STILLWATER — A new company based out of Stillwater is selling merchandise to promote free thought and be a beacon for like-minded individuals.
Mallorey Schaller, founder of Revolt Over Tyranny Apparel Co., is a former Spanish teacher in a Saratoga County school district who was fired for not complying with the COVID testing mandate instituted by her school; Mallorey had tested positive for COVID prior. In response, she and her husband have created and now officially launched ROTapparel.com.
“I always tell my students to ‘think enough of yourself to think for yourself,’ and I think I demonstrated that,” said Mallorey. “It’s heartbreaking that it resulted in me having to leave them, but I had to show integrity.”
ROT’s designs can be worn and displayed as they sell t-shirts, canvas totes, ceramic mugs, insulated stainless steel mugs, frosted glass beer steins, Christmas ornaments, and more. Mallorey’s husband is the graphic designer, but together the husband-and-wife team is constantly coming up with new designs. They design, print, and ship everything in-house out of Stillwater.
“I have had a lot of people reach out to me in support,” said Mallorey. “Our aim is to spread the message of freedom and show other people that they are not alone.”
