When deciding how to source our fabrics, we were confronted with a shocking fact: the fashion industry is the second largest polluter in the world responsible for 20% of the world’s industrial water pollution. We were determined not to be a part of the problem, but how? By using deadstock fabrics.
Deadstock fabrics are the left over fabrics of other fashion houses who overestimated their needs. Traditionally, brands would hold on to their excess fabrics for a few seasons and then send them to the landfills. We rescue these deadstock fabrics before they are thrown away and we turn them into our amazing TFD shirts.
Because we use deadstock, we rarely find large quantities of any one fabric. Small rolls mean small production runs. We make only 10 to 20 shirts in a specific fabric or print.
It’s the perfect win/win. We get great fabrics without polluting the planet, the landfills aren’t quite as packed, and you get a one of a kind TFD’s shirt that was handmade in Bali.
