Esperanza Threads has been making organic clothing in the metropolitan area of Cleveland, Ohio since 2000. We make pesticide-free, comfortable, timeless styles that are fair wage and fair trade. We employ migrants with barriers to employment, training them valuable skills.
Kristin and I were both raised in the Jesuit, Catholic tradition. We attended service trips, teach-ins, demonstrations and lectures on committing to the common good by supporting all kinds of justice initiatives. We are now both teachers in the city of Boston. However, now that we are parents it has become more challenging to support all of the initiatives that are truly important to our practice of faith such as supporting sustainability and economic justice as well as a fair, living wage for all workers.
Esperanza Threads has made that challenge a bit more achievable by providing well-made, organic clothing made by underemployed and migrant workers. Our son likes the outfits and he looks super cute in the clothes. The outfits are a higher quality, heavier material than most of the other outfits we own…and stylish, too! We have received many compliments on the outfits we own from Esperanza Threads. Most importantly, we can feel like Ezra is already beginning to make a difference simply by what he is wearing. We are happy to support such an important grassroots cause in our home town of Cleveland, Ohio.

My oldest daughter, Kate, has a blog that she uploads pictures of her two children on. She included a number of pictures of Alaina (her oldest) online in the "Year of the Rabbit" t-shirt I bought for her from Esperanza Threads some time ago. The shirt fits great, and looks so nice on her. Here are a couple of pictures of her I thought you may enjoy.

Casual wear style. The fabric is incredibly soft and comfortable. Holds up very well, and looks very nice. Construction allows it to go over the head easily. Too awesome for both parents and kids.
