NEW England Members: Osmium & Tonewood Maple
Osmium is a designer and online retailer of men’s casual apparel, based in Stoneham, MA. While their apparel is understated and distinctive, Osmium produces thoughtfully detailed, high quality garments that are built to last. Their styles are just outside the ordinary: Mariner pants, Toques, and very long shorts. The line offers a finely tuned fit, uncommon details, and fabrics with depth and character. Osmium is the creation of Mark Paigen, the former owner/founder of Chaco footwear.
Osmium chose to join 1% for the Planet, in order to give a stronger voice to their philanthropic efforts. Giving a portion of sales to worthy causes has been a company goal since day one.They believe that bigger things happen when people work together, so they are thrilled to have joined this community of like-minded businesses. They believe that “in this time when dollars are precious, we all must remember to sustain our planet, it’s the only one we have.” Well said!
Being from Vermont, it’s a given that maple syrup is one of my favorite treats! Therefore, I was excited to find out from our New England Network Director, Barbara, that a maple producer was joining our network! Tonewood is not your standard mom & pop maple producer, and according to their webpage, they are “redefining a standard for elegance and quality in maple products. Through collaboration with expert sugarmakers, [they] produce pure maple syrups and other specialties. [Their] products are single-sourced, unblended, and free of additives.” How tasty does that sound?! Check out their website for all of their delicious products, including syrups, wafers, cream, flakes and… you can even adopt a tree!
