Below is a list of the companies and people we work with. We are making this available because we believe in transparency, and want to support other emerging designers who share our values.
When Sailaal started, one of the biggest challenges was finding suppliers that met our standards. We either had to spend hours researching, pay exuberant consulting fees to get referrals, or cut corners. We chose the first option.
We’re making our resources accessible to fellow designers to encourage more sustainable, health-oriented choices in their design process. Our goal is to contribute to a more mindful fashion industry—because we’re all in this together.
