Meet Brett Matheson the co-founder of Arizona’s largest sustainable apparel manufacturing company.
Brett’s interest in sustainability sparked in the 90’s, while developing the implementation of hydrogen fuel cells in cars. He was able to collaborate with some of the leading forces in the alternative fuel industry, inspiring him to closely examine current environmental issues and change his lifestyle.
With 28 years of apparel manufacturing experience under his belt and a firsthand encounter with oceanic pollution, Brett has noticed a permanent change that needs to be implemented in the fashion industry. His current focus is aimed at using advanced textile printing, cutting and sewing technologies in apparel manufacturing, incorporating sustainable fabrics composed of recycled water bottles.
Moving forward, Brett is working to build an environmentally responsible marketplace: milling locally sourced water bottles from Phoenix, grinding them into pellets, extruding them into thread, and knitting fabric for customized apparel, all in house. Eventually he hopes to prove the economic model and implement this technology-infused manufacturing paradigm nationwide.
Brett’s incredible talent as a graphic designer and his earth-forward mindset challenge the fashion industry to reconfigure its production methods by showing the world that artful, quality garments can be manufactured without harming the environment.
