S L O W F A S H I O N ? The opposite of FAST FASHION.
Made with intention, with thoughtful fibres and materials; made ethically without the use of sweat shops or slave labour; and made to last.
These labels are specifically designed to be used on the outside of your clothing. You can think of these labels as a conversation starter: hopefully they will spark interactions for you with people who haven't heard of this concept.
It didn't feel authentic to use a computer font for this label: because it is so special, it needed to be unique and organic. Helen from Brisbane Handlettering used a custom hand script for the text design. She also runs brush hand-lettering workshops in the Brisbane area; check out her page: https://brisbanehandlettering.com.au/
These labels have been designed so that you can use them in several ways.
Not only can you follow a traditional path and sew them into the inside back of a shirt, they are double-sided so you can use them as a side seam label, popping out from the seam of a t-shirt, skirt, shorts or pants.
The label could be placed behind a pocket in a button-down shirt or pair of jeans, or even sewn onto a hem. In fact, any visible seam in a garment could have a Slow Fashion label appear!
Each pack contains 8 woven labels.
Specific details about this label:
- 3cm x 1.5cm plus 1/4" (5mm) seam allowance.
- Centre-folded, this label is ideally sewn onto the garment (either inside or displayed visibly) by inserting into a seam allowance or facing.
- Two-tone light blue.
Labels by KATM are super high-quality woven labels. They are classified as HD which is similar to a thread count found in sheets: finer and more threads which give the crispest designs. They are Oeko-Tex certified, washable, durable and non-scratchy!
It was a no-brainer to switch to plastic-free packaging; KATM's individual packs are now made entirely from RECYCLED CARDBOARD and are fully biodegradable.
