About Us

Maggie's Organics was founded in 1992 on the premise that all workers could be treated ethically and that clothing could be functional, beautiful and affordable and also constructed of environmentally sustainable materials. Seventeen years later, we are proud to say that our proposition has proven true: Our line of organic and fair trade socks, scarves, tights, loungewear, legwarmers, tees, baby clothes, new stuffed animals and fashionable tops continues to fulfill and strengthen our founding principles:

All of our products are constructed using Certified Organic Cotton or Certified Organic Wool as their main component. * We add in other fibers only when they improve the longevity, durability, and performance of our garments. All components used are fully disclosed on every product label, down to 1/10 of 1%.
Conscious of energy consumed by transporting products across the globe, we develop supply chains as close to home as possible. * We use minimal packaging, knowing that our products' feel and quality speak for themselves.
We work exclusively with business partners who guarantee livable working conditions and independence for their workers. Much of our manufacturing is done in countries with strong labor laws, like Costa Rica and the US. Alternately, when we produce in countries with poor labor and environmental laws, we either find or create worker-owned cooperatives to assure that workers have independence and control.

Maggie's is blessed with customers who have taken time to get to know and support us, and whose insights constantly challenge us to improve. We hope our products earn both your respect and trust, and we look forward to hearing from you!
