Private Label Production

February 02, 2012

We have had a vey busy and success 2011 and hope to continue in this direction throughout 2012. Just an update on the specifics: we began adding more openings to our private label production in early 2011 and have received both a welcome and overwhelming response. We are trying to grow, albeit in a careful and pragmatic way, to accommodate the requests for new private labels as well as being able to balance production of our own Mehera Shaw label. In economically trying times, we are thankful to have more business. We are also happy to note how many young designers are choosing to work in a sustainable way--supporting fair trade and sustainable fabrics.

In 2012 we are planning to add an upper floor to our existing facility to accommodate our quality control area and fabric orders better. We hope to see this project completed in late May (certainly hope it will be completed before the start of the summer monsoon rains!!). We are working to develop the skill level of some of our younger tailors and hope to be able to offer more opening in our production schedule for new private label designers. Please contact Shari Keller at info(at)meherashaw.com if you are interested in more information in private label production. I will send you our Designer Guidelines packet which describes our facility and options for working with us in more detail.

Fit/Sizing/Care

Fit

Our styles are meant to give room to breath and move.  We use fine tailoring coupled with a relaxed, comfortable fit.

We use a fit guide for each of our styles to provide more information about the fit that was intended.

Slim Fit: a close fit to the body. Regular Fit: a comfortable, relaxed fit with room around the body. Generous Fit: a very loose fit (such as in our oversized blouses) with lots of room around the body for ease of movement.

Wash Care

We recommend cold water machine wash with a bio detergent and either tumble dry on low heat or line dry in shade for all of our 100% cotton garments.  Cold water wash and low heat drying or line drying in the shade will increase the life of the garment, prolong the vibrancy of the colors and reduce energy use. Shrinkage on all cottons is minimal, approximately 3%.

 

For our silk and cotton silk garments, we also recommend gentle cycle machine wash cold water or delicate hand washing to increase the life of the garment and reduce the environmental footprint from energy use, detergents and water wastage.

 

All garments have been washed several times during the printing/dyeing and manufacturing process.
