Before working on the silk fabric, we wash it with some mild hair shampoo. This operation aims to avoid common fading and shrinking phenomenon due to the first wash process. But the aim is also to be sure of the good reaction of the fabric during the water treatments.
If ever a fabric do not well react during that first operation, we do not use it.
While the silk fabric is still slightly wet, it is ironed so as it is brilliant with perfect sheens.
For any made-to-measure order of clothes, a pattern is realized. These patterns are carefully kept as well as the customers’ measurements in case the customer would like to order again the same item. It happens that some measurements seem wrong to us when receiving them. But we generally manage to rectify them by ourselves according to the other given information. Not being sure of it, we get back in touch with the customer.
The cutting-out Process:
The cutting-out process is entirely realized with sewing scissors by Nghi who is a real artist in this field.
The Sewing Process:
The seams are entirely realized with a traditional electric sewing machine and with an oversewing machine when necessary. Each thread step is as precisely as possible adjusted. This ensures the best hard-wearing quality to the customer. The work on delicate silk is reputed to be difficult and it calls for high technique requirements.
After having been checked all along during the manufacturing process, the clothes are ironed, folded up and carefully packed up. In the very near future, we will put with the piece of clothing a small booklet explaining in details the origins and the story of the products. The consumer will then be able to know who the purchase was benefit to.
Fair Fashion sends its products over the world by airplane, which gets the advantage of being fast. The piece of clothing is however 2 to 3 Euros (3 to 4.5 USD) more expensive. This cost would obviously be lowered to 0,04 Euros (0.06 USD) if the distribution was made only to one country and by boat, with larger quantities. This is however not what is predicted for now, considering the variety of the export countries and so, of the insignificant monthly exported volume to each of them.
