Bamboo Fabric, Free Fly Apparel and Local Artisan Coffee

Free Fly Bamboo Apparel

Free Fly Apparel is a family-owned business created to provide outstanding comfort and simplicity in outdoor apparel through their unique bamboo material. Their company name is an ode to their childhoods spent fishing on the water and love of outdoor adventure.

Why Bamboo?

Bamboo is incredibly breathable and naturally odor resistant. Free Fly’s bamboo fabrics are made with ultra-fine yarn giving them superior softness and UV protection of UPF (equivalent to SPF in sunscreen) 20-50+! They also blend certified organic bamboo with quick drying materials to keep you cool and dry in their performance collection. With Free Fly’s simple design, their apparel isn’t just for outdoor adventure. Dakota paired their Men’s Bamboo Heritage Tee with the Howler Brothers H Bar B Tech Longsleeve and Patagonia LoPro Trucker Hat for a coffee date at Side Bar Artisan Coffee in downtown Grand Haven! Sydney is wearing the Free Fly Thermal Fleece Cardigan with a C’est Moi Bamboo ¾ Sleeve top and a Prana Lindell Scarf.

Free Fly’s Sustainable Mission

Free Fly’s responsibility to the people and the planet is rooted in their love for outdoor adventure. They are always learning and innovating new ways to make their quality gear sustainably. They use organic bamboo that has no pesticides, no irrigation, and is renewable. Natural solvent, sodium hydroxide, is used in production of the bamboo fibers before they are spun into yarn so that no harsh chemicals are needed. Providing a cleaner garment, factory, and environment. Their apparel is designed in the US and produced in select areas around the world, such as Vietnam. Each product is cut and sewn ethically in certified Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production (WRAP) facilities.

Bamboo can give you superior comfort and performance whether you’re out on the lake fishing or out on the town grabbing coffee! Check out Side Bar Artisan Coffee on your next walk through downtown Grand Haven. They have some unique flavors like the cinnamon brown sugar latte and caramel & vanilla cafè glacè. Shop our Freefly collection online or at Earth’s Edge Monday through Saturday from 10-8 and Sunday 12-5 to discover all bamboo has to offer!
