Sustainable clothes, made in USA

(Also posted in Frugal / Energy Efficient Living)

http://www.ramblersway.com/sustainability/sustainable-clothing-made-america

From what I've read, this is a great company - very caring / humane treatment of their sheep/animals, environmentally friendly dyes, etc., and made in US. For some reason, though, I can't get any info on their clothes - where/how to buy. Just a few photos but no links or online buying options.

I don't want to buy a lot of things; I can't buy anything right now, but when I replace an item, I want it to be ethically produced - all animals, people, and the surroundings treated well - and hopefully produced here (or well-produced in another part of the world that creates good jobs in communities that need them).

2. Expensive but worth it

You will find the prices crazy higher than some big conglomeration with items made in china but as a small biz guy i can tell you the commitment to manufacture anything completely in the US is an extremely expensive one. Supporting companies that can and have made that commitment is hard but necessary. One thing you can count on is that the clothes will survive washing more than one or two times unlike the throw away landfill fodder of target or Walmart.
