Every pair of Maggie's Organics socks is knit by one of three independent family knitters in North Carolina. Together, they are living proof of the tenacity and perseverance of the American spirit. One knitter outside of Raleigh works the mill that's been in the family for generations, and still provides health care to their employees. Another knitter is a third-generation techie bringing new seamless toe machines to his grandpa's business. We process and purchase our own organic cotton yarn. That's unusual in the apparel industry. As a result, our knitters are producing our socks before investing in their main raw material. With each purchase order we make, our knitters use the yarn we at Maggie's own, and bill us as if it's theirs. We deduct the cost of the yarn, but we pay them as a full-package vendor. This helps their cash flow and assures us both that our organic yarn is tracked through every step of production. Our financial advisors think we're crazy, acting like a bank to our vendors. But we see it differently. We could move all of our sock production off-shore. We would have to purchase hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of yarn in advance. That would save us 30+%. But we believe in partnering with our suppliers. It helps us secure good quality organic cotton. And we help grow manufacturing jobs in the US. A win-win-win-win situation.
