NO STOCK . NO SLAVE LABOR. NO MASS PRODUCTION. ETHICALLY MADE. ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY
FOR OVER 5 YEARS, FRENCHIE YORK HAS BEEN FOCUSING ON THE CONCEPT OF "MADE TO ORDER"
we are against everything that defines fast fashion/mass produced clothing.
we believe consumers are tired of clothing being produced unethically, having their GARMENTS
fall apart after a handful of washes and being made with cheap material
NO INVENTORY = NO EXCESS STOCK TO THROW IN LANDFILLS AFTER EVERY SEASON
NO MASS PRODUCTION = ELIMINATES THE USE OF SLAVE LABOR FACTORIES
EACH PIECE MADE TO ORDER = GIVES THE OPTION OF STANDARD OR CUSTOM SIZING
MADE TO LAST = NOT USING FAST FASHION MEANS QUALITY FABRICS ARE ALWAYS USED
AFFORDABLE = KEEPING THINGS REAL
MAKING A CHANGE
SOME OF THE BIGGEST ISSUES IN THE FASHION INDUSTRY ARE SLAVE/child LABOR factories AND EXCESS STOCK.
OUR CONCEPT OF MAKING EVERY PIECE TO ORDER CAN HELP ELIMINATE THESE PROBLEMS.
the average American throws away over 68 pounds of textiles per year into landfill because
consumers purchase clothing accepting the idea it will fall apart in a short time frame.
Industry estimates suggest that 20 to 60 percent of garment production is sewn at home by
informal workers which include children.
the concept was created
in 2012, founder and head designer of frenchie york, sera caruana moved to bali, indonesia
to find a way to begin a clothing line without using the typical unethical mass produced
technique the fashion industry was ACCUSTOMED to.
with merging her designing skills with talented SEAMSTRESSES frenchie york was first started in a small
home factory and now expands to three factories over south east asia and making clothing
for customers worldwide we pride in ethical work conditions hiring crew that work their own hours,
can take their children to work and are paid above award wages.
frenchie york's first showroom was launched in 2013 in ubud.
a showroom is planned to be opened in new york and los angeles in june 2018
