How our factory gives back to education



As an all-American made and manufactured factory, we love to give back to our own New York community. In the recent wake up calls to climate change and global warming, at Clutch Made we try to minimise our footprint and global impact by donating left over or unused materials to foundations that can reuse it for different purposes.

We work with foundations like the center for the Holographic Arts, Brooklyn Acting Lab, and Chabad Early Learning Center to find new ways of giving our material a second life. The fabric that we donate gets used in different ways for each foundation. Letters that we have recieved from these places we have donated to have helped us see where our materials are going and how we have given them a second life.

To us this is design done right. The Chabad Early Learning Center is a non-profit childcare centre located in the Upper West Side of Manhattan. It is a non-denominational facility, accepting children from diverse socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds. Their philosphy is to encourage kindness, respect, compassion, confidence, and responsibility. The Chabad Early Learning Center uses our material donations for their Materials for the Arts, Department of Cultural Affairs program. In a classroom setting, these materials are used within the art centres and creates a rich and vivid classroom environment. The Materials for the Arts makes it possible for unique and creative materials to be available to children.
