Fabric and sewing Disclaimers:
Our garments are made from reclaimed materials. Either fabric scraps resulting from the industrial cutting process at the clothing factories or unwanted irretrievable clothing items from friends and neighbors and other waisted fabrics are sewn together in apparent and sometimes irregular stitches. These imperfections are part of our story and are not to be considered damages. Each of our items has variations and can not be reproduced identically with respect to the type of fabrics and their exact arrangement nor to the seams irregularities. We strive for authenticity and we consider that a 'fair' garment is a beautiful one solely by its character.
Most of our items are one size. For the ones that have a tight fit we have adopted the following size guide:
SIZE XXS XS S M L XL
bust 80 84 88 92 96 100
waist 60 64 68 72 76 80
hip 86 90 94 98 102 106
