Victor Athletics

We used to make the majority of our own clothes here in the states. Now we make almost none. Victor Athletics is looking to change that, while helping out their neighbors at the same time. Based in Cincinnati, they're working with a small factory in Tennessee — one that used to employ 150 people, but is down to just 5 workers — to introduce a new line of everyday staples like pocket tees, hoodies, crewnecks, and sweatpants, available at reasonable prices. They're all made from organic cotton, to reduce environmental impact, and 5% of all the proceeds will be given back to the factories so they can set about hiring some of those people back.
