About This Site

Solidstate.guide is a website that lets you find out exactly where in the USA your Solid State Clothing t-shirts were grown and made. It’s a key part of our commitment to radical transparency in the making of our clothing.

How do I track my t-shirt?

Each Solid State Clothing t-shirt has a label attached with a code that allows you to track how and where that shirt was made. There are two ways to track your shirt: by scanning the QR code or entering the alphanumeric tracking number manually.

How to scan the QR code

  1. Locate the tracking label at the front bottom hem of your shirt.

  2. Get out your phone.

  3. Open the photo app.

  4. Take a photo of the QR code.

  5. The QR code will open your web browser app and take you directly to a web page with information on your t-shirt’s supply chain.

How to enter the alphanumeric code manually

  1. Locate the tracking label at the front bottom hem of your shirt.

  2. Find the alphanumeric tracking number on the back side of the tracking label.

  3. Open your web browser of choice and go to solidstate.guide.

  4. Type the alphanumeric code into the tracking number box.

  5. Click “Track Your Shirt.”

What is transparency?

Transparency means we let you see exactly where and how your clothing is made, from the farmers who grew the cotton to the folks who sew it together. Altogether, those companies make up our supply chain. You get the name, website, and contact information of every company in our supply chain.

It sounds basic, but most clothing brands keep their supply chains secret. In fact, many brands don’t even know who some of the companies in their supply chain are, especially at the early stages like farming and spinning yarn.

So, what we’re doing is pretty radical. We do it because you should know #WhoMadeYourClothes—and we’re proud to tell you about them.

(In case you don’t have time to visit in person, you can watch videos of our visits to several of the companies in our supply chain.)

Why does transparency matter?

Not so long ago, most of the clothing Americans wore was made in America. The people who made it were your neighbors.

Today, 98% of clothing purchased in the United State is made overseas. That makes it really hard for you to know anything about where or how your clothes were made. Sure, a brand can say the people who make your clothing are treated fairly, or that factories are environmentally friendly. But how do you know that’s true? You don’t, and often it’s not.

A report from Fashion Revolution found only 1 of 62 major fashion brands and retailers they surveyed discloses a list of all its production sites. "This is a problem because fragmented and opaque supply chains can allow exploitative and unsafe working conditions to thrive while obscuring who has the responsibility and power to redress them."

That's why Solid State Clothing is committed to 100% transparency of our supply chain. We not only let you know where every step of our t-shirt manufacturing happens; we make it easy by attaching a label to every t-shirt with a code you can scan or enter on this website to get details.

Thank you for being a part of our mission to build a more sustainable, ethical fashion industry.
