Here at Blessed Designs we love the idea of shopping small. In this spirit, we have chosen Nature's Fabric as our fabric supplier. Nature's Fabric is a small family owned distributor of natural fabrics. Many of their fabrics are Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certified, and they come highly recommended by the Ethical Fashion Forum. We also love the transparency on their website, which is something we think every business should strive for.
Open Arms is one group of incredible ladies that we are super excited to be working with. They are a sustainable apparel and sewn goods manufacturer empowering refugee women through fair-wage employment. It's exciting to be partnering with this amazing organization based in Austin, Texas.
And we continue in Austin, TX where our shirts are screen-printed. Under Pressure Screen-printing is the only screen-printer in Austin that is 100% eco-friendly. Knowing we were working with a mix a fabrics not widely used in shirts we needed to work with experts. Water based inks are not easy to work with and knowing what you're doing is essential to quality work. We're grateful that they were willing to take on this project with us.
