Stonewear Brings USA Manufacturing Closer to Home with Addition of Colorado-Based Production Facility

Louisville, Colo. -- (July 21, 2016) –Stonewear, the Colorado-based women’s activewear brand, will bring its USA manufacturing closer to home with the addition of a new Colorado-based production facility. Select pieces from the brand’s activewear collection will be exclusively made in Colorado, available to consumers for the Fall 2016 retail sales season (August 2016).

Since 1996, Stonewear has been crafting boundary-pushing women’s performance and lifestyle apparel proudly made in the USA. The brand draws its design inspiration and active life ethos from the mountain-sport culture of its home base in Boulder County, Colo., and is proud to bring manufacturing capabilities even closer to home with the addition of The Whole Works. The Whole Works is a new Colorado-based clothing production facility serving Colorado’s growing array of apparel, gear and accessories designers.

“It has always been our aspiration to work with a local production facility in Colorado, but the infrastructure wasn’t available until now,” comments Cassie Strid, Stonewear product manager. “The Whole Works is the ideal partner not only due to their commitment to reinvigorate American manufacturing, but also by creating sustainable jobs for women in particular.”

As one of the first Public Benefit Corporations in the state of Colorado, The Whole Works is focused on making a social impact by partnering with a job preparation program that teaches production sewing to women in need. Given Stonewear’s longstanding history creating outdoor clothing for women, the brand plans to increase manufacturing capabilities as The Whole Works expands its network in Colorado.

Stonewear currently manufacturers the bulk of its line in Los Angeles with fabrics being primarily sourced from overseas and is actively seeking US-sourced alternatives. The Whole Works will produce a small run of products for Stonewear in 2016, with plans to expand as manufacturing capabilities increase.
