Vendor Spotlight: Groceries Apparel

Posted on: June 26th, 2015 by admin


Hailing from the west coast, we just love Groceries Apparel’s take on design and use of recycled and organic textiles. And their company mantra is one we can get down with. They measure their success by the good-paying jobs they’re able to offer, and the amount of green textiles they order.

As written in their manifesto, “Groceries Apparel exists to create a demand for fashion using only localized manufacturing and recycled/organic textiles. We manufacture garments in our own California factory, trace our fabrics to the farm and follow the human being across the supply chain to make sure that everyone is treated fairly. Our operations improve the lives of our entire supply chain, our customers and the environment. We are confident that our model and values are the future of apparel manufacturing and we would rather go out of business than compromise.”


Beyond their values, they create quality products that feel as good as they look! We have a selection of Groceries Apparel on Pitt Street, including this anything-but-simple white t-shirt. Our style experts at can show you just how versatile these pieces can be – and explain why they’re the perfect staple for your summer wardrobe! Make sure to ask about Groceries apparel the next time you’re at Out of Hand.
