EXTREME CONDITIONS

 

11th Loop is a sustainable company striving to provide our community with planet friendly textiles and dedicated to raising eco awareness. Good ideas don’t only survive; they thrive in these harsh desert conditions. 11th Loop is developing a specialized adaptation to the climate and culture of the 21st century. Created from a natural need to have more planet friendly fabrics in our World. You will see, feel and appreciate the difference of 11th Loop. The symmetric photos and realistic floral patterns will have all heads turning. Our inspiration comes from deep within the Sonoran Desert, a place we call “Home”. This was a place with rugged mountains, high mesas, deep canyons, bubbly clouds and long horizons. As boys the brothers would spend all of their hours in this Desert playground. Watching flowers bloom, cactus fruit ripen, and palo verde beans grow plump and green. Eating off the Earth, building shelters, and living happy. The boys knew they were among true beauty.

“Its not just a Style, it’s a Life Style.”

11th Loop is working extra hard to:

Reducing the amount of waste

Rebuild with what we have

Repair what is broken

Reuse what has already been used

Recycle thoughts and ideas

SONORAN DESERT FOOTHILLS

The Kastelic Brothers are from a place that old timers call “standing-up country”. The early Spanish settlers would call it “Desplobado” meaning “desolate wilderness.” The Foothills is a place full of rugged mountains, hilly terrain, deep canyons, and high mesas.  Only a few of the bravest and boldest have ventured into the Sonoran Foothills to search for an new way of life. The Kastelic brothers grew up exploring the hot, rocky, rattle snake infested desert rich with evidence of prehistoric Hohokam Indain culture.  The boys would stumble over petroglyphs, pottery sherds, arrowheads, and matate stones that lie disguised within the landscape. Sometimes back in these rugged foothills they would also find old abandoned mines. Early on they both recognized the difference in these town cultures, understanding they were more connected to the Native ways of life. Living in the Earth, not on the Earth. Now at 11th Loop the mission is to create a sustainable and biodegradable company. Leaving only green imprints. Our love for Nature drives our mission to ‘Save the Sonoran Desert’ and other magical places around the World.

Did you know that the average server produces the same emissions as a 15 mpg SUV?

HostGator hosts over 4,000,000 websites on its shared and reseller web hosting servers. That means a lot of servers, and a lot of carbon emissions. So we asked ourselves, What can we do to be part of the climate change solution? We took steps to minimize our environmental impact at the office, but still we weren’t satisfied. We then switched to 36% more efficient servers, but still we weren’t satisfied!
