in the knowledge that your clothes are made outside of sweatshops.
Fast fashion is a well-known humanitarian issue. One of the most notorious disasters caused by the fast fashion industry is that of the Rana Plaza in Bangladesh. It collapsed in 2013, killing 1,129 workers who were living on pennies a day to begin with.

If you want to watch a life-changing documentary on the topic, then we highly recommend watching The True Cost. This doco outlines the lengths major fashion labels went to ignore employee pleas for better working conditions just to make a better profit.
American-made clothing companies, on the other hand, have to adhere to fair working standards and provide higher wages for those who work in manufacturing.
