We value transparency and believe the tedious process of bringing a collection to life is an art form and the various partners needed at each stage of development and production are the artists. We are proud to work with our partners as they align with our strongly held values of executing high quality work, a love for the design process and collaboration, only use ethically sourced labor, and are mindful towards sustainability.
Starting a brand from scratch is an extremely difficult process. Not only is it costly, it is difficult to find partners that align with a brand's core values and are willing to work with a new brand that is unable to commit to the very high minimums typically found in the industry. Owner, Claire Pardington, utilized her own network, as well as months of research to find the top industry experts willing to take a risk on her new brand. Our entire collection (from development to production) is proudly made in New York City, with materials and trims imported from the highest quality mills in Italy and our faux fur materials from Shanghai.
PARDINGTON COLLECTIVE would also like to acknowledge B&J fabrics-one of the industry's most famous and high-end textile vendors!
