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! 

Because each item is 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! 

A note on sizing:

My leggings are made from a more compressive fabric and if you are in-between sizes I do suggest sizing up. 

My Bells and Slouchy fits are a softer less compressive fabric and run truer to size. 

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. It isn't transparent, just seeing the white color of the base fabric!

Inseams and Fit: Custom inseam options are available on some styles and ALL top styles can be made full length by request. Just e-mail me at dananiro@gmail.com

Most of my garments are available in sizes S, M, L and XL ~ 

SMALL - 2 to 4

MEDIUM - 6 to 8

LARGE - 10 to 12

X LARGE - 14 to 16

~ If you are in between sizes I recommend sizing up. Particularly 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. }

Some items like The Jumper and The Sweatshirt are sized as follows:

S/M - fits 2 - 6

M/L - fits 8 - 12

XL - fits 14 - 16

---

BRA and Top sizing: 

Note the top is pretty supportive for larger busts but I would recommend the Bra for A- full C cups for the best fit. 

S/M - Bust ( fullest part ) 33-37 inches and Ribcage ( Just under bust ) 30-33 inches 

M/L - Bust ( fullest part ) 38-39 inches and Ribcage ( Just under bust ) 34-36 inches 

XL - Bust ( fullest part ) 40+ inches and Ribcage ( Just under bust ) 37+ inches

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:

I try to use the Earth Friendlier option in all the materials that I choose to create my line.  These are as follows;

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 Jumper and The Slouchy are made from a soft LIGHT-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 Jogger is made from a soft blend of Recycled Polyester, Rayon ( a wood fiber ) and spandex. It is light weight and super soft and comfy. 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

The Sweatshirt is made from a soft stretch Bamboo blend ( a blend of 66% Bamboo, 28% Organic Cotton and 6% Spandex ) This fabric is dyed with eco friendly dyes. These dyes do not produce harmful chemicals or environmental pollution, therefore, comply with environmental regulations. Eco dyes are non-carcinogenic and are free from or produce no harmful aromatic amines or acute toxins. The color fastness and performance of these dyes are superior to banned dyes.

-------

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 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.

ONLY small batches of fabric are printed in each print, so my prints run out quickly. I do this to avoid having extra fabric that may not sell and this helps reduce my textile waste. 

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