Risks and challenges

We’re the new kid on the block.

Our biggest challenge will be with brand awareness and the cost of our product.

With a drive to create products in the USA from sustainable materials + the intricate details and designs of the collection, we face a steep challenge from fast fashion foo-fas who roam to kill with low price, deep discounts and cut throat intricacy.

Our goal is to keep things local so we can be present in the entire process. It is really important to us to know how, whom and where our products are made, and we want to educate + empower you to do the same so together we can create a better future for ourselves and our planet.

Along with the nitty-gritty challenges of being the newbie comes the unpredictable nature of nature. We are prepared for floods, monsoon season, ceremonies, planes, flat tires, bad days, and so on by adding a little padding to our delivery dates in case of unexpected delays. If anything comes up, you will be the first to know!

Everything we do is by hand. The fabric is hand woven in India, hand dyed in the Pennsylvania, hand printed in the NY, and hand cut + sewn in the US by local factories in NY. Due to the nature of doing everything by hand, we face a challenge of some delays due to cramping, exhaustion, and carpel tunnel. But seriously, we will keep you posted and we have allotted enough time for the different steps in our supply chain.

In order to get rolling, we need people like you who believe in our story and brand to support us by ordering our products and sharing our story with the world.

Let’s do this!
