One thing was clear with the Aurora collection. It was going to be manufactured locally and by women. It was going to be tough but Etsy manufacturing was a godsend, helping us create a shortlist of small batch manufacturers in the US. Detroit Sewn's track record and ability to work with small-batch designers made them a perfect fit. The are perfectly equipped to deal with all the fears and freak outs of a nascent designer. Shout out to Marcy and Leanne in particular for keeping us sane during the development process and super happy with the end product!
