Waiting for your clothing to be sewn? 3 reasons why!

June 28 2023

Three reasons why made to order is making a great contribution!

In today's fast-paced world, where instant gratification is often the norm, waiting for something can feel like a burden. We want our purchases delivered promptly, and we want them now. However, there is a growing movement towards a different approach in the fashion industry – amongst other, the made-to-order business model. While it may require a bit of patience, there are several compelling reasons why opting for made-to-order clothing is a worthwhile choice. Let's explore three arguments that make this purchasing method worth considering.

Waiting for your clothing makes it even more special Brenda & Daniel, APPOLINE founders

    1. Reduced waste and environmental impact

      The fashion industry is notorious for its contribution to environmental degradation. The fast fashion model, characterized by mass production and disposable garments, generates significant waste and pollution. Made-to-order clothing presents a more sustainable alternative.

      By producing items only upon order, we can minimize waste and reduce their environmental impact. This approach eliminates excess inventory that often ends up in landfills. Additionally, we at APPOLINE prioritize sourcing high end materials from handpicked suppliers and employ ethical production practices, ensuring a more environmentally conscious fashion choice.

    2. Supporting local production

      When you purchase made-to-order clothing, you're directly supporting local businesses and artisans. In a world dominated by fast fashion giants, it's essential to empower smaller-scale designers and craftspeople who prioritize quality, craftsmanship, and ethical production.

      By choosing made-to-order garments at APPOLINE, you contribute to the growth and success of local businesses and artisans. For example, we mainly produce in Croatia, with European fabrics – minimizing the clothing travel as well. Your purchase helps them thrive in a competitive industry and maintain their commitment to creating unique, high-quality pieces. By supporting (smaller or bigger) made-to-order Brands, you promote diversity in fashion and foster a more sustainable and inclusive ecosystem.

    3. Problem solving through some adaptation

      In conclusion, while the allure of instant gratification may be strong, opting for made-to-order clothing offers numerous benefits, including reduced waste, support for local businesses and artisans, and the opportunity to some personalization of the garments.

      So why not embrace the made-to-order model, where each piece is crafted with care and attention to detail, resulting in clothing that brings you both style and the feeling to contribute to a better fashion world?
