Rural Cloth and CMC Brands announced a joint partnership leveraging strategic operational efficiencies to spur further growth of both organizations. CMC Brands will assist Rural Cloth with a custom product line expansion to complement its cap and T-shirt programs and serve as Rural Cloth’s warehousing and fulfillment provider.

“Rural Cloth could not be more excited to partner with a long-standing powerhouse of design, product development, procurement, and warehousing,” said Brandon Bates, Rural Cloth president and founder.

“Rural Cloth will join brands Dakota Grizzly and Canyon Guide Outfitters within the CMC Brands management group. We have over 75 years of experience in manufacturing and distribution and a passion for Americana apparel that reflects our own textile roots in the Midwest. This strategic partnership is a perfect complement to our mutual vision and goals,” said Ellen Brin, Co-owner and CEO.

“This partnership gives Rural Cloth economies of scale and years of experience that a young company could only dream of,” said Chad Carman, Rural Cloth COO. “CMC Brands has operated successfully for three generations and provides an incredible level of knowledge and expertise.”
