SanMar Announces Exclusive Allmade Apparel Partnership
SanMar Corporation (PPAI 110788, S16) today announced that it is partnering with Allmade (PPAI743984, S1) to be the exclusive supplier of Allmade’s ethically and environmentally conscious blank apparel to the promotional apparel and imprinted sportswear industries.
Founded by screen printers for screen printers, Allmade is an impact-driven company that is dedicated to breaking the cycle of poverty and reducing the industry’s impact on the environment while also making exceptional shirts that are great to wear and print on. The Allmade story began when a few forward-thinking screen printers, entrepreneurs and business owners traveled together to Haiti to experience the garment manufacturing business there firsthand. During the visit, they realized that by producing shirts differently, they could make a lasting change in the lives of the Haitian people and also make a positive impact on the planet.

“Allmade puts social responsibility and sustainability at the core of everything they do,” says Jeremy Lott, president of SanMar. “Bringing this dynamic brand to the promotional products industry gives our customers the chance to make a difference with their buying decisions, which widens the impact in our industry and in our communities.”
Ryan Moor, co-founder/CEO of Allmade, says, “We started this movement to make an impact. With SanMar as our exclusive distributor, we can amplify our mission, create value and empower more to create a positive impact on a much larger scale.”
Allmade’s soft, tri-blend tees are manufactured using three sustainable fibers: 50-percent recycled polyester, 25-percent U.S-grown organic cotton and 25-percent Tencel Modal. The recycled polyester in each t-shirt helps prevent an equivalent of up to six bottles from ending up in a landfill. Much of the production process is completed in the U.S., including spinning and knitting the yarn, as well as dyeing and finishing the fabric.
SanMar is now selling six adult styles in nine colors and one youth style in eight colors. Allmade products are available now on SanMar’s website.
