In My Opinion
*I believe my body should be covered by nature
not a chemical concoction cook up in a laboratory.
*I believe slow fashion connects me with purpose to the things I use
so I will exercise more regard as to how long I keep or when to discard.
*I believe in sustainability, being grateful and appreciative for the privilege of usage
with no sense of over consumed entitlement and a disrespect for where it came from.
*I believe I have the power to demand products that don't harm me or the environment
and the right to refuse any encounter with those that pollute, kill, destroy life and the planet!
Fast Disposable Fashion is.............
Destroying our Earth
Making Us Sick

What is CATA?
Consumers Against Toxic Apparel is a company whose mission and focus is to connect the Organic Apparel Community together nationwide by creating one trusted platform where small organic clothing companies can market their products and conscious consumers can easily find them. Companies who join the online community must meet certain criteria before they can be accepted. Many are B Corporations, GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standards) Certified, PVI Pure Integrity Verified, purchase fair trade goods and raw materials, support products made in the USA and have a passion/drive for doing business with consciousness and mindfulness every day. The company utilize outlets such as traveling fashion shows, radio, expos, symposiums, tv and much more to create awareness, educate and inspire consumers to want to know more about the clothes they wear and the textiles they use every day. CATA provides factual data to support their efforts and conducts intense research in all areas of fashion exposing the deceitful and dangerous practices widely used and accepted in the industry. Affiliate companies offer stylish organic cotton, clean natural fibre and fair trade clothing.
The second component of CATA is the membership opportunity for consumers and the easy access to organic companies. It provides exclusive discounts or free shipping on unlimited purchases from affiliate companies for one full year. To become a member and receive the discounts you must be willing to Take The Pledge. There are four pledges; whether consumers decide to take one, two, three or all four is strictly up to the individual. The most important thing is that you make a commitment to be conscious of how you buy clothes, know what they are made of and under what conditions are they made. CATA wants you to make better choices.
What is Pure Integrity Verified?
Pure Integrity Verified™ Seal of Approval means beyond organic standards as they are today, bringing to the world the "Highest Standards" in the food, supplement, cosmetics and textile industry. Only the purest of products on the planet will gain the PIV seal of approval! The seal means free from compromising with industry standards.
Products are sure to be FREE from GMO's, MSG’s, HFCS or any ingredients that become toxic when mixed together. If the product is a supplement in vitamin form, it will be organic whole foods, free from added fillers or artificial ingredients. If the product is cosmetics / skin care, the toxic-free standards apply here as well. If the company has textiles, clothing or accessory products, then we adhere to the CATA qualifications of a sustainable planet. Just because a product is declared NON-GMO, this does NOT mean it is toxic-free or even organic. If products have any animal ingredients, then we adhere to the Humane Farm Animal Care certifications.
ABOUT SILVER NEEDLE & THREAD
At Silver Needle & Thread we provide custom sewing services for individual clients and brands. Our focus is the utilization of organic and natural fibres.
Nothing about us is cookie cutter and one size does not fit all!
At Silver Needle & Thread we strive to provide clients with as many alternatives possible to dressing well by listening to your needs, understanding your concerns, and treating you as the special and unique individual you are. Nothing about us is cookie cutter and one size does not fit all!
We're committed to hand sewing quality garments and hold ourselves to the highest standards possible. We seek to engage our clients in creative ways connecting them to the clothes they wear and the things they use in their lives. We want to revitalize a slow fashion movement where consumers put time, thought and effort into the things they use taking care to preserve their origin and respect the purpose they serve.
Our goal is to sew clothes that you can become connected to and gain a sense of ownership through creating garments you love to wear. We think you should feel good and care about the clothes you wear.
Cheap disposable fashion has created a materialistic, uncaring and disconnected society of consumers. A phenomena that's wreaking havoc on the sustainability of our planet and the true quality of our lives.
We want women to embrace the idea of being confident in their own choices for fashion, believing that a good dressmaker, tailor or seamstress can sew well
constructed, quality garments that will easily meet your lifestyle needs. We're skilled artisans working to merge the realities of today's fashion with the practicalities of good design, clean raw materials and personalized style.
Our Vision is to "Take Back Fashion." Our workmanship is of the highest level, attention to detail is important to us. Custom sewing clothes that fit well, look good on you and created with quality materials are clothes you'll want to wear and cherish. An idea that makes us very happy.
The fashion industry cannot continue to produce and create fashion as we know it. The business model is completely unstainable. Industry is cutting down trees in ancient forests for the sake of producing cheap fabric to create garments that on average are thrown into the landfill in less than a year. These are trees that have stood for thousands of years. In addition more toxic and dangerous chemicals are being created to produce synthetic fabrics that are threatening our health in disturbing ways.
Creating beautiful clothes is our passion. We're committed to making sure the clothes you wear are right for you, safe and sustainable.
