Fully Fashioned Pieces

"Fully fashioned" refers to a method of garment construction where each piece is individually shaped and knit to its final form. This technique contrasts with cut-and-sew methods where fabric is cut from larger pieces and then sewn together. This means there is minimal waste during our production.
