PATRICIA ERMECHEO | OSOM BRAND FOUNDER
Inspired by the universe of eco textiles ... OSOM BRAND™ is a sustainable brand that embraces the idea that we are all one. All products are made entirely of high quality upcycled thread from discarded garments, saving thousands of tons of textile waste from going to landfill. No Water or Dyes are used to make products.
By supporting the brand you are contributing to many great causes :
SAVE WATER: A conventional T-shirt will use 700 gallons and 2.5 ounces of pesticides, we use none, this is not counting the 40 trillion and 12,800,000,000 respectively that takes to grow cotton for virgin threads.
NO DYES: More than 200 billion of waste water are dumped into local rivers each year, these chemicals can be found in the food we eat.
REDUCE TEXTILE WASTE: Each year Americans throw out nearly 11 million tons of clothing, approximately 70 pounds per American. Not only does this seriously contribute to the growing waste crisis in America. It is a true waste considering nearly 99% of textiles are recyclable..
"MY ONLY WISH AS THE FOUNDER OF THIS BRAND IS TO BE ABLE TO SHOW PEOPLE YOU CAN DO THINGS DIFFERENTLY BY SUPPORTING ONE ANOTHER AND UNDERSTANDING THE NATURAL CYCLES OF LIFE. NATURE IS OUR BIGGEST MASTER." ~ PATRICIA ERMECHEO, OSOM BRAND FOUNDER
