Maintain a better future with custom tailored garments.
Did you know that 30% of the garments in the stores are overproduced already from the start? That means that they are bound to end up on garbage dump or getting burned. What a waste! Because of that we are producing the garments after ordering only, we never over produce. That means no spill or throwing away piles of garments. Above all our garments don´t end up in outlets or sales to make place for next seasons production.
As a customer you are involved in the design process and can create something which is 100% your style and fits you in a perfect way. As a result this adds an irreplaceable value to the garment and we believe that it will guarantee a longer lifetime.
There are no shortcuts in creating long lasting quality. Therefor we don’t cut corners to shave a few cents off the manufacturing costs. Instead we work with production units who not only can deliver quality, but also can guarantee a sustainable environment for their workers.

The garment atelier
All our garments are crafted by hand, piece for piece, by skilled tailors in our atelier in Lithuania. Owner Loreta has a loyal team of 6 tailors and seamstresses, who have been working there for many years. Moreover they earn a decent salary and have good working conditions.
The scarf factory
Our scarves are made in a silk factory in China. Most importantly they print all scarves with digital techniques. Digital printing is a more sustainable way of printing, certainly using less water than traditionally printing techniques.
After printing the scarves are finished sewing by hand or machine, depending on the type of scarf.
The videos show you how to take your body measurements correctly. The video guide is language accompanied and we recommend turning on the volume.
Let´s start taking your measurements. You need a measurement tape and 5 minutes of your time. Put yourself in front of a mirror, this can help. Wear tight clothes or only underwear for the best result.
To measure your chest, position and pull the tape measure around your body where your chest is as broadest (under your armpits, around your back and back to the front) to get the right measure.
Fold the measurement tape around your natural waist, where it is as smallest, a few cm above your belly bottom. Keep it parallel to the floor. Avoid holding your breath or pulling your stomach.
