Refugee Run Clothing Co-op Seeks Crowdfunding for Startup

Blue Tin Production seeks to provide highly-skilled refugee and low-income immigrant women full-time work in Chicago, producing clothing for designers and brands nationally, while simultaneously meeting mental and physical health, legal, social service, child care, transportation, language, and other needs of its members. In doing so, Blue Tin Production will act as an alternative to sweatshop-based fashion production within the United States, disrupting chains of violence within the industry.

We currently have an anticipated launch date of mid-2019, and already have a wait list of designers and major departments stores wanting to produce clothing with us! We need to raise seed funding to purchase materials, machines, and other start-up supplies to make the co-op possible!
