Aerie will not sell garbage that falls apart. We typically offer products that are designed and constructed in the US (preferably Montana), and made from organic or recycled materials. Whenever possible, we support smaller companies that are able to provide us with the highest-quality products our customers expect. Our first aid kits are a good example. They are made here in Montana by a small, family-owned business, Thorn Creek Sewing. They are guaranteed for life and virtually indestructible. Our organic-cotton, made-in-the-US t-shirts are designed and printed in Missoula. Our sweatshirts are made from organic cotton and recycled polyester. They are very soft!
