Once you have placed your pre-order, it can take up to one month to complete production.
This is because there are various steps we take first to ensure exceptional quality before it arrives on your doorstep. We begin by cutting the fabric, and then sending it off for the machinist to sew it together. Once that is done, they send it back to the design studio where we check its quality and finally send it off to you. Please note there will be an additional waiting time for shipping, please head over to shipping for more information.
We make your Bou Soie pyjamas on a pre-order basis, cut in the fabric colour of your choice. By manufacturing only what's needed, we reduce dead stock left behind due to overproducing. This means that dead stock will never be discarded. It also means that resources that go into making the product will not be wasted if the product is not consumed. For example, the energy used to power the sewing machines and manufacture the fabrics will only be used if a product is ordered.
We do not stock fabrics, the fabrics will only be purchased when an order is placed. This means we do not discard any dead stock fabric if we overbuy it. Pre-orders can also prevent impulse shopping and overconsumption.
Making to order also helps our brand grow as we do not waste our resources on manufacturing stock we may not sell. This means we have a larger manufacturing budget, and the machinists are paid fairly for the making of each garment.
Pre-orders can also prevent impulse shopping and overconsumption.
