Our collection consists of fabrics we source from multiple suppliers. When sourcing fabrics it's very important that we know these fabrics are designed and manufactured in factories that match the OEKO-TEX and/or GOTS certifications. This way we know we are buying fabrics that are less harmful to the environment and to people.
Our range of basic fabrics come from fabric importers in The Netherlands and Germany. Next to that, because we sell fabrics specifically for dressmaking, we also decided to add fabrics to the collection that are produced by smaller independent ateliers and manufacturers. In the webshop, you can see from the name of the fabric of which designer the fabric is, but we also want to give you some background on the philosopy of these ateliers as well.
