Our Story


Patricia Davis/Founder
CATA - Consumers Against Toxic Apparel,LLC
was created out of the need to further service our clients at Silver Needle & Thread Custom Sewn Clothing with organic clothing. We found that once we completed many of our clients’ custom sewn wardrobes they began to request that we source other organic items for their family. They relied on us to fill this special need and we could not say no, so we rolled up our sleeves and began to do so. 

We found ourselves dedicating a lot of time to researching organic companies, looking for everything from baby clothes, to socks, to sleepwear and men's clothing. The task became enormous and consumed much of our time needed to cut and sew. We needed a more efficient way to further service our clients and not leave them behind.


CATA was created with the purpose to connect conscious organic apparel consumers with organic clothing companies nationwide while creating a resource and providing an opportunity to save. The transition from toxic and chemical clothing to organic clothing can be overwhelming and quite expensive. We talked with business owners and CEO’s, discussing their goals, as well as, their mission. We found out what they were actively doing now to ensure the integrity of their products. Several of the companies we reached out to mailed samples of their products and informative marketing materials for our review. We liked how well we connected to each company, understood their missions and saw active consciousness displayed, and so we continued on.


The creation and launch of CATA happened quickly; because of the innovative vision and pioneering spirit of a few companies. We are grateful for the following companies who chose to honor the CATA pledge right from the beginning: 
Foxfibre, bgreen Apparel, Vresis Limited, , Indigenous Fair Trade Organic Clothing, Fed by Threads and Imagine Green Wear. The value in connecting the organic apparel industry is boundless; these companies recognize it and wanted to contribute. To offer consumers a 10% - 15% discount in order to convert their lifestyle to organic is definitely a move in the right direction towards sustainability and increasing the demand for organic apparel and we are adding new companies as they choose to honor the pledge.

So many consumers have no idea how stylish organic clothing can be and shy away from the idea. CATA is showing you the style to help you change. Consumers now have choices they never knew existed along with the opportunity to save and explore their style for one full year. It’s a situation where everyone wins. We won’t stop spreading the word until every household in America is informed that they do have choices when it comes to buying organic, natural, pure, clean and safe clothing. When you wear organic you’re improving and protecting your health, reducing the use of toxic chemicals in manufacturing, cleaning up our waterways around the world, reducing air pollution and allowing our precious planet to heal.

We invite you to Wear the Change. Wear Organic. Change your life and take the CATA Pledge Today.
