What does fair trade mean?
Fair trade is a term that refers to products where fair prices are paid to producers in developing countries. Fair trade is a core value of Liz Alig. Not only do we insure that our seamstreses have fair and ethical work conditions and wages, we also give back 10% of our profits to further the development and skills training of women in their communities. All of Liz Alig products are produced by partnering with organizations who empower small women-owned seamstress business, teach job skills to low income communities, and encourage economic growth in developing countries.
What does recycled fabric mean?
Many of Liz Alig products are made from recycled fabrics meaning we use textiles that have a previous life as a garment or remnant fabric from factories. Using recycled fabric allows us to help prevent wasted textiles by giving them new life.
Where do you get your recycled fabrics?
Liz Alig sources recycled fabrics from a variety of sources including second hand clothing stores, remnants and dead stock fabric from factories. While working with fair trade producers around the globe, we also source second hand clothing that has been shipped to the countries where these organizations work. By doing this we can lessen the amount of travel that the textiles take before turning into a new garment.
What other types of fabrics do you use?
Liz Alig also partners with producers that use organic cotton fabrics, as well as, hand woven yarns.
What should I know about buying garments made from recycled fabrics?
Many styles by Liz Alig are made from recycled t-shirt fabrics which are upcycled into a specific silhouette. Because these products are constructed from a variety of t-shirts that are pieced into the new silhouette, shades may vary slightly from garment to garment. The samples shown show the overall color schemes that are used for each season, but each garment shades will differ slightly.
What should I know about buying Liz Alig one of a kind selections?
Some of our items are one of a kind items, meaning that each garment is created using unique fabrics to compose the same siloutee. If you have specific requests for color choices or styles, please indicate that to us upon ordering.
What if I do not like the exact colors or prints that are selected from the silhouette chosen?
You may return the product within 30 days of purchase with proof of purchase. If you would like to specify different colors please let us know and we will ship you another product in different textiles. There will be a second shipping charge added if you wish to have another product shipped, but no restocking fee is charged.
