Here is information about where we sourced fabrics, where they were sewn, and who we sought out for pattern-making, prototype development, and manufacturing advice:
1. Sewing and design co-working studio that helped with prototype development in Los Angeles, CA: http://www.sewfyi.com
-Thank you, Yena!
2. Organic and sustainable soy and cotton fabric supplier in San Francisco, CA: http://picknatural.com
- Thank you Krys, Dawn, and team!
3. Hemp supplier in Los Angeles, CA using materials imported from China: https://www.hemptraders.com/ (Note that hemp, while arguably more sustainable for making fabrics, is still not legal to grow in the U.S., so this company "works directly with farmers, factories, and manufacturers [in China] to ensure we are providing the most natural hemp products with the most minimal impact on the planet.")
4. Woman-owned sewing workshop in Chula Vista, CA: http://www.royalewearmfg.com/
