Why we only use garments manufactured in the U.S.

We, here at fiftyseven-thirtythree, like to emphasize all of our products we use to print t-shirts, hoodies, and other products are manufactured in the United States.

Although outsourced manufacturing is common for larger companies because of cheap overhead and employee wages, there are problems which violate human rights, far beyond taking jobs away from Americans.

Here are two accounts from women who are sweatshop clothing workers Classic Factory, located in Jordan.  Classic Factory is known for sewing goods sold at larger retail conglomerates such as Wal-Mart, Target, Macy’s, and Land’s End.  These are reports of rape and violent sexual abuse against women.  Please watch the following videos:

This isn’t a plea for you to wear our clothing.  We just wanted you to understand, acts such as these, do not align with our values and instances such as these need to be known.  For more media coverage on these injustices, check out the Institute for Global Labour and Human Rights.

But…if you would like to shop for clothing, which doesn’t violate human rights, please feel free to check us out and support local business at http://www.fiftyseven-thirtythree.com/
