We manufacture in the Czech Republic because it's our home, in Portugal because they have great modern technologies and it's in the European Union, and in Mongolia because we support local businesses trying to create added value and fight against shipping of raw cashmere to China.
Our silk dress and pleated skirt are made in a factory in the north of Portugal in the town of Gondomar. This factory works for a number of major global brands and fashion houses. They specialize in working with delicate materials, silk, lace, embroidery and complicated cuts.
For our casual collection made of 100% organic cotton, we chose a factory in the Portuguese town of Barcelos. She cooperates with several local suppliers, from whom she buys fabrics and other additional materials. We found an amazing organic cotton from Luis Soares that is incredibly soft, strong and comfortable. Our Not Just a Tee, J-POP top and pants were made from this cotton wonder right here.
When we entered this factory in Gondomar, Portugal, we couldn't believe we were in production. The owner of this factory pays attention to the ecological way of production and demands the same from his business partners. So, our Hug Me Double belt got into the best hands that care for the world's most famous fashion brands.
This was love at first sight. On the outskirts of Ulaanbaatar is this family business headed by Ariunna, who took care of her and us as if they were her own. Ariunna has both a sense of beauty and a sense of order, which in sweater knitting and business partnerships is an incredibly valuable combination. Most of our cashmere collection is a collaboration with Ariunna.
This young firm in Ulaanbaatar successfully competes with the local Kashmiri monopoly. At its helm is a Deli woman who left the corporate world and ventured into uncharted waters. Its goal is to make Mongolia a quality production partner and not just a supplier of raw cashmere. And in the meantime, she sews our men's collection for us.
We talked with Pavla, the head of a traditional Czech manufacturer of high-quality fashion, about how it is difficult to find experienced seamstresses today, so they have to pamper themselves. The all-female team is the author collective of our limited collection of silk nightgowns/pajamas.
