FGL Store, a small scale business based in Varberg, Sweden. Founded in 2013.
We work closely with families in Jaipur, Northern India.
Our entire process is by hand, with manual labour.
We design on paper, print by using wooden blocks and dye in small batches. No item is made in mass production.
- All colours used are natural
- We strive to create a long lasting wardrobe and believe that fashion doesn't have to come in seasonal collections.
Slow fashion is here to stay
- After buying FGL clothing, we recomend that you wash them by hand and allow to hang dry. It's better for both our environment and your new garments.
- You won't see FGL participating in big sales as we don't follow seasons with our everyday, all year fashion.
Our production is weather dependent.
The production is made at slow pace, due to sun, wind and rain.
It arrives to our store when it's ready.
The production usually takes about 6 months to complete.
In our production team, men and women are working together.
With fair wages. We are proud to say that our business supports around 60 families in Jaipur.
About our Store in Varberg - When we decided to open up our store we wanted to keep it simple. We bought most of our interior furniture from vintage shops and got things made for us by local carpenters.
Shipping - When shipping your order we use recycled wrapping paper and left over off cuts of fabric for beatiful wrapping.
Zero Waste - We started project 'Zero Waste' as we aim to create clothing that reduces left over fabric on the cutting room floor.
Our belief is that as little as possible should be wasted - and since we have the power to make production decisions ourselves we want to have our say and make a difference.
Given that normally about 15-20 % of the fabric used to produce clothing ends up as waste, this project is no easy task. But with a bit of creativity and innovation we allow our creators to reduce their textile waste when cutting and printing.
For us, it is only natural that what cannot be prevented from being left over should be recycled into small items, like hairbands and scarves.
