In order to keep our production just as sustainable as our materials we use a made to order production model. We began as a made-to-order company and have kept that model as we’ve grown. It reduces waste (we don’t overproduce inventory or cut into materials that aren’t needed), this allows us to offer a wide variety of styles, sizes, and customization that other inventory-based companies can’t afford to offer. Because we don’t cut into fabric and produce a garment until it’s ordered, we’re able to be much more flexible with our collection and we’re not in the guessing game of predicting demand. There is also the sustainability of not expending precious material and human energy until another human has said they want and will use the object, and we don’t ever want to lose that dedication to Gaia.

We place all the orders we receive in a given week into a production plan. Then over the next 2 weeks we make all of the garments in that production plan – they move through the studio getting cut, sewn, dyed, inspected, and packed up and shipped out as a group. At any given moment, our team will be working on two or three production plans – one batch is in cutting, one in sewing, one in dyeing and fulfillment then getting ready for pickup. Each production plan is totally unique, containing only the garments you all have ordered.

This entire process takes us 3-4 weeks

Step 1

We Cut

Each garment is custom cut by hand based on

your design, organic fabric, and size choice.

 

Step 2

We Sew

We serge and straight stitch all our garments together for super strong and durable seams.

Lots of Love and attention to detail goes into this stage of your One of a Kind Gaia Garment !!!

 

 Step 3

We Dye

Each garment is hand dyed either with our Natural Plant Dyes or eco friendly Low Impact Dyes depending on your color choice.

Because all pieces are hand cut, sewn, and dyed please expect variations in each garment. These subtle differences should be celebrated as the mark of a hand made piece created especially for you!

It usually takes us 3-4 weeks from time of purchase to create your unique Gaia Conceptions Creation.  We are not able to rush orders, thank you for understanding.
