Rolling Hills Gin

Since TS Designs launched the 10,000 Pounds of Cotton on our new sister site Solid State Clothing, (our project to bring the American farmer back to the table in the fashion industry), we’ve been amazed at the response. Our series of discussions with people integral to this project called “The Harvest: A Gathering of Conversations for the Future of Cotton,” has brought the textile industry, old and new customers and worldwide press together to better understand our dirt to shirt journey here in North Carolina.

10,000 Pounds of Cotton Project cotton farmer, Andrew Burleson

For our first discussion, we talked to Andrew Burleson, the farmer growing the 10,000 pounds of cotton for our project. Watch the recording of our first discussion below.

Our second conversation was with Wes Morgan, Manager of Rolling Hills Cotton Gin, who talked about the complexities and opportunities of ginning regional cotton.

Watch our recording of the conversation below.

We hope you’ll continue to want to be part of this conversation towards building a new vision for textile production here in the U.S. Stay tuned for our upcoming conversation with another part of our supply chain-the good folks at SpunLab who spin our cotton into yarn.

RSVP for the January 13th event here.
