Naturally Dyed Flare Wave Skirt Sew Pomona

Sustainable Sewing & Natural Dyes

Sustainability is a core value of Sew Pomona, and I believe that we can all make a difference by creating our own clothes and reducing our impact on the environment. By using high-quality materials and taking care of our garments, we can minimize waste and support a more ethical and sustainable fashion industry. 

I want to know as much as I can about where everything I make comes form and to take care in all aspects of my creative process.
I’m not perfect by any means but I try to source sustainably, create with care and make it last.

I want to know who’s making my fabric and that they all are treated well and compensated fairly for the goods I’m buying. 
I want to leave the earth better for my children and their children.

“Care for your clothes like the good friends they are”

Joan Crawford

Over the years, I’ve honed my skills and developed my own style. I love experimenting with different fabrics, patterns, and techniques to create unique garments that reflect my personality and values. I’m also passionate about natural dyeing and use eco-friendly methods to inspire color in my handmade garments.

Eco-Friendly Sewing Tips:

  • Reuse and recycle old clothing and textiles
  • Mend and repair
  • Use organic and sustainable fabrics and notions whenever possible
  • Keep it local
  • Look for Fair trade and ethical production
  • Avoid chemical dyes, instead use plant based, low impact and non toxic dyes
