Sustainable Supply Chain

Transparency is key to understanding what you are supporting when you make a purchase of anything. Here is a breakdown of how Botanical Clothing is made:

  • I first work with a local pattern maker to help me bring my designs to life. You can read about the pattern making process here.
  • Hemp fabric is from my supplier in Colorado (to read the full transparency page about my fabrics, you can read that here).
  • Fabric is shipped to my Oregon studio from Colorado. 
  • Fabric is cut and sewn into organic clothing in my studio.
  • I work with a GOTS certified dye-house in Los Angeles to have garments dyed. (read about what that means here). 
  • Dyed garments are mailed back to my studio.
  • Garments are then inspected, ironed, folded, and packaged, ready to be shipped out into the world!
Remnant pieces of fabric left over from cutting out patterns are saved and used in other smaller pattern pieces until they are too small to be used. They are then donated to a local quilter or crafter, and in the final stages at their smallest point, donated to a fabric recycling company to be shredded and turned into padding and other fillers. 

I use recycled and recyclable mailers from Eco Enclose to ship your order.
I use USPS to ship 99% of my orders (you can read about how shipping with USPS is a sustainable way to ship here).
I order my labels from Cruz Label in Los Angeles.
I order my elastics from Kagan Trim in Los Angeles.

I'm working towards creating the most sustainable handmade clothing I can. If you have any questions (or suggestions! I'm always open to hear about ways I can improve) please get in touch, let's chat.
