Announcement   All Gaia Conceptions clothing is handmade with certified organic and sustainable fabrics which have inspired simple, timeless, and ethical designs rooted in comfort and multifunction. Each garment is hand cut and sewn based on your style and size choice for a custom garment made just for you. Finally each piece is hand dyed using natural plant dyes or fiber reactive low impact dyes. Every item is made at the Gaia House studio from start to finish in beautiful North Carolina.

We offer an extensive range of separates designed to be worn together, layered or apart. The Gaia collection is the perfect juxtaposition -- elegant yet relaxed, sophisticated and rustic, polished yet casual. Each piece compliments the other, yet stands alone in strength and style.

Because all pieces are hand cut, sewn, and dyed please expect variations in each garment. These subtle differences should be celebrated as the mark of a hand made piece created especially for you!

====================================================================
SIZE and FIT:

Please use the SIZE CHART found in the description with each item to determine your general size. Gaia garments are true to our Size Chart so please don’t order based on what size you are in other companies garment sizes. Basing your desired fit around your true measurements will yield the best results. Please keep in mind we make CUSTOM CLOTHING here at Gaia Conceptions NOT TAILORED clothing. A Tailored fit requires the body to be present.

RELAXED FIT – order one size up from your measurement

GENERAL FIT - order the size closest to your measurements, it is normal for your garment to be a snug at first, it will relax out after 15-20 mins of wearing

FITTED FIT – order one size down from measurements, this will be pretty tight at first and should relax out after wearing for 15-20 mins. This is only recommended if you have ordered a general fit from us before and are confident the one size down is going to give you the fitted look you prefer.

HOW TO TAKE YOUR MEASUREMENTS:
BUST - this includes your breast, not your bra size
WAIST - smallest part torso
HIP - largest part of hip measurement


♥ If this is your first time ordering custom clothing we recommend getting 1-2 items to get an idea of fit before placing a large order.

♥ Please keep in mind that all body types are different and people with the same measurements can look drastically different in the same garment. Nothing beats a visit to your local tailor to get the perfect fit as having a person present can sometimes be the only way to achieve a really specific look. However, a little tweaking is totally doable!!!!!


====================================================================
COLOR:
- Each Garment is dyed by hand with fiber reactive dyes or natural plant dyes. The color chart is located in image 5 with most items. For the best idea of color refer to clothing images.
- Colors will vary depending on your computers color settings and from dye bath to dye bath. This is the nature of dyeing things by hand on organic fabrics.
✳ Even the same fabric can take the dye differently due to seasonal changes that are more prominent in non GMO organic fiber crops, all colors will be lighter on our cotton fabrics, and any slight tone variations due to the hand dyeing process will even out during first few washing.

FOR MORE COLORS, NATURAL DYE OPTIONS, AND INFORMATION VISIT http://www.gaiaconceptions.com

===================================================================
OUR FABRICS:

CERTIFIED ORGANIC COTTONS - are grown in Texas and India (fair trade), ginned in North Carolina, and made into fabric in South Carolina. These are my most sustainable fabrics and I offer a Light Weight Knit, Stretchy Lycra, French Terry Lycra, and a thin Tissue Paper Weight Knit. These fabrics are very soft and smooth.

HEMP/CERTIFIED ORGANIC COTTON BLENDS - These fabrics are a bit thicker and more textured when compared to the organic cotton and are grown and manufactured in China (fair trade). It is offered in a light to med Weight Knit, French Terry, Woven Summer Cloth, Fleece, or a Stretchy Lycra.

ORGANIC MERINO WOOLS - These fabrics are soft, warm, and 100% NOP certified organic knit Merino wools from South America. A superior quality wool that embodies all of the intuitive characteristics we have come to love about wool.

WE DO NOT USE BAMBOO, MODEL, OR TENCEL/LYOCELL FABRIC DUE TO THE EXTREMELY DANGEROUS AND HIGHLY TOXIC CHEMICAL CALLED CARBON DISULPHIDE REQUIRED TO TURN WOOD PULP INTO FABRIC !!!! THE GREEN WASHING SPIN ON THIS IS THAT IT IS A CLOSED LOOP SYSTEM BUT IT STILL INFUSES THIS CHEMICAL INTO THE FABRIC...NO THANKS :)

WE DO NOT USE SOY FABRIC BECAUSE THE RAINFOREST IS BEING LEVELED AT A CATASTROPHIC RATE TO MEET CONSUMER DEMAND . SOY IS THE 2ND MOST GENETICALLY MODIFIED ROUND UP READY CROP IN THE WORLD.

Severely disappointed in Gaia's customer service. This shop is a NO REFUND/RETURN shop. Buy with caution, it's a very expensive mistake you cannot return. I ordered this dress in the natural colour, but when I received it and tried it on, it was see through. But Andrea of Gaia says it better in her assessment of the material when I contacted them, "This fabric is a 5oz light weight knit fabric that can be considered SLIGHTLY SHEER in its undyed color or some of our lighter colors." But no mention of that in the material description in the listing! When I contacted them to return the dress, they refused. They offered an overdye, but I had ordered the dress for my wedding party with my family and friends and didn't even get to wear it. Poor quality material and craftsmanship. I will never get to wear it.

About

The Gaia Story

2003 – 2007

Gaia Conceptions was founded by clothing designer Andrea in 2003. Her focus was hand sewing and hand dyeing clothing made with organic fabrics, earth friendly dyes, and simple designs. She was still completing her degree so Gaia Conceptions remained small and festival based. She spent 2006 experimenting with natural dyes in Hyderabad, India and studying environmental policy and sustainable design in Amsterdam, Netherlands. She returned to North Carolina with a renewed focus on local organic materials and a head full of nomadic designs. Launching an ETSY shop in 2007 helped Gaia Conceptions designs reach the world and has catapulted the company to where it is today. They are now a team of 7, and thanks to you, are sure to grow a little more each year.

2007 – 2012

Team Gaia has spent the last 6 years nurturing and refining their ethos as they grow. Andrea has created an extensive collection of designs that are rooted in comfort, nomadic style, and multifunctional utilitarianism. Staying true to the handmade foundation of their start, each Gaia garment is still hand sewn and hand dyed at the studio in Greensboro, NC.

Many friendships where made with fellow natural dye artisans during Andrea’s studies and travel throughout India in 2006. Returning to India in the summer of 2011, she teamed up with a Master Natural Dye Artisan to design a collection of hand blockprinted fabrics.

Growing and harvesting the first North Carolina Organic Cotton crop was another amazing next step to localizing one of their materials. Bringing more green jobs to their home state and sourcing their organic materials within a 30 mile radius is a key step in making Gaia Conceptions as sustainable as possible.

2013

Building an Organic Fiber Farm – Incorporating rainwater catchment systems, solar and wind energy, and green waste management systems into the production cycle is a natural next step. Team Gaia will be building a new studio that will begin incorporating all these elements in 2013. They will also begin growing some of their natural dyes and organic cotton material on site.

A continued collaboration with the Natural Dye Blockprinting team in India is sure to bring new and beautiful designs each year.

2014
New Studio, Boutique, and Natural Dye Demo garden is complete. The Gaia Tribe started working at new studio space in Jan and NOMAD the Gaia Conceptions Boutique opened March 20th.
