Aloha and Welcome to Human Revolution Clothing! This moment has been long awaited and we are beyond excited and grateful to share it with you! Many people have asked how HRC started and well, what better time to tell our humble beginnings than now!
"Human Revolution Clothing started on August 8th, 2008 with an idea to make undies for yogis. I was a serious ashtanga yoga student at the time and was always on the search for the perfect underwear for my yoga practice. If you have practiced ashtanga or bikram yoga, you know what I mean! I couldn't find what I was looking for so I decided why not make them myself! At the time I didn't know the first things about textiles and so started what I thought would be a little innocent research on sustainable and organic fabrics. What I ended up finding was the toxic chemicals I have been fighting to get out of my food were being used on practically all of my clothing. I thought my thumb was on the proverbial organic heartbeat so to say. But I had never heard about the GMO in cotton, the mass suicides of cotton farmers in India (to the tune of 250,000 and growing), the increase of cancer, diabetes, heart disease, fertility problems, birth defects, etc from the use of the chemical fertilizers and insecticides sprayed on GM cotton farms around the world. I realized that our clothing was FARMED. From that moment on, I knew I'd found my life's work. The last five years were spent learning, reading, researching, traveling to India, getting challenged, finding new ways, meeting new people, gathering my information, dreaming big, and taking action (with the help of many wonderful people along the way). The outcome of all that, is Human Revolution Clothing." - Lauren Adelman - Founder
