Yes, we are a clothing community/company that doesn’t have clothing (yet!) We are at the very beginning of a lengthy and exciting journey! Development of a garment, especially one the market hasn’t seen yet, takes a great deal of time. The stages of this process are:
- Time Study
- Quality Control
As you can see, that’s a lot of steps. As of today, April 17th, 2017, we are on Stage 2: Sketches. Our pants are a novel approach to exercise attire because they change with your body and activity. If you’re doing yoga or lounging or cleaning or interested in a looser fit, Sassy Pants will do that. If you want to run a 5k or do a long jump or rock climb, Sassy Pants will do that. The same pair of Sassy Pants, too.
Our official mission states that we are all about fostering a community driven by helping those around us achieve their goals. That extends to those making Sassy Pants as well. We are working with a local manufacturer to ensure that Sassy Pants contribute to a living wage and quality work environment for those actually sewing the clothing. We are able to visit and inspect those aspects as well as personally quality control check EACH and EVERY pair of our pants. That means we can guarantee that every item that ships will be of the highest quality.
As we move through the steps to develop the best product possible for our customers, you will be an integral part of this journey. Your voice, needs, and fitness goals will be aggregated and inform the process as we develop this product.
While we develop our pants, we want to make sure that you are part of the whole process. You will see the behind the scenes of each stage through blog posts, Instagram, snapchat, twitter, and, once we’re in the factory, production vlogs on our YouTube channel!
