"...the fashion’s industry’s practice of churning out increasingly large volumes of cheap, disposable clothing is an “environmental and social emergency.”

Founded in 2016 & run by Belinda Jacobs
“ I started this company after working in the industry for several years. I experienced first hand how hard the communication process was between a designer’s vision and getting a final-real life product in hand. Even for very established designers, miscommunications, mis-made samples, and production errors were the norm. I wanted to help designers and entrepreneurs bring their vision to life with less trial/error and more results. Not to mention the environmental and social impacts we can have if we start developing better quality clothing with less waste. ”
Belinda has an honors degree from the UK in Clothing Design & Technology and has worked for various independent designers, start-ups, wholesale suppliers and blue chip retailers.
