Around is a social enterprise creating premium quality, travel inspired t-shirts that are eco-friendly, Fair Trade Certified™, and designed and handcrafted in NYC. Through our products, we aim to empower people to change the world.

We aim to create a positive impact in the world by thoroughly thinking through each step in creating our t-shirts. From the way the soil is nurtured for the cotton, to the labor conditions of everyone in the supply chain, to the hangtags and packaging, we consider every detail in the process of making our shirts. Around’s premium quality t-shirts are made from 60% organic cotton (no pesticides or chemicals are used) and 40% recycled plastic bottles (which keep them out of the landfills and repurpose them). We support better working conditions for farmers and factory workers, and encourage women’s empowerment through the Fair Trade Certified™ USA facility in India where our blank t-shirts are made. To avoid the waste of resources, all our t-shirts are made to order, designed and screen printed by hand in Queens. Customers also have the option to customize the color of their design, free of charge. We are proud to use eco-friendly packaging materials made in the USA, such as 100% Recycled Poly Mailers, Natural Hemp Twine, and Recycled White Tissue Paper.

Our shirts are made for travelers, adventurers, dreamers and anyone who wants to make a difference.

After being involved in the fashion industry for the last 10 years, I sought the opportunity to use my knowledge and experience as a vehicle for change. Aligning my passions for travel, fashion, and design, I created Around. Starting this business required lots of research to ensure that every aspect of making and selling the shirts is consistent with the values of Around.
Around has sold their t-shirts in various markets as a MiQ maker.
