TRANSPARENT PRICING SYSTEM

A few notes on our transparent pricing system:

  • Our retail price will be rounded to the nearest 50c. 
  • As we have different types of fabrics used for one style we calculated an average cost per metre.
  • Our merino, cotton knit, and vintage wool fabrics were made right here in New Zealand. We pay a higher price for our salvaged/deadstock fabrics than we would importing new fabrics from overseas. But we believe the benefits to the environment, our local economy, and the higher quality fabric is worth it.
  • We have a short supply chain, as everything gets done by us in our studio. From design, some pattern drafting, cutting and construction, to orders being packaged and posted.
  • We take extra time and care adding bespoke elements like hand stitched labels, reinforced seams, hand tied threads, and box stitched joins, to name a few.
  • We charge our time at a modest $25 per hour.
  • Overhead costs include rent, power, insurance, accountant fees, website maintenance, packaging & handling, and depreciation.
  • You will see our retail prices are below what our final total is. This is an issue a lot of small business in the industry struggle with. Wanting to be competitive, but also wanting to get paid what we are worth is a balancing act. As we are very new to this, it's going to be a bit of trial and error for us.
  • But we made the decision to be radically transparent and lay everything open here for you to see, as vulnerable as it makes us feel!
