Clay Dyes Add Eco-Safe Color to Sustainable Tees and More for Women, Men and Children

BESSEMER, AL (January 21, 2010) – Once again proving that comfy clothing, rich color and eye-catching designs don’t have to be chemically-based, Earth Creations introduces its spring/summer line of clay-dyed, sustainable imprinted sportswear. Featuring a colorful collection of organic cotton tees and tanks, the line brings bold prints and flattering fits to women, men and children’s offerings.
“There’s nothing more comforting than a favorite t-shirt, and even more reassuring is one that’s made from all natural, eco-friendly materials,” said Joy Maples, co-founder and vice president of sales and product development for Earth Creations. “Our spring and summer sportswear collection is ideal for those who make environmentally responsible choices, yet also value good-old-fashioned fun.”
Available in multiple prints, colors and styles, the fresh new Earth Creations sportswear collection gets its bright designs and sunny shades, such as citrine, sunstone and celadon, from an ancient eco-safe clay-dyeing process that renders rich hues on the line’s comfortable and casual pieces.

Since 1996, Earth Creations has manufactured high-quality, sustainable clothing for women, men and children. An unsuspecting bike ride during which one of the company founders ended up covered in red clay became the impetus for creating a clothing line that revived the ancient and eco-friendly practice of clay dyeing. The only company to offer a complete line of clay-dyed apparel, Earth Creations renders rich, beautiful eco-colors on sustainable and organic fabrics, including industrial hemp, organic cotton and bamboo. A women’s casual wear line and an imprinted sportswear line are offered, and all items are either made or finished in the United States. Earth Creations clothing can be found at more than 600 retailers nationwide, from Whole Foods to Dillard’s. To learn more about the company, locate a retailer or shop online, visit
