What makes your items "sustainable" or "ethical"? All fabrics are locally sourced from jobbers in the San Francisco Bay Area. A jobber generally buys overstock fabrics and materials from larger manufacturers at a discounted price in order to avoid adding textile waste to landfills. By purchasing from local jobbers, we're supporting local businesses, helping divert unused materials and one of a from sitting in landfills and creating, and offsetting Co2 emissions by walking or talking public transit to pick up and source materials. Additionally, all trims, hardware, and chains are recyclable.
We practice ethical manufacturing by creating small batch items by hand and creating as little waste as possible. Whether that's saving and up cycling scraps or carefully ensuring we're never buying an overstock of materials, we're always ensuring mindful practices in the production of your items. Lastly, we work with a handful of overseas suppliers that are all certified in ethical manufacturing.
"I love your brand & I'd love to collab! I have XK followers on instagram, can you send me some free stuff for a content swap??!" This is a tough one for us! We do love a good content swap but we have had some issues with "influencers" not holding up their end of the bargain in the past. Generally, we'll reach out to you if we want to work with you and will approve different requests on a case by case basis. Overall, Gr8dane World is a small operation and if you really loved/supported our brand, you'd be more than willing to put your dollar forward and keep this biz in action. We know, prices can be tricky sometimes but that's why we have options like Afterpay!
