Garment manufacturing is the second most environmentally destructive industry on the planet. Every brand, small business and customer has a role to play in ensuring that this changes.
Our fabric is remnant cotton jersey sourced from fabric suppliers in Phnom Penh.
As a result of Cambodia’s pervasive garment manufacturing industry and issues that occur along the fashion industry’s incredibly complex supply chain, huge amounts of fabric are deemed unusable by brands on a daily basis. These fabric left overs are sold on from brands and factories to a local fabric supply industry; a country-wide industry that runs directly off the back of the devastatingly wasteful habits of global fashion brands.
We scour the warehouses of our preferred suppliers, finding what we believe to be the best quality cotton jersey. We burn test every fabric we buy to ensure we are making garments with very little or no synthetic fibres.
We know our fabric has limitations. We know we can’t trace the true origins of our fabric. But we are doing what we can, within the context in which we work. We are very aware of our impact on the local economy, and we choose to place our money where it has the greatest impact.
With this is mind, we are deep in the midst of researching additional and alternative fabric options. Within the next year, we aim to offer a selection of progressive fabrics sourced from throughout the world.
We use fabric that already exists and produce small runs to meet consumer demand.
We don't believe in waste. We purchase what exists, cut to minimise waste and use fabric scraps to produce packaging and women's underwear for our stores in Kampot.
We don't over pack our production runs and we produce according to demand.
