Sword & Plough recycles thousands of pounds of military surplus that would otherwise be thrown away. S&P combines these durable materials with other military grade fabrics and incorporate them into fashionable designs. They work with U.S. manufacturers that are owned or partially staffed by veterans, and donate 10% of their profits to veteran initiatives, thereby amplifying a core aspect of their mission. S&P embodies a revolution in made in USA sustainable and social impact fashion.

Founders Emily and Betsy Núñez grew up in a military family at West Point. At Airborne School, Emily heard about many challenges that veterans face and as the only ROTC cadet at Middlebury College, she became keenly aware of the civil-military divide that exists in the U.S. She was also conscious of the incredible amount of military surplus gear that goes to waste. Emily was inspired to create positive change, and she and her sister Betsy saw bags (accessories used by almost every person in their day-to-day life) as a tool to implement that change.
