Our Ethical Approach to Sustainable Print on Demand
Each product we create is a testament to the meticulous, heartfelt effort of the skilled hands that make them. It's not just about where our products are made, but about the people who make them and how.
Embracing Slow Fashion: Our Pledge
At the core of Kin Custom is our unwavering commitment to slow fashion. We eliminate order minimums and embrace a made-to-order model, focusing on the quality of our products, not the quantity. This approach not only upholds our ethical values but also significantly reduces environmental risks. Zero inventory means no excess stock, no mass production, and consequently, no unnecessary environmental burden.
A Journey of Handmade Excellence
Step 1. Print
First, the design you choose is printed onto the fabric. This step is all about precision and ensuring the print aligns perfectly with the design specifications.
Step 2. Cut
Next, the printed fabric is cut into the specific pieces that will make up your product. This is done by hand, allowing for careful attention to the details of the fabric's pattern and alignment.
Step 3. Hand Sewn
Finally, the cut pieces are hand-sewn together to create the final product. This step is crucial, as it's where the product takes its final shape contributing to a high-quality, unique item.
