Our Story

Tortoise & the Hare's sewing studio is tucked into the hillside of Lancaster, Pennsylvania farm where Rosina's children are the 4th generation to live. 
We practice lean manufacturing to avoid unnecessary waste and overproduction.  It's important to us that we use our natural resources wisely, so with each collection we offer a variety of products so as to use up even the tiniest scraps.
Our clothing is made from natural fibers with our favorites being made of linen, hemp, and wool- all textiles that do not require pesticides and/or are regenerative.
We use eco-friendly dyes that are 100% natural and plant-based and entirely biodegradable. Rainwater is used to dye our garments and the afterbaths are used for compost or to fertilize local fields which in turn benefits local ecosystems.

We are passionate about the health of our planet and strive to create clothing that is good for your skin, the earth, and your child's future. 
Much love, Rosina + family
