A world of clothing in Detroit's backyard


Imagine giving the best kind of gift this holiday season: apparel inspired by countries from around the world that match your purchase with a donation to the country that inspired your purchase. 24-year-old Mallory Brown, founder of World Clothes Line, is the visionary behind this local start-up and her Farmington Hills company  is poised to make a serious impact both locally and abroad this holiday season.

The idea is simple: purchase clothing from World Clothes Line's online store and World Clothes Line will match your purchase by delivering new items to people in need in the country of your choice.

According to Brown, almost 2.7 billion, or 40 percent of the world's population, live on less than two dollars a day. Daily necessities like food and water are a top priority while clothing is re-worn to rags. After traveling to exotic destinations like Thailand, Laos, Bali and Costa Rica, Brown established World Clothing Line as a way to give back to the families she encountered on her trips.

World Clothing Line's products are unique designs manufactured on American Apparel clothing. World Clothing Line partners with another Michigan-based company, Create My Tee.com of Ann Arbor, to ensure high-quality merchandise.
