SUSTAINABILITY

THE COMMUNITY
We believe that one of the greatest forms of sustainability must be to give back to our community, to keep the industry and skills within it alive and our economy thriving. We also believe that fewer products, made better, can be treasured for a long time. We aim to therefore create well-made and beautiful everyday, utility product that our customers will be able to use and love for a long time. Each of our pieces are made by women in the Flats Communities of Cape Town who are highly skilled and experienced machinists, tailors and garment analysts. They are not mass produced in factories, but made in small batches to reduce waste. The time it takes from design to production is longer and slowly and individually crafted with acute attention to detail.
MATERIALS
Designing for a longer life and advancing the use of responsible and ethically produced materials are some of the main priorities in reducing our footprint. Sustainably sourced materials are those that naturally have a lighter imprint on the environment, such as linen, or materials that are consciously produced in a more ethical or responsible manner.

SUPPLIERS 
Our Suppliers consist of a foundation of strong relationships who develop quality fabric from skilled people across Cape Town and in other parts of Southern Africa. Our products have been designed around working with our suppliers and fabrics, Our suppliers are also people who have years of experience in delivering quality and long lasting fabrics and have therefore had a huge impact on our designs and what our brand stands for. We allow the material from our suppliers to dictate the form, function and design of product, be it a garment, detail, component or an accessory. It is an important influence on the way we design our products.
Our goal is to develop cleaner methods from all our suppliers for spinning, weaving, dyeing, sewing, and all the other stages of the production process thereby working with suppliers who are also keen on achieving this in the coming years to help build a better, cleaner earth.

MEASURING FOR DRESS SIZE (Women) 
  1. Measure your bust. To do this, wrap tape around your back and over the fullest part of your bust. Exhale when taking this measurement.
  2. Measure your waist. To do this, wrap tape around the smallest part of your waist, below your ribs and above your navel.
  3. Measure your hips. To do this, wrap tape around the fullest part of your hips, ensuring that tape touches your hipbone on both sides of the top of your leg, but not your buttocks.
  4. Compare measurements to relevant size chart to find your size. Tip: if your measurements fall between two sizes, it is always a good idea to go for the larger size.

Measuring for Trouser Size ( Men and Women) 
  1. Use a standard, up-stretched tape measure.
  2. Use a pair of pants that fit you well.
  3. Lay pants flat on the floor to simplify the measuring process. Pants should not be too worn and should not have any irregularities such as creases or folds, as this may affect the accuracy of your measurements.
  4. Measure the waist of your pants. To do this, smooth the pants out without stretching, and measure flat across the back waistband from one corner to the other with your measuring tape.
  5. Double the measurements obtained from measuring the waistband. This will give you the actual waist size.
  6. Next, you will need to measure the hips of your pants. To do this, measure horizontally across your pants, at the base of the zipper.
  7. Once you’ve measured this, double the number to get the entire measurement.

Measuring for Jacket Size ( Men and Women) 
  1. Measure your bust. To do this, wrap tape around your back and over the fullest part of your bust. Exhale when taking this measurement.
  2. Measure your waist. To do this, wrap tape around the smallest part of your waist, below your ribs and above your navel.
  3. Measure your hips. To do this, wrap tape around the fullest part of your hips, ensuring that tape touches your hipbone on both sides of the top of your leg, but not your buttocks.
  4. Measure your shoulders. To do this, stand with your shoulders relaxed and your back straight. Locate your shoulder points, which are points marked by your acromion bones. Position the tape straight and horizontally from one shoulder point to the other and take these measurements.
  5. Lastly, measure your sleeve length. To do this, slightly bend elbow, then measure the distance from the bone at the base of the back of the neck to the end of the shoulder and down the arm, going around the elbow and ending at the prominent bone on the wrist.
