We believe it is crucial that all our employees, and the entire production process to which they contribute daily, are in safe hands. That’s why – together with a local partner – we have our own atelier in Vietnam, which specializes in producing tailor-made shirts and blouses. The ShirtbyHand production house employs 75 members of staff, all working under fair conditions. They ensure a secure and pleasant working environment, a maximum of 45 working hours per week, a spacious environment with modern equipment, and and a salary that is 20 percent higher than the local standard. Our factory is BSCI certified.
They produce unique shirts for ShirtbyHand and the blouses for Arber Studio. Therefore, it is possible to work with very small numbers, so we can keep our stock small and have very low waste.
Our knitwear is produced in a textile factory located in Braga, Portugal. They are registered in the BSCI, which means that they work with sustainable and fair wear productions. Their merino wool has a mulesing free certificate.
Ever since 1880, they have been manufacturing the most beautiful knitwear products. Their 1000+ employees are specialized in the production of knit garments, using a Fully Fashion technique, all in very fine gauges.
All products are produced in their own facilities. The factory is also equipped with its own fully robotized dyeing laboratory, fully integrated in the production cycle. The product joins together the Fully Fashion technique and Hand Linking with high quality yarns that allow us to achieve the quality demands.
The factory pays utmost attention when selecting the yarn, and they have been working with the best Italian yarn manufacturers.
The production facilities of our T-shirts are located in Istanbul, Turkey. In the family business established in 1957 all production processes take place in-house, being specialized in sampling, cutting, sewing, quality control and finishing. They are always open to innovation, giving high importance to new techniques and methods regarding dyeing, printing or application processes.
