From sketches to the final product, we are involved in every step of the journey. Every piece of fabric is hand selected. We scrutinize over every detail about the fabric such as feel, stretch, weight, and benefits (anti-odour, tolerance to sweat, etc.). We only team up with manufacturers who have a long standing reputation for quality, fair trade, fair wages, and ethically sourced materials. All of our products are completely custom to our specifications. We live in our samples and put them through rigorous real-life testing making as many necessary changes to be perfect.
