Stormy Kromer is the opposite of low-quality fast fashion. In fact, our caps come with a lifetime guarantee. Our goal is to design and create clothing and gear that’s long lasting and timeless, and to continually seek opportunities to reduce, reuse, and recycle throughout our manufacturing process.
We continue to explore ways to reduce our environmental impact. We’re deeply committed to producing most of our items domestically, minimizing our natural resource consumption by shortening the distance our products travel to get to you. Some items, like our can wrap, are cut in the margins of excess fabric, to reduce material waste.
Sustainability extends to our fabrics, as well. We’re developing and researching fabric using recycled materials for our Fall 2021 line and beyond. And beginning with our Holiday 2020 line, we’ll offer a collection of sustainable USA-made wool products through a partnership with American Woolen Mill from Stafford Springs, CT.
We may be remote, far from big city recycling facilities, but that just means we have to be more creative with our waste and energy reduction efforts. From our energy efficient boiler heating fueled by broken-down pallets, to our facility-wide paper and cardboard recycling, to our energy-saving lighting and sewing machines, we continue to examine every opportunity to serve as responsible stewards of our natural resources.
