As believers, we like to support other Christian companies when we can. Not only that, it is nice to express the message of Christ without having to say a word. Buying from Christian clothing companies allow you to do just that! Here are 4 popular and up-and-coming clothing companies that are centered around Christian values –
Kerusso: Print, Produce, Proclaim
This Christian apparel brand uses the Greek word Kerusso, meaning “to herald,” as its name to signify that they are passionate about proclaiming the gospel through their products. As wholesale producers of T-shirts, hats, wristbands, jewelry, and other gifts and accessories, they supply a number of Christian retailers across the nation. In fact, they are regarded by many as the #1 Christian t-shirt producer.
Although they constantly change their merchandise to match trends and styles, their message stays the same. CEO and founder, Vic Kennett, says that the message appearing on the merchandise is the main focus. He believes Christian messages printed on products such as t-shirts and hats are a clever way for Christians to start up conversations with their friends and family. His ultimate hope is that his company’s products will set the stage for nonbelievers to hear and receive the gospel.
