First-time customers must pay 100% advance for samples. Repeat customers pay a 50% advance before sample processing and balance before the samples are dispatched.

What is your production capacity?

We specialize in smaller, limited-run orders up to around 1000 garments or weaving up to around 1000 meters fabric. Have a bigger order? Contact us to see what is possible.

Do you offer organic cotton fabric options?

Yes, we do offer organic cotton fabric options including GOTS certified fabric.

Can you weave fabric to my specifications?

Yes we can. Send us the desired fabric specifications and we'll weave it for you.

How long will my order take to manufacture? (domestic)

From the day your order is finalized and the advance received you can expect production to take approximately 45 days (ready to ship). Actual production time depends on the quantity and complexity of your order and will be confirmed at the time the order is finalized.

I have a sample product I would like to reproduce, can you do that?

We have a very broad skill base for garments, textiles and crafts and are capable of producing a wide range of products. Send us a picture of your product and we'll let you know if we can make it. If your sample resembles products found in our catalog, we can almost certainly reproduce it. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.

Will my designs be safe with Sasha?

Yes, your designs are safe with us. We absolutely respect your ownership of your unique designs - they will never be shared with anyone else without your explicit permission. We have worked with international designers like Carla Peters, Helen Lockie, John Ballyn and Simona Stoppa as well as Indian designers like Sonam Dubal, Anchu Arora, Jason Cheran and Swati Kalsi to name a few.

Why are there imperfections in my product?

Unlike machine-made products which can be near-perfect clones of each other, no two handmade products will ever be identical. There will always be small imperfections in the finished product - this uniqueness is part of the character and charm of handmade items. 

Can you work from digital design files?

Please submit all digital files in PDF or jpeg format. We do not have the facilities to work with CAD files.
