WHY DID I START THIS?

Chris Schup

Root & Ramble is a passion project. This brand is a hybrid of my creative heart and my eco-conscious soul. It was inspired by my 25-year journey as an organic gardener. A journey that launched me into a headfirst, learn-by-doing approach to life as a farm volunteer, biodynamic practitioner, and student of aquaponics.

I am driven by unwavering curiosity and a desire to do good by this planet. I am one person trying to make a larger-than-one-person impact. And I am not alone.

The not-so-secret mission of Root & Ramble is to champion the hard-working people who grow and nurture things, and to inspire others to join the movement and change our world. 

The way I see it, many of us are going in the same direction. At the end of every day, if we can say “today I was part of the solution,” then we’re doing all right.

I understand that Root & Ramble is a small part of the big picture. We make clothing and gear for gung-ho growers and nurturers of the natural world. Unfortunately, t-shirts by themselves can’t do much. But on the right person, surrounded by a like-minded (and equally well-dressed) community…these shirts can make everything a little better.

Thanks for caring.

The rest of the story. Creativity is my craft. I am a graphic designer and a drummer. I began my aquaponics and biodynamics work while living in Hawaii. I founded and organized the annual Strawberry Fields Festival in Richmond, VA, and I worked as an ice and snow sculpture artist in Hovden, Norway. Today I share the planet with my partner Kate, two dogs, nine chickens and a '72 Ford pickup.

SIZE CHART

We want our shirts to pair perfectly with your rambling lifestyle

MEN'S TEES

Our men's tees are slim-fitting. That means they'll follow your body's natural curves. If you prefer a looser fitting t-shirt, or if you have a larger build, order a size up. If you plan to launder your tee in warm water or use a dryer, order a size up. If you're in-between two sizes, order the larger size. If you have a slender build, roll with your normal size.
