M.PATMOS production techniques are socially conscious and eco-friendly. Always a symbiotic balance of artisan methods of production with modern technology, Patmos’s collections exhibit thoughtfully handcrafted elements side by side with innovative technological advances to create a full range of garments from investment pieces to everyday essentials.
A portion of our products are made in Peru. The workshops we work with use traditional, and in turn, sustainable methods of clothing production. These methods include natural dyeing, spinning, knitting, and weaving, all done by hand using little to no electricity. These are skills that have been passed down lineages of knitters and weavers and often families of artisans are able to work together. These workshops practice fair wage and conditions for their crafters, purchases alpaca fibers directly from local farmers to increase the farmer's profit for their yieldings.
When you see cashmere and silk styles in our shop, you can know they were made in Nepal, either from a collective of women artisans, or from a small master weaving workshop. When working with Merino Wool, they import the fibers from China and hand-dye them in-house. Like the workshops in Peru, those in Nepal employ fair wages, hours, and treatment of their artisans.
Our cotton styles, often hand-loomed, are tailor-made in India in a small factory where each maker works with one piece from start to finish. This ensures product consistency and craftsman pride. This also creates an unseen connection between the wearer and maker. We've ensured this factory, like our workshops in Peru and Nepal, employ fair wages and treatment of their makers.
Our newest partnership has resulted in our Made in Brooklyn collection. This factory, just outside of Industry City, allows us to reduce inventory waste with their on-demand production fulfillment technology. Their yarn stock program also allows us to have zero material excess and produce more sustainable garments using Japanese whole garment zero-waste knitting technology. In turn, we can use yarn reserves from past Made-in-U.S.A. production.
