Why Goods of conscience
Our Social Fabric™ is woven in the indigenous tradition, allowing Guatemalan weavers to preserve their heritage trade. Read more about the production process here.
The cotton in our fabrics are naturally pest-resistant. In Guatemala, our agricultores use a method of planting where they use fewer pesticides in production. We prioritize eco-friendly materials free of harsh dyes and chemicals, at all stages of fabrication.
Made with fabric that means something. Our handwoven cloth includes a manufactured strand of fiberglass, signifying the connection between God and humans. Each aspect of Goods of Conscience's work is meant to dignify the worker, and to exemplify the principles of Catholic Social Teaching.
Life is full of precious moments, so running to the dry cleaner's is probably not top priority. Goods of Conscience's garments are machine washable to save you time and money.

Active (glass fiber)
Our founder made the decision to weave strands of fiberglass into our Social Fabric™, to foremost, copyright and prevent underpaying the craftsmanship of indigenous, Guatemalan cotton. Moreover, to promote an active lifestyle, through safe means seen in the reflective quality of the fiberglass.
