We’ve switched up how we sew and have tailored our website. Our deadstock garments are made on demand in Alabama. We've extended our sizing to offer options from XXS-3XL. We now accept Afterpay. We still make the same silhouettes you know and love, and now they're available in extended sizes and exclusive colorways that are made-to-order.
Reducing the over-production of finished goods cuts back on wasting fabric and unsold inventory. Manufacturing to order is even more important to us because the deadstock fabric we source is limited.
Another reason we make garments to order is that we can make a run of a certain colorway go further by producing it on-demand. For example, last year before we implemented the made-to-order model we had a couple of XS Amber jumpsuits leftover and kept getting messages from customers wanting to purchase it in a size M. Because we had already cut and sewn the XS jumpsuits and had run out of fabric, we were unable to accommodate other orders. Producing on-demand helps us to fulfill your orders. It's a more costly process for us, but also the most efficient and resourceful way of using our limited fabric.
Made on-demand. Made for you. Made with intention. Made to feel right.
From ethical production to sustainable fabrics, we're committed to minimizing our environmental impact. Our non-negotiables include domestic manufacturing, fair wages, smart fabrics, on-demand production, and recycled or reusable packaging for our goods. This is how Fauxgerty is made to feel right.
Tomorrow: Recycled & Reusable Packaging
