Ramblers Way, the sustainable clothing company dedicated to making clothing in America, is collaborating with SeedInvest, the foremost equity crowdfunding platform, to unveil an investment opportunity. Ramblers Way was born in 2009 when sustainability pioneer and founder of Tom's of Maine, Tom Chappell, returned from a hiking trip across Wales.

Inspired to create a next-to-skin shirt that would keep him warm, soak up sweat, and didn't rub uncomfortably against the skin, Tom built Ramblers Way with a commitment to protecting the planet and supporting local economies.

Funding from the SeedInvest campaign will be used to help Ramblers Way continue to expand both its online and retail presence across the country. It has two new locations planned for 2018 in Greenwich, Connecticut and Boston, Massachusetts. Furthermore, funds raised will ensure that the Ramblers Way supply chain remains responsibly driven and sourced.

Integrating lifelong values of doing good while doing business, Ramblers Way identified Rambouillet Merino wool, which has a superfine diameter and long staple, as its primary fibre. Using a superior spinning process called "worsted" in which fibres are spun in parallel, Ramblers Way clothing eliminates the traditional itch of wool.

Today, Ramblers Way produces high-quality clothing, sourced from the finest wool fibres. Each garment uses a soft and lightweight fabric made especially for unnoticeable protection and next-to-skin comfort. Ramblers Way offers a variety of all-season essentials for men and women at four retail locations across New England as well as online.

"At Ramblers Way, we're driven by the passion to create quality, sustainable apparel that takes you from office to outdoors. We've worked tirelessly to ensure our commitment to environmental sustainability was at the core of our business, from the farms we work with, to the packaging and printing we use," said Tom Chappell, CEO of Ramblers Way. "With our first crowdfunding campaign, we're creating an opportunity for people who are passionate about skillfully crafted clothing to invest with us in a sustainable future."

Ramblers Way is the first American company to offer organic wool clothing certified to the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). The GOTS certified 100 per cent organic clothing includes an Organic Wool Camisole and Organic Wool Sleeveless Swing Dress, among other items. Ramblers Way depends on GOTS to ensure it's acquiring certified organic wool. GOTS is a rigorous certification that uses independent bodies to verify compliance at each step of the supply chain, from the moment wool is purchased to when it becomes a garment at one of the company's factories in the US.

Ramblers Way is also Cradle to Cradle Certified, a certification that ensures the guidance of a continual improvement in the process as it relates to material, health, material reutilisation, renewable energy and carbon management, water stewardship, and social fairness. (SV)
