All of our designing and production takes place in Denver, CO. Currently we have a team of two people. Meçlâ designs and sews the very first sample, then it is handed over to another local designer, Mimi Shim Studio, to make the pattern as well as sew the orders. They work closely together to get the fit and sizing right before the style is launched. All orders are made-to-order and take 1-3 weeks to ship.
Some of our clothing is made from deadstock fabric from LA. This means that the fabric we purchase is similar to the idea of thrifting for clothing. We buy from a warehouse that is full of fabric that has been over produced by large companies or considered slightly flawed.
We also use cotton fabrics (Sile Bezi, Muslin, and Cotton Voile prints) sourced from a fairtrade, cruelty-free production company in Turkey. The majority of fabrics they make are hand-loomed with the exception of the floral cotton voile. They value working with small businesses and allow me to order in very small quantities.
A few of our most recent fabrics have been purchased through a traditional wholesale company. These fabrics are 100% cotton and are bought in very small quantities.
More about us
Fashion is far from sustainable, but we hope to make a difference by only making what we can sell and design clothing that will last. We value ethical working conditions, livable wages, and local production. We also love our diverse Denver community and often work with and support other local women-owned, creative businesses.
