We believe that fashion can make our world better. We choose to empower workers in the fashion industry by treating them as equals. We craft our clothing with integrity and believe in beautiful, long-lasting design. Responsible and quality production is our standard.
Pamut started with Kat’s journey to the other side of the world. After gaining experience in the corporate world, Kat took a break to travel through Europe. During her travels, she fell in love with Budapest, Hungary and decided to move there in order to pursue her dream of starting an apparel business. Living abroad challenged Kat’s perception of the world in ways that impacted her beliefs about creating and designing. She learned from her Hungarian friends how to make something out of nothing. When Kat moved back home to Raleigh, NC, she began to connect with pioneers of the revived NC textile industry. She realized that, through Pamut, she could create a support system of local designers, artists, and producers in North Carolina; a truly sustainable company that creates beautiful clothing too!
CLOTHING THAT BENEFITS OUR SOCIETY AND OUR ENVIRONMENT.
We’ve designed our supply chain to utilize the most eco-friendly and community-oriented production facilities in North Carolina.
WE CARE WHERE OUR CLOTHING IS MADE.
We choose to work with only local mills and workshops. This allows us to develop a close relationship with our suppliers, and to visit and see how these facilities operate. We evaluate each facility based on environmental and social impact before committing to a partnership.
We make our clothing out of only 100% organic cotton; Nature’s best fiber in its purest form. Our cotton is stamped with the GOTS organic seal of approval.
Owner and designer Kat Williford works with local organizations, sustainable partners, and markets to grow the sustainability movement.
