Loggerhead Apparel was born in the minds of two South Carolina natives in early 2009. One a product of the Lowcountry, who grew up on the coast just north of Charleston. The other a product of the Upstate, the grandchild of mill workers in the textile town of Spartanburg.
Their passion and pride for the state of South Carolina, its people and its beauty, its wildlife and its economy, led to Loggerhead Apparel.
The Loggerhead Sea Turtle is an endangered species, and the coast of South Carolina is extremely important to its survival.The textile industry of South Carolina, once thriving, is as endangered as the Loggerhead, and has a huge impact on the economy of our state.
Loggerhead Apparel will provide top-quality, American-grown, American-made clothing at a fair price. Ten percent of the revenue gained from the sale of all Loggerhead Apparel shirts will be donated directly to local causes supporting the conservation and protection of the Loggerhead.
In addition to supporting the Loggerhead, Loggerhead Apparel will also support the local textile industry, because no part of the production process will take place outside of the United States.
