On 24 April 2013, 1,134 people were killed and over 2,500 were injured when the Rana Plaza apparel manufacturing complex collapsed in Dhaka, Bangladesh. We believe that’s too many people to lose on one day.
What does handmade mean to us? Here at Squasht, it means that we hand-make each piece of our clothing and hat collection from start to finish right here in Chicago. We begin with sketching and careful design, then we do our own pattern-making, we hand select all of the fabrics, we cut and sew the garments, and many more steps in between! We believe in paying a fair wage for our garment manufacturing, and we work closely with just a few seamstresses, the same ones who we have been working with for over ten years! Check out some of our handmade items like our reversible handmade hats and dresses, and you will be able to see the quality and love that goes into our products!
We are Fashion Revolution
We believe that fashion can be made in a safe,
clean and beautiful way. Where creativity, quality,
environment and people are valued equally.
On 18-24 April, Fashion Revolution Week will bring people from all over the world together to use the power of fashion to change the story for the people who make the world’s clothes and accessories.
