SHE’S MY SNOWFLAKE TOP

WHAT'S IT MADE FROM?

The first fabrication in the SHE’S MY SNOWFLAKE TOP is the sky blue satin, which is 100% silk sourced from Wall Fabrics, in Morningside Auckland. Wall Fabrics have sourced this fabric from China and have sea freighted it to New Zealand (lower carbon emissions - yay!) 

This is a deadstock fabric, meaning it is either end-of-line, excess from a large scale designer, a mill overrun or a cancelled order. By using deadstock, we are able to use up already existing fabrics where they would otherwise have ended up in landfill, we are supporting New Zealand local businesses and we have an up-close and personal relationship with our suppliers and fabrications. This sky blue silk satin was a dream to source - we are lucky to have gotten our hands on it! 

Wall Fabrics are a well known Australian originated company who have worked with New Zealand designers for over thirty years. They focus on natural fibre selection and carry mostly deadstocks and end of lines to sell on. Learn more:

The second is our Black Satin fabric 100% silk, sourced from Fabric Merchants in Kingsland, Auckland. Fabric Merchants sourced this fabric from the Como Region in Italy using sea freight to New Zealand (lower carbon emissions - also yay!) This too is a deadstock fabric, meaning it is either end-of-line, excess from a large scale designer, a mill overrun or a cancelled order. By using deadstock, we are able to use up already existing fabrics where they would otherwise have ended up in landfill, we are supporting New Zealand local businesses and we have an up-close and personal relationship with our suppliers and fabrications. These incredible silks are top of the line Italian silks which we don’t often have the opportunity to source here in New Zealand. Thanks to Richard, Jess and the team at Fabric Merchants for bringing these incredible fabrics to the table and for putting up with our long drawn out design process!!!

WHO MADE IT?

Because we are made to order and runs are so small we use multiple machinists across the same styles to ensure we get our orders within the time frames we (you) need. Therefore your piece may have been made by either;
