Kickstarter: Alder New York
We love to scour the internet in search of the latest trends, news, companies, and individuals that are shaking up the Made-in-America movement; and what place is better to search for "what's next" than Kickstarter? This week we were fortunate to stumble upon the Kickstarter campaign of Brooklyn-based clothing and apothecary company Alder New York - a brand started in the Brooklyn Navy Yard in 2011 and in dire need of your help to produce their Fall 2013 collection and lookbook.
"Unfortunately, our goal to make high quality products in the USA comes at a cost: the price of fair labor. It costs us a lot of overhead to make our products and pay our skilled craftspeople the wages they deserve, and we need help to make and document our next collection." - they write in their kickstarter.
