Slow Saturdays - Intro

Introducing Slow Saturdays
Have you ever wondered what goes into the design and manufacturing of your favorite Slow Factory scarf? Have you thought about the motivations of founder and CEO Céline Semaan? In our fast, increasingly inundated culture, we think it’s high time that brands slowed down and connected with their customers about these very things. For this reason, we are introducing Slow Saturdays, a feature that will share the heart and soul of Slow Factory with you, some of our very favorite people on planet Earth (and beyond).

From multiplying tons of fast fashion and a troubling fashion calendar, to developing world sweatshops and the loss of handmade crafts around the world, the modern fashion industry is deeply broken. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
Slow Factory is a fashion house on a mission—to fuse the principles of modern design with the ideology of a truly responsible, compassionate business. That is the fashion of the future. That is the future. We’re just getting started, and we have a whole lot that is planned for the months ahead. As we proceed on this journey, we want to share with you the decisions, tradeoffs, challenges and hopes we experience along the way. Our plan is that you’ll better get to know us, and to get a peak inside what we do and how we do it.
And our hope is that we’ll better get to know you. We want to hear what we’re doing well, and what we could be doing better. We want to understand from you how we can help create the fashion objects of your dreams.
As a company rooted in the wonder of the universe and the achievements human beings have made in space, we are reminded constantly that we stand on the shoulders of giants.
Our visions can go father. Our opportunities are unlimited. The future of fashion is ours to shape. Join us!
