We here at Pure American Naturals are happy to announce we have been nominated for a 2014 Martha Stewart American Made Award! We feel quite honored to be a nominee for this prestigious accolade, so we wanted to share our good news with everyone.
We pride ourselves not just on our sustainable products, farm, pastures and processes, but also on our high quality mohair fibers and yarns. Our animals are treated humanely and happily live in our beautiful pastures among the rolling hills of Central Pennsylvania. Happy goats mean top quality fiber for our mohair, which means top quality apparel and our featured Reward mohair socks. This urban-farm connection feeds into Americans’ increasing need to buy products that aren’t just made here in America but are also environmentally friendly.
The Martha Stewart American Made Awards spotlight “the next generation of great American makers: entrepreneurs, artisans, and small-business owners who are creating beautiful, inspiring, useful products; pioneering new industries; improving local communities; and changing the way we eat, shop, work, and live.” The fact that Pure American Naturals is included in this elite group of nominees tells us we must be doing something right! It means that our apparel, mohair and the way we do business is being recognized as a forerunner of the shift in the way Americans are looking at the environment and what we can all be doing to help Mother Nature.
Our highest priority is sustainability. We believe in “eco-fashion” – the idea that a company can be socially responsible, “green” and Earth friendly and still create an excellent product. The end result is satisfaction in knowing what we produce will have a minimal impact on the environment and will help with other sustainability efforts.
