Indigo Apparel is an eco-friendly fashion brand.  We maintain a vegan approach by using sustainable materials such as hemp & organically grown bamboo fabric, as well as 100% non-toxic dyes in an array of hues.  With quality and comfort in mind, we hand dye and hand print each of our pieces to achieve luxurious, earth-friendly fashion.  With your support we will be able to launch our first line!

●  The fashion industry is one of the largest contributors to global pollution.

●  Many of the chemicals used in fiber processing are synthetic and toxic, and facilities often have poor waste disposal systems.

●  According to National Geographic, one cotton t-shirt requires 2,7oo litters of water to be produced. That's enough water for one person to drink for 9oo days.

●  Cotton accounts for one quarter of all the pesticides used the United States, according to the USDA.

●  Using recycled textiles helps to reduce air and water pollutants, greenhouse gases, and other volatile organic compounds released during the textile/garment manufacturing process.

Risks and challenges

One of the biggest challenges we have faced so far has been the discovery that there is always going to be more that we can do to lessen our impact on the environment. (The more you know, right?) We're going to continue our growth by researching water recycling systems, as well as recycling our scraps into new, usable fabric. There's a lot of research and development, but we've started a great project that we intend to follow through with.

In terms of our project backers and their rewards, a risk we could potentially run is unforeseeable support. (We hope!) We've taken a step to avoid misleading delivery dates by limiting reward amounts to what we can actually produce in the time frame given. As these rewards run out, we will be adding the same rewards, just with later delivery dates.
