FAIR + SLOW

MANIFESTO

With purchasing one of our designs you choose to be part of the FAIR SLOW FASHION-Movement. We do what we do with pride and love and want you to feel the same.

We have always been committed to socially and environmentally responsible manufacturing. Our partner in Slovakia is a small manufacturer and provides three workplaces in the rural area.
Second to oil, the clothing and textile industry is the largest polluter worldwide. According to the Global Fashion Agenda, a recent Pulse Of The Fashion Industry report stated that fashion creates 4% of the Earth’s waste each year - 92 million tons of it- which is frightening to say the least. Much of this ends up on the cutting room floor, pieces of material that are remnants from the production process itself. As a solely “small batch production” business, we have this constantly in mind when we consider our materials as well as scalability.
By supporting a small brand like ours, you are saying 'yes' to small batch manufacturing, attention to detail, making to order, no stockpiling, no over-runs, no cheap labour, and no land-fill, and for that, we thank you. We’re happy to offer the production of single pieces in custom colors and a custom fit - therefor - we’re never really sold out and you can get your dress just the way you want it.
We do not throw away our samples - we either sell them at a fraction of the cost at one of our sample sales, or donate them to charity.
However, we can always do better. And we really try.
