How It Was Made
- 1 Yarn Sourcing
- 2 Knitting
- 3 Finishing
- 4 Washing
- 5 Pressing
- 6 Quality Control
From yarn sourcing to final production, our approach to manufacturing is environmentally friendly from end to end. We source the highest-quality yarns from suppliers that are typically family owned and provide fiber traceability.
Every garment is knit in our Brooklyn factory using innovative 3D knitting machines that create less than 1% excess material and come out the machine as one complete piece. No sewing or linking required!
After knitting, our finishing team inspects every piece by hand, ties in the ends of your garment and prepares it for wash.
Laundering your garment is a critical part of our post-production processes. Our washing and drying machines are programmed with detailed recipes specific to each yarn fiber content. This process ensure a precise fit and optimal hand feel.
Next, garments move to our pressing department. The hot steam allows our pressing team to remove wrinkles and set the garments measurement. Then, the vacuum inside the table is applied to permanently set the specs of your garment and prepare for packing.
Each garment is inspected by hand for defects and damages, allowing us to ensure that we only ship the highest quality pieces.
