stone + cloth, started by a man with a dream, is a company that makes backpacks, totes, and miscellaneous, basic clothing articles. In exchange he give scholarships to children in need to further, and in some cases begin, their education. Matthew Clough, the owner, created this after a visit to Tanzania, where he went hiking, reached a summit, and learned that the guide, Benson, who had been carrying his bag the whole time, did not get paid enough to receive an education. Clough then bought a sewing machine and created his first backpack, “The Benson” and from there it began. Together, we can carry an education.
