When I moved here a couple of years ago, I still had much design and prototyping work remaining. I'm an internationalist so I tried a factory in Guatemala but spending $400 on shipping 5 lbs. of fabric made me sick. The waste of money, carbon, and time did not make business sense (or common sense, for that matter). It also hindered me from learning everything I needed to about how this industry works. With that in mind, I knew I needed to connect with someone local to show me the ropes.
That’s when I found the Denver Design Incubator (DDI). Through that organization, I met the brilliant designer/patternmaker, Keti, who introduced me to Rae, who now sews Everyday Sabbatical samples, dresses, and tops. I would not have made it this far without them - and they are the reason the clothes fit and look so amazing.
