Sun50 sun protection apparel is 100% made in the USA.
Sun50 is committed to designing and producing the most environmentally conscious sun protection clothing in the world.
We source premium USA made sun protective fabrics for 50% of our apparel collections. These fabrics utilize non-toxic, azo-free, metal-free and formaldehyde-free dyes and achieve UPF 50+ sun protection naturally, without added chemical treatments, dips, or sprays. Sourcing and producing fabrics in the United States reduces our carbon footprint, adheres to strict environmental laws, and provides ethical treatment of workers. Sourcing USA made fabrics eliminates the need for air or water transportation, two of the largest contributors to polluting our planet.
Chemical-Free Sun Protection
We have a passion for the planet and people, which dictates the way we run our business. We source the most light-weight, durable, and fun-to-wear fabrics with superior sun protection, but they must also be planet-friendly. Our imported fabrics are held to the highest production standards and must be bluesign® and/or OEKO-TEX® certified. Sun50 fabrics are sourced responsibly, aligned with our values, and made for conscious customers seeking high-quality, made to last, eco-friendly fashion.
Sun50 Team & Factory Partners
At Sun50, we pride ourselves in designing our sun protective apparel in Minneapolis, MN and producing our garments domestically with partner factories throughout the United States. Domestic apparel production elevates our garments and decreases our carbon footprint.
Proudly Made in the USA
Some brands follow a fast fashion supply chain model, we use a slow, sustainable, and circular fashion approach. We are thoughtful and eco-conscious from our sourcing all the way to our eco-friendly packaging.
We make all patterns and samples in-house at Sun50. Multiple rounds of samples are made and thoroughly tested to perfect the flattering fit, comfortable fabric and chic style. By doing the pattern and sampling in-house, we save on time, costs and shipping; as stated above, air and water transportation are two of the largest contributors to polluting our planet.
Small Batch Production
By manufacturing with our vendors in the United States, Sun50 is able to produce garments are produced at one time, which reduces excess production and wastage.
High Quality Craftsmanship
Domestic production allows Sun50 to closely monitor the manufacturing process to ensure the highest quality standards are achieved for each garment. Every item is quality checked twice – once on the sewing floor and again in our warehouse - before it is sent out to customers. This process ensures our customers receive the highest quality goods and reduces the need for returns.
Digital Printing Practices
We use digital printing to bring fun, lively prints to life on our garments. Digital printing reduces water use and fabric wastage.
We take our corporate responsibility seriously. When it comes to safely packing your order, which is done by our in-house Minnesota team, we use eco-friendly, sustainable shipping and packing materials. Like many businesses we may not be perfect, but we want you to know when it comes to respecting our planet and humankind, you’ve made the right choice.
