Jasco Fabrics; Changing the American Fashion Scene

StartUp Fashion Resource - Jasco Fabrics

I know I talk a lot about “green” design and eco-friendly fabrics.  But ya know what, I don’t care.  It’s important to me and, in my humble opinion, it should be to you as well.  So, when a colleague came to me asking for some direction with finding eco-friendly knits, I started doing some digging.  One company that crossed my path was Jasco. Apparently, they’ve been around since 1945 as domestic fabric manufacturers and in the year 2000 they launched Jasco Eco, becoming the first creators of certified organic wool jersey.  They have since expanded and evolved their eco label  now offering organic cotton, viscose, and wool in interlock, twill, jersey, and crepe.  They also have a noteworthy “washed” wool jersey that seems worth exploring.  Plus, it looks as though low minimums (50-100 meters) is not something at which they turn up their noses.  And I think I read the magic words “custom colors” somewhere on their site. Always a good thing.

I have to say, I like their website.  They seem like a company routed in quality product and the importance of making a difference.  Unfortunately, I probably won’t be able to take much advantage of what they have to offer as I don’t have much use for knits in my design work. But, maybe you do?  Have you ever worked with Jasco?  What was your experience like? Come on, I’m looking for someone to confirm my suspicions of their greatness. 😉
