The BF+DA s.LAB offers one-on-one customized consulting services to the public.
We work with designers to provide them with a general overview of sustainable manufacturing principles— with particular expertise in apparel. Based on your needs, we can advise on both specific sourcing requirements or basic understanding of production for soft or hard goods.
Some things we can help with are:
- Sourcing better fabrics and mills through our textile library
- Life cycle thinking: a general overview or an assessment of your specific product(s)
- Setting sustainability goals: inventory your sustainable strategies and how you can scale/add to them
- Referrals to apparel manufacturers within our extensive database
- How to produce locally
Our consulting rate is $180 for the first 1.5 hour session and $120 for subsequent hours / sessions. It’s best if you have an idea of what you’re looking for and send special requests a few days in advance so we can prepare for the session. To book an appointment, contact the s.LAB.
In addition to our individual consulting sessions, we offer on-site corporate consulting to larger fashion or product brands. For more information about these services, contact firstname.lastname@example.org and use “Corporate Consulting” as the subject.
