Welcome to Factory45

Factory45 takes sustainable apparel companies from idea to launch.

I’m Shannon Whitehead, founder of Factory45. In 2010, I started a sustainable clothing company that was the highest funded fashion project on Kickstarter. Since then, I’ve been helping other aspiring entrepreneurs set up supply chains in the U.S. and get their ideas to market. If you’re trying to manufacture your own apparel product, sustainably and ethically, Factory45 is for you.


Source fabric, find a manufacturer & raise money to fund production.

Applications for the Factory45 2015 program open in February. Get on the list to hear about it first!
