From the heart of Garment District to outer Boroughs


When it comes to making handbags, it is often overlooked just how handmade every part of the process is

Small Batch Production

Only feasible when producing locally instead of overseas, so that we keep environmental impact to the minimum by avoid overproducing

What makes New York New York

"there I was, picking up some hardware on 37th. A girl came in and picked up the same d-ring for Oscar de la Renta. That's the Garment District of New York City."

It's just a few blocks of buildings in the middle of Manhattan. Many businesses have also moved to outer boroughs. But its impact, and how it's still deeply integrated to the products you see in stores, is often overlooked. A button store there probably works with the biggest fashion names on a daily basis while still open 9 to 5 to anyone who just wants to fix a button on a shirt.
