Tell us about your business.We often wondered why life couldn’t be about loving what you do, making beautiful things, and being nice!! We believe wholeheartedly that what goes around comes around and out of this philosophy Loop Collection was born. From the beginning we knew that we wanted to design a children's line that was socially and environmentally responsible. Most importantly, we had a desire to bring production back to the USA as we had both been affected during our careers by the closings of domestic manufacturers who just simply couldn't compete. Loop Collection is inspired by the fashion, quality, and nostalgia of yesteryear. We design all of our patterns and garments, which are then knit and assembled in the USA. We are hoping to launch a pet and home collection as well as expand our children's line with new categories. It is a continual challenge to source USA made materials to use in our collections but we are determined and committed!
What makes your business stand out?Each garment is proudly knit and assembled in the U.S.A. This means we work with manufacturers directly; supporting local industry and forming partnerships that assure quality and efficiency. All of our materials, from our yarn to our sustainably harvested wood buttons, to our packaging and labels, are responsibly and domestically manufactured. We knit with recycled cotton, which eliminates harsh chemical dyeing processes, reduces land use for crops and in turn the need for fertilizers and pesticides. We are just one small company but we feel like we're helping to make a difference!
What's the best business advice you've received?If you believe in what you are doing, stick with it and success will follow!
