Thank you for helping us successfully fund this project!!
We still have two days for folks to back the project and get Amazingly Comfortable rewards!
Today 98% of the clothing sold in the USA is made overseas and nearly all of that clothing is made from fabrics that have a negative effect on the environment, especially cotton. As lovers of the outdoors we want to create clothing that doesn't pollute the rivers, lakes, streams and oceans, and we want to make our clothing in the USA from organic cotton grown in the USA.
Why? Because 5.1 billion pounds of pesticides are used in the US each year and these poisons not only have a negative effect on the water we love to spend time. They also have a negative effect on the bees, the farm workers and their families, the drinking water and the creatures in the soil and the water.
The Solution: We believe we have a responsibility to create clothing that doesn't pollute the environment, clothing made in a way that has a positive contribution not only to this generation of living creatures but also future generations of living creatures.
By funding this project you'll help us prove we can make a competitively priced shirt in the USA from California Organic Cotton, a shirt that brings much needed manufacturing jobs back to the USA and that doesn't pollute our oceans, lakes, rivers and streams with harmful chemicals, a shirt you can be proud to wear.
If you back this project we will reward you with one of these Amazingly Comfortable PuraKai shirts (black, white, aqua green and blue):

Risks and challenges
The biggest obstacle was actually growing the organic cotton (which takes 8 months and requires the cooperation of Mother Nature). The organic cotton has been grown, ginned and graded by the USDA. We have the highest grade of organic cotton grown in the world. This long staple, high grade cotton is the reason we can create the type of yarn (threads) that make an ultra light and amazingly comfortable fabric.
We already have a track record of making amazingly comfortable clothing and now with your help and the help of the NC State College of textiles we can now complete this project with a much lower amount of organic cotton.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
