Two distinct clothing brands (Purpose & Prafetic) that launched on two separate coasts (Portland/New Jersey) merged to create As Filthy Rags! So what about the name, what is it’s significance?
The concept for our name derives from the very familiar prophetic utterance of Isaiah, “But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousness are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away (Isa 64:6). Our brand name calls/demands us to recognize that everything we do as believers in Christ that is done apart from Christ, not done totally unto Him and done through His power is as valuable to Christ as filthy rags, or a mistral garment. Even if it is esteemed by men, complimented and exalted; in the eyes of our Savior, it’s simply a filthy rag. Only in Christ are we made clean, and our offerings pleasing unto God.
As we are in the process of introducing our new line, one of our tasks is to assemble our screen printer. One of our many prayers to Christ was that He would provide us with the ability to do our own printing. Our Lord is faithful, the Perfect Provider! As you can see from the pictures, along with building the screen printer there will be much clean-up to be done in our in-house-basement studio (all unto the glory of Jesus Christ). We are exited and anticipating the Lord doing GREAT THINGS with this clothing brand/ministry.
