The hands that make our clothes

I really should have posted this sooner when it was all fresh but things move so quickly, especially in this industry…

These are images from the factory in Buffalo that I worked over the winter to sew our first season.

The seamstresses you see here are amazingly talented and beautiful Burmese women who taught me so much more than I could ever thank them for.

Their laughter and positivity taught me how to maintain grace in the midst of a stressful time and their attention to detail, patience and hard work has made me a better seamstress, a better small business owner and a better person.

Mo, Thin, Wyne, Sandre & Leit

ေက်းဇူးတန္ပါတယ္။

(thank you)
