ANOTHER CLOTHING COMPANY?
I hear you, but do you have any clothes that were made in the USA?
Pumpkin (named after our cat) was started in 2022 to achieve the goal of creating ethical, sustainable and affordable clothing in the states that also supports a good cause.
Buy from us and we'll donate half of the profits to charity to help animals in need, starting with the MSPCA and other local animal rescue organizations to recognize the amazing work they've done for Pumpkin and others.
The Cat Eyes T-Shirt was featured on Spectrum News 1 in Worcester, MA.
The blank shirt is made from 100% US-grown cotton in Los Angeles, California by Los Angeles Apparel. It is heavy, durable and virtually shrink free with a broken-in, vintage texture, a more generous fit and a slightly higher neck line.
It is custom embroidered (by yours, truly) with the Cat Eyes design in Massachusetts using high-quality, sustainable materials from US-based companies to ensure durability through dozens of wash cycles and increase the lifespan of your garment.
Yo! I'm Kevin Lipert, a scientist, musician and the owner of Pumpkin!
I first wanted to start a clothing company when I found it nearly impossible to find anything made in the USA when shopping around.
The Cat Eyes logo was inspired by the story of my girlfriend and her once-stray cat, Pumpkin.
Through the power of social media and human kindness, he was rescued from the streets of New Jersey and brought to his forever home in Massachusetts. He is perservering through cancer, asthma and diabetes, but handles it like a champ.
