How A Conscious Clothing Garment Is Made
We wanted to pull back the curtain and give you a behind the scenes of our production process. All of our garments are made to order, so it all starts with you, our amazing customer, hitting “send” on your order. Your order lands in our inbox. From there it is added to our “cut list.” Today we are following a Woodland Jumpsuit from fabric bolt to finished garment.
Once we receive an order, we pull the proper sized pattern from our rack.
Cara carefully lays out the pattern pieces, paying attention to the grain and the layout, creating as little scrap waste as possible. We pre-wash our fabrics in-house to prevent shrinkage once the garment is finished.
The cut pattern pieces get neatly stacked on the sewing rack.
Our sewers grab a stack and start sewing. They fit the patten pieces together like a puzzle to bring the garment to life. We batch same color and style garments together for efficiency.
We add the hand screen printed tag during the sewing process.
Once sewn, the garment is trimmed.
Next the cover stitch is applied.
Then the snaps are added.
Finally the garment is finished, any stray threads are snipped and rolled with a lint roller. Then each garment carefully inspected before being folded and packaged for shipping.
We reuse scraps to thoughtfully wrap each order and tie up with one of our signature scissor stickers. Then we pack it up, free of plastic (whenever possible), and send it off to its new owner.
Where we hope she will unwrap and enjoy for years to come!
