We love that all our garments are made of 100% organic cotton. We choose organic cotton because its fibers are clean. Our garments are free from the toxins used to grow conventional cotton, which has a negative impact on the earth’s air, water, soil, wildlife and the health of the people who work and live in areas where conventional cotton is grown.
Honey Cake Tiger is committed to keeping production as local as possible. This commitment has a threefold benefit: we decrease our carbon footprint by minimizing the “traveling” of our products with our local manufacturing, support local businesses, AND we get to know the people who are involved in the production of our clothing. All our collections are designed, cut and sewn on a small scale in San Diego, California. Our fabric is knitted and printed in Los Angeles, California from organic yarn imported from India. We hope in the near future to find organic yarn spun closer to us in order to reach better transparency in our supply chain.
As small business owners committed to caring for the environment as the central philosophy of our business practice, we have partnered with One Tree Planted, an organization that is committed to safeguarding the “lungs” of the earth. For every item we sell, we plant a tree with One Tree Planted. Trees are not only critical for the health of our natural world, they are essential for all life on this planet. The fact is simple: we cannot live without trees, so their protection and maintenance must be a priority. To learn more, visit https://onetreeplanted.org/pages/why-tree
Honey Cake Tiger aims to achieve zero waste around their production as much as they can. For instance, our kids face masks, garlands, and the strings we use to attach our hangtags are all made from leftover fabric generated by our cutting process. We are determined to find more ways to make use of our fabric byproducts. Stay tuned!
