Why create Catholic Apparel instead of Christian or something more inclusive?
That’s a good question. The reason I desired to create a dedicated Catholic apparel company was because there weren’t clothes I liked. There are a plethora of Christian companies out there doing some great work and creating some really cool threads. Grateful Apparel comes to mind. I have nothing against wearing and repping their clothes but I want to promote our Church. I want to share the one true faith with as many like-minded people as possible. What better way to do that, than to plaster it right upon your chest?
For being the world’s largest religion on earth, Catholics don’t have many options when it comes to Catholic apparel. Granted there are a few gems out there. I just really wasn’t pleased with the small selection. So, after many months of prayer and discernment, SIGNUMX was born.
There’s such a wealth of resources in the Bible that SIGNUMX will never be able to scratch the surface for. Hopefully, other people will join us and start their own Catholic apparel companies so we don’t have to do it all! As members of the body of Christ, we truly desire the best for our clothing competition. But, as someone who wants something that I am proud to wear, us Catholic designers need to really shake things up.
There’s plenty of hate in world thrown our way, the least we can do is make a few shirts showing our love for Christ. I only pray that starting SIGNUMX was God’s will.
