1. The designers design and create the patterns of the different pieces that will be in the collection.
2. Fabrics are then ordered. We evaluate the number of rolls we need to produce the collection. We source our fabrics from Canada, Europe and Asia.
3. Once the fabrics are received, some of them must be pre-washed or pre-shrunk, to avoid this happening to you. We use two Montreal-based companies to do this.
4. We then move on to grading. On a large sheet of several meters, one of our subcontractors in Montreal uses a technique that allows us to obtain, from our base size (S), the other sizes we need (this is done by a large number of calculations and tables a little complex ... ;-). The large sheet is thus printed by means of tracings.
5. After this step, the fabrics are sent for cutting. Several meters of fabric are laid out on a large table, with the gradation sheet on top so that the laser cutter can follow the tracings. Once the fabrics are cut, all the little pieces that build a garment are joined together to continue the next steps.
6. In some of our collections, you can find screen printed fabrics. For this, our subcontractor uses water-based inks, without PVC or phthalates and other heavy metals, which gives a much nicer printing result, less relief and especially more environmentally friendly.
7. This step concerns the sewing of our clothes. For this, we offer full confidence to many independent seamstresses and dressmakers, all located in Montreal.
8. Once the garments are sewn, we receive them for quality control directly in our workshop. The whole team works in turn, garment by garment, to be sure to offer you the best possible product.
9. When all the design steps are completed, the finished garment is in your hands and matches perfectly with the rest of your wardrobe!
