Message From the Maker

My name is Sitrarasan. I am 37 years old and have been working in the factory for 8 years. I have found my specialty in flat seam tailoring which provides me with good, satisfying work. I work on a variety of products from make-up pads to hair ties. I live nearby the factory with my family. The materials used for your brand is totally different from other fast fashion brands we manufacture for. Especially the sewing yarn where we mostly use polyester yarn, when the management told me to use cotton sewing yarn I can remember the old days when I migrated to the city 14 years ago, where only cotton sewing yarn was used and slowly polyester yarn dominated the market due to its cheaper price, It’s good the old nature-friendly cotton yarn is coming back.
