Why don’t USA manufacturers make organic cotton bras? We get this question a lot. There are actually a number of great companies, like Blue Canoe, that make soft bras, bralettes, and yoga bras in the USA. However, you won’t find padded, molded cup or underwire bras made in the USA. When we started making our own line of organic panties in Oregon, we thought we might try our hand at making some bras as well. What we found is that bra making takes expensive specialty equipment. Most sewing manufacturers can’t afford to buy this equipment unless they are using it regularly.
We recently held an event at our warehouse for local folks who wanted to come in to try on organic bras and eco-fashions in person. Everyone who came walked away some freebies! From goodie bags to raffle prizes to gifts with purchase, no one left empty handed. We hope it was a great experience for our Oregon and Washington friends, but sadly, the rest of our fabulous customers live too far from our warehouse to participate. So we’re launching a few blog giveaways to let everyone in on the fun.
