The Rational Dress Society is pleased to announce our latest initiative: Make America Rational Again! For the next several months, we will be soliciting your gently used, and emphatically discarded Ivanka Trump brand garments, to be recycled into new, 100% Made in the USA, Special Edition JUMPSUITS!

Despite President Trump’s calls to “Buy American, hire American,” over the last several months, more than 53 tons of Ivanka Trump-brand clothing have been imported into the United States from China. Meanwhile, donations of Ivanka Trump brand clothes are up 223% since last year. We, the members of the Rational Dress Society, propose to take those unwanted Ivanka Trump clothes and transform them into something rational: 100% Made in the USA, Special Edition JUMPSUITS! All proceeds from the sale of Special Edition JUMPSUITS will go to support advocacy organizations dedicated to fair labor practices in the United States.    

Make America Rational Again will proceed in four stages:

  • Phase 1: Collect used Ivanka Trump brand clothing
  • Phase 2: Have used Ivanka Trump brand clothing recycled into post-consumer yarn
  • Phase 3: Weave post-consumer yarn into new fabric
  • Phase 4: Make special edition JUMPSUITS!

Our new Special Edition Post-Consumer JUMPSUITS will retain the traces of the original garment’s dye, now reconstituted into a beautiful multi-color gradient.
