How it's made/Sizing

Hi!! I am DANA and I am the owner, designer and MAKER of ROOT! I make your clothes! Everything is sewn by me with fabric printed on demand with my own original artwork! 

A note on sizing:

My garments are sublimated prints ( so printed onto a white fabric ) because of this sometimes you can see some white "grin" if the pant is too tight. I reccoment going up a size if in-between to avoid this. It isn't transparent, just seeing the white color of the base fabric!

Inseams and Fit:

All my garments are available in sizes S, M and L ~ ( I will be expanding sizing soon, please email me to get on the wait list ) 

SMALL - 2 to 4

MEDIUM - 6 to 8

LARGE - 10 to 12

~ If you are in between sizes I recommend sizing up. Especially in the Legging and Short as they are made from my more compressive ( yet still soft! Like a hug on your legs! ) EcoPoly. The Bell fabric is less compressive, a buttery soft Recycled Poly. { For more on my fabrics see the Fabric section below. }

* The Leggings :

Regular length inseam is 29 inches, Ankle length is 24 inches and Capri is 21 inches.  ( I can do custom inseams by request but aren't returnable, If you would like a custom inseam on this cut please e-mail me at dananiro@gmail.com prior to purchase. No extra charge but again, non-returnable )

* The Short inseam is 3 inches and features a rectangle gusset. 

* The Bell is available in Regular inseam: 31 inches and Tall inseam: 34 inches  ( I can do custom inseams by request but aren't returnable, If you would like a custom inseam on this cut please e-mail me at dananiro@gmail.com prior to purchase. No extra charge but again, non-returnable )

 

How I make:

ALL my garments are made right in my loving living room in Calistoga California and everything is sewn by me ( Dana, the owner and designer ) Please allow 7-14 days for me to make your garment! Fabric for my Bell is printed in LA with my original artwork. 

My goal is to eventually set up a studio outside my home here in Calistoga and employ local Mamas on a flexible schedule so they have an opportunity to be home with their kids and earn when they have time.

         

Fabric:

Fabric that I use in my line are; Recycled Polyester, EcoPoly, and for my ROOT Basics tanks ( coming soon ) Organic USA Grown Cotton.

The Bell is made from a soft mid-weight Recycled Polyester fabric that is perfect for summer or hot practices or life off the mat. Using recycled materials helps reuse and keep out the tons of petroleum based materials that fill landfill and oceans each year. If every company started to reuse existing materials a huge impact would be made in our environmental impact.   

The Legging, The Capri, The Top and The Short are made from my soft yet compressive EcoPoly fabric. This fiber is eco-friendly since it requires significantly less energy and water during manufacturing than conventional polyester

Both types of fabric wick moisture very well and flatter all the right places and body types.

Easy care. Hand or machine wash in cold water with a phosphate-free detergent and machine dry on Low ( or air dry for the environment! ) Do not bleach. 

In addition I strive to be a waste free business. I save all my textile remnants and repurpose them into limited one of a kind creations, my packaging and whatever is too small I send back to be turned back into more recycled polyester fabric. 

At ROOT I strive to be as earth friendly and low impact as possible by choosing the earth friendlier options as I conduct my business. Unfortunalty unless we stop buying things and become nudists there is always some impact made by the apparel industry. My hope is be being a mindful manufacturer and by you being a conscious consumer we can make a change in how the industry as a whole functions.  

How long will it take to get my item?

Because each item is printed, cut and sewn by hand and sole by me it takes roughly 7-14 days prior to shipment to make. Thank you for your patience! 

My Fabric is printed by Sublimation. Sublimation is a process in which ink is set into synthetic fabric using very high heats. When heated, the ink instantly becomes a gas that in turn is trapped in the fabric fibers. The transferred ink cannot be rubbed off and is evenly distributed within the fabric. You cannot feel the print on the fabric surface and it has amazing washability. This process is also very environmentally friendly as no water is used and no toxic dye run-off is created.

Our fabrics do not fade or pill, yay!  Vivid print that will never fade after washing, this ultra-stretch fabric holds shape even after multiple wearings.

ALL my prints are made with my original hand-drawn artwork and will be so made like this always.

I design my prints by hand and they are engineered to flatter the body - you aren't a couch to be upholstered after all!
