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 (unisex) 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.
