It's important for us to work with like minded people who value sustainable practices, high quality and fair working conditions, just as we do.
As a small brand we have tried various of production ways and have come to the conclusion that to us, simplifying our production process to only have one link in our production chain, is the most effective, easiest and most sustainable way for us.
Before, we sourced our textiles from eco friendly suppliers around the world, then had our styles sewn in a small sewing house in Bulgaria, who employed women from the local area. This process was quite costly to us, and as there were many steps in our value-chain we had constantly delays, with our fabric coming from one place, our lining from another and so on. With our small batch productions, this process didn't really work well for us.
We decided to find a supplier who could deliver the fabrics AND sew our styles. As we are a small company (and still with little finances) it was a struggle to find a supplier with a low minimum of quantity in each style. As we grow, the quantity of each style grows, but we want to do this in an organic way and let's be honest here, it takes time.
We currently work with Herbal Fab, a family owned business, who is making our newest designs come to life. Herbal Fab supports small brands like ours, to grow in an organic way and their knowledge about sustainable fashion production is a big inspiration to us. We are looking forward to continue our work with them.
Furthermore, with our relocation to Bali, we are in the process of finding more suppliers in Bali to connect and build a strong partnership with.
Finding the right partners takes time and we learn from every step we take.
