The Harvest: Garment Dyeing at TS Designs
May 12 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
See how North Carolina cotton becomes American-made t-shirts and meet the people behind the process with The Harvest: Conversations for the Future of Cotton. The Harvest is sponsored by North Carolina sustainable apparel companies TS Designs and Solid State Clothing.
Our last stop of “The Harvest” is TS Designs in Burlington, NC. TS Designs is an apparel company committed to a sustainable, 100% U.S.-based supply chain—and also one of the brands behind the 10,000 Pounds of Cotton Project. CEO Eric Henry will take us inside TS Designs’ dye house, which is one of the only garment dyeing facilities in the Eastern United States. You’ll see how t-shirts get their color and learn why garment dyeing results in a higher-quality shirt.
Don’t miss this rare chance to see inside the process of how your clothing gets made!
