    Chicago, United States

      

    Many Princess Awesome clothes are cut and sewn in a fantastic shop in Chicago, Illinois, USA. It has been in business for over 30 years and is run by a mother-daughter team. They are amazing partners and are instrumental in the development of our dresses.

         

    We have been to visit numerous times, and each time we are impressed with the facility, the employees, and the care and attention they put into every piece they sew.

        

    Most of the factory’s employees are women, and, to accommodate their needs, the shop opens early and closes at 3pm each day so the seamstresses can pick up their kids from school.

    Rebecca grew up outside of Chicago, and her parents live there now. In a stroke of serendipity, our amazing factory is just 2.5 miles away from where Rebecca’s parents live. Not only does this make it easier to visit the factory - every trip home is a trip to see Selvana (pictured left), head of the shop! - but it has also enabled Rebecca’s dad to make quick trips to pick up finished dresses or drop off new patterns when necessary.

    Cowgirl in the Sand is owned and operated by Elise Braden as a booth within a larger artists collective. She especially loves working with old pieces of silver and silver plate flatware. Pieces are cleaned organically and then repurposed into hand-stamped serving pieces, unique pieces of jewelry, bookmarks, and other gifts and accessories. Along with the vintage flatware, she also works with beach glass, coins, sterling silver, copper, paper and wood. And words, words, words. They make us laugh and cry, reflect memories of the past and hopes for the future.

     San Antonio, USA

    Le Chic Miami was started and is run by Lydia McConnell, a Seattle native with degrees in both Interior Architecture and User Experience Design. After moving to Miami in 2017, Lydia started designing, laser cutting and hand-painting earrings for herself at a local makerspace. After receiving so many compliments on her earrings Lydia decided to try and sell them at a local weekend market. By the end of the day in she was completely sold out of everything. Lydia continued to participate in weekend markets through 2019 then shifted Le Chic's focus to online sales and wholesale. In 2021, Le Chic Miami expanded their home studio and relocated to San Antonio. Lydia is now joined by three other aspiring designers and artists to bring Le Chic Miami's designs to life. We hope our products make you smile and brighten your day.

    Lahore, Pakistan

    One of the biggest challenges a small brand like ours faces is finding a manufacturing partner who is willing to produce in small quantities.  We met in person with the team from Unique Apparels in 2018 and 2020, and have worked with them to develop small runs of niche products, like our shorts and our joggers. You can see the fabric being produced at the end of the video here:
