CotC is a collaboration of farmers and manufacturers across theCarolinas dedicated to growing, making, and selling its t-shirts in theCarolinas.

CotC shirts are suppliedwholesale full package, custom printed to your specifications, so ifyou have a design, we'll print it for you!

Though originally the inspiration of TS Designs'Eric Henry and longtime friend and mentor Sam Moore, it could not haveleft the ground without the support of individuals and organizationsall throughout its supply chain.

Their program focuses on three main objectives:

- Support of Local Economies

- Low Transportation Footprint

- Complete Product Transparency

Support of Local Economies

Thefarmers and manufacturers involved in Harvest '08, the first crop ofshirts for the program, represent over 700 North Carolinas employees.Not only are we dedicated to growing and making the shirts here in theCarolinas, they're dedicated to selling them here too. Their first twocrops, '08 and '09, will be available for purchase only in North andSouth Carolina.

Low Transportation Footprint

Harvest'08 will travel approximately 700 miles from cotton field toprinted/dyed shirt. A globally-sourced t-shirt can travel more than16,000 miles before being sold.

Complete Product Transparency

Maps,images, and tracking paperwork for each harvest are available on Cotton of the Carolina's website, allowing any wearer to track his or her shirt'slife from dirt to shirt using the printed reference label on each shirt.
