Color is more important than ever as a mood booster and extension of expression. There are far more color ways available than just three years ago, so it is worth a look at our online shop. Soft pastels are trending as are bright, attention-grabbing colors. There are so many amazing colors to choose from!

Athleisure or comfortable, stretchy athletic leisure wear continues to rise in popularity as many people are still working from home or just looking for added coziness once done with work.

Fleece is on fire! Independent Trading Company is seeing increased demand for softer colors, but also tie dyes and pigment dyes for that worn in and weathered look. We recommend the Special Blend style PRM33SBZ for ultimate coziness when working from home or for after your yoga session. The IND4000 remains a tried-and-true classic hooded sweatshirt, perfect for screen printing logo, art, and other designs.
