Announcement    Hello! Calla here, an employee of Sky.
I am now in charge of the Etsy because Sky has been diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and has to be careful with the amount of energy they use. They are focusing on designing for upcoming shows and the free online Radical Fit queer fashion program with Chicago Public Library which you can check out at bit.ly/RadicalFitPlaylist
The Rebirth machine is still chugging along - be patient with your orders! Thank you.

Rebirth Garments are designed and made by hand by me, Sky Cubacub. I am a QPOC (Gender Queer Person of Color) from Chicago, IL with life long anxiety and panic disorders. I first dreamed of this collection when I was in high school and couldn’t find a place where I could buy a binder as a person who was under 18, and who didn't have access to a credit card to buy one online. I’m especially interested in Rebirth Garments being accessible to queercrip youth and I have a program for making free/reduced priced garments for people in need.

Please contact us if you are in need and are interested in participating in our subsidized garments program.

Radical Visibility: A QueerCrip Dress Reform Movement Manifesto

Rebirth Garments are designed and made by hand by me, Sky Cubacub. I am a QPOC (Gender Queer Person of Color) from Chicago, IL with life long anxiety and panic disorders. I first dreamed of this collection when I was in high school and couldn’t find a place where I could buy a binder as a person who was under 18, and who didn't have access to a credit card to buy one online. I’m especially interested in Rebirth Garments being accessible to queercrip youth and I’m working on creating a program for making free/reduced priced garments for people in need.

In my practice, the intensive handwork makes the process the most important part and gives me inspiration. Chainmaille has been the catalyst to every other medium that I excel in; all of the mediums I enjoy are obsessive and have repetitive patterns. It is the slow, thoughtful process that holds value and heals my mind. Through chainmaille, I have found my patience. For me, everyday is a performance where I bring my body as a kinetic sculpture into the consciousness of the people I interact with in passing and on a daily basis. I embody the spirit of Radical Visibility, and Rebirth Garments is my soft armor. I consider it armor because it has the power to give you the confidence and strength to feel comfortable in your first skin. I have been building myself this armor or protection, not against harm exactly, but as a way to give me courage. Chainmaille and Rebirth Garments are a prosthetic for the communication of my inner world. My body, my identity and my prosthesis are one cohesive being.

MISSION
Rebirth Garment’s mission is to create gender non-conforming wearables and accessories for people on the full spectrum of gender, size and ability. The line creates a community where all people can confidently express their individuality and identity. Our identity is that of QueerCrip, a politicized umbrella term that encompasses queer, gender nonconforming identities, visible and invisible disabilities/ disorders—physical, mental, developmental, emotional ect. In particular, our trans* and disabled communities have very particular clothing needs that are not adequately served by mainstream clothing designers. Instead of being centered on cisgender, heterosexual, white, thin people, Rebirth Garments is centered on QueerCrip people.

Rebirth Garments challenges mainstream beauty standards that are sizest, ableist, and conform to the gender binary. Instead, we maintain the notion of Radical Visibility, a movement based on claiming our bodies and, through the use of bright colors, exuberant fabrics, and innovative designs, highlighting the parts of us that society typically shuns. Through Radical Visibility, we refuse to assimilate and can create a QueerCrip dress reform movement.

I can make any adaptations you need!
MOST ITEMS TAKE A FULL MONTH TO MAKE. this is because every item is completely custom made to your measurements and I usually have about 400 open orders at a time! please be patient. this is slow fashion, not fast fashion!

Returns and exchange details
We cannot offer refunds. Since all garments are custom made, please double check your measurements AND address! IF YOU GIVE ME THE WRONG ADDRESS or MEASUREMENTS, you are responsible for any and all losses.

*Please remember that there is a person behind this business. I am not a robot or amazon.com, and though I care about each order and want to accommodate all people, any aggression will not be tolerated.

Shipping
PLEASE DOUBLE CHECK YOUR ADDRESS!
Shipping is primarily sent through USPS, and we will ship anywhere in the world because of the difficulty of obtaining of these types of garments worldwide.

Due to Covid and the revolutionary protests, USPS (the post office) is experiencing delays! to get a normal letter shipped from one end of Chicago to the other is taking 3 weeks sometimes!
Since July 20th it seems extra slow since the government is actively sabotaging USPS in order to suppress our votes. Please understand that the postal service is not under my control, be kind to postal workers, buy stamps to support USPS and contact the USPS board of governors to say this is not ok! Here is a document with the addresses you can mail to and phone numbers you can call for the USPS board of governors-

your order will be mailed in a plain plastic mailer, in the past I used Manila envelopes, but I have switched since covid for sanitation reasons. The package will be coming from my personal name, not from Rebirth Garments. and if shipping out of the USA, I will say that the order is a shirt or shorts rather than a binder and tucking undies for example.
