Dirt To Shirt

"A t-shirt today can travel 17,000 miles. Our T shirt travels 750 miles." says Eric Henry of Cotton Of The Carolinas.

In North Carolina, "Cotton Of The Carolinas" insists on going local with every step of the T-shirt manufacturing process, from "dirt to shirt" as they put it. Nothing is outsourced or shipped overseas.

Here are those 9 steps in order: Farm, gin, spin, knit, finish, cut, sew, print, and dye.

Yes, the local trend is making it's way to T shirts! People love it and happily pay a few dollars more.
