Sustainability is key to JON BLANCO. It is part of the very fabric that makes us who we are. We are not trying to be like other brands. Rather, we are making the conscious effort to create apparel and headwear using high quality organic cotton (or at a minimum, traceable cotton such as Supima and American Grown Cotton near our manufacturer partners), FSC-certified Bamboo, and recycled polyester (i.e. our recycled hats take plastic out of the environment). This has also led us to finding and building relationships with new partners, right here in our backyard.
Last Fall, we began our partnership with Sandlot Goods, a Kansas City based hat manufacturer.
This partnership has been instrumental for us in pursuing our goals of manufacturing more goods close to home, which reduces our environmental impact and supports our cities and state.
We are offering an alternative to fast fashion brands that make cheap trendy goods.
We believe headwear and apparel should be seen as an investment.
If cared for, it will last a long time!
