I am Sue Lamoureux, I have designed, created and made Sarongs and Men's Neckties for over 25 years. What I mean when I say handmade, It's from start to finish.
It begins with purchasing the plain white material, ( Cotton, Viscose, Polyester, Silk, Etc. ) I import my materials from overseas and within the United States.
The Next Step is to wash all of these materials. (This prevents shrinkage).
All of the materials must be cut to size. Then, I sew a single, double or triple stitching around the entire sarong. (This prevent frazzling)
Next, I hand draw, paint or tye_dye my sarongs, most are one of a kind. I do not mass produce, I only use vegetable dyes. (this prevents fading or color runs) I do not produce any in large quantities. With some of my styles and designs I make up to 24 of each, because these are my favorites, for that year.
Now, comes the drying process. once dyed, I then pre wash each and every sarong and set to dry ( This prevents shrinkage ). Yes, every sarong is now ironed.
Item SKU, and packaged. It's now ready for shipment. Where Would You Like Me To Shipped Too ?
