We are looking for an experienced garment cutter and seamstress/seamster with a calm disposition who has a high attention to detail. You will be cutting and sewing garments using electric rotary sheers and industrial sergers based on customers unique selections.
– An understanding of garment construction and pattern drafting is a must. Each garment you cut out will change based on customer request so a working knowledge of garment construction is required.
– You must have experience working with an industrial serger and sewing knit fabrics. We can not teach you how to sew and require someone with at least 5-10 years of professional sewing experience.
– Our bolts of fabric can weight up to 60 pounds so being able to lift and move around this amount of weight and stand on your feet for around 5 hrs a day is a physical requirement to accomplish the goals of your role as cutter successfully.
– Due to the bespoke nature of what we do it takes a long time to fully assimilate all the knowledge needed for your position. For this reason we are looking for someone who wants to stay with us for a long time. This position is best for those who are looking for at least 5 years of employment.
Who are We:
Gaia Conceptions is a small fashion house that creates organic made to order garment based on customers custom choices. This means what you will be cutting and sewing and the number of garments will be different every week. We work in an open studio environment where each artisan relies on others and they rely on you so strong communication skills and dependability is a must. The studio is a calm and peaceful environment with natural light and windows open whenever temperatures allow. It’s a laidback place where we all work hard everyday and enjoy the satisfaction that comes from working as a team.
We are always accepting applications. If we are currently hiring you will hear back from us shortly, otherwise, we will keep your information on file for future position openings.
Content Creator and Seamstress Position
We are looking for a very unique person to join our team at Gaia Conceptions. We need someone who feels just as comfortable in front of the camera modeling and talking about sustainable fashion on Instagram as she does sewing the garments together in the studio. Each day at the Gaia studio will be a little different so multitasking skills and attention to detail is essential.
One day you might be creating content for our newsletter, another day you might be cutting and sewing garments together for production, or even assisting me with video creation and editing images for the website.
Your first few months will be spent gaining a working knowledge of how we create and then moving into the roll of sharing our story through social media. The majority of your time will be spent creating content for social media and helping with production with a sprinkling of assisting with new projects.
