What do we mean when we say "we use end-lots of fabric"?
What are end-lots?
End lots are what's referred to as new, unused, remaining portion of material that has been designed, produced and/or purchased for a specific job/project in mind.
End lots can be:
a) the end of a bolt of fabric from a retail store
b) the end of a production roll of fabric from a designer/ design house/ studio
c) the end/ unused portion of a production run (sometimes referred to as the over-run)
d) the unused portions of stock from the supplier warehouse
Why do we care?
Once the initial project is done sometimes there is little to no use for the left-over parts. End-lots often become remnants or waste and therefore needs a new use/ user who is willing to use the material in a way or in a design that it was not previously designed or produced for. We do not want to see that material in the landfills or sitting around so long it becomes unusable.
Where are end-lots purchased from?
End-lots are purchased from design houses, garment manufacturers, private label designers and private collections.

I love LOVE the belt soooo much. You were right, the tooling enhances the buckle and I can't think of a more wonderful design. I'm so pleased. I'll have this for the rest of my life, and Casey will be able to enjoy it too.

The belt was in Monday's mail and I am wearing as I write. It's beautifully made, and despite my high expectations, better than I anticipated. Thanks very much.

I received the watchband yesterday! It is perfect, thanks again. I love it and it's everything I was looking for and more.
I know it sounds strange to say that I’m finding mask wearing fun and stylish these days - but it’s true. I have about 5 different Throckmorton Jones masks now, and I like being able to pick which one fits my mood, and/or matches what I am wearing. They fit my face nicely, and I can breathe easily through them. I have one particularly soft one I keep forgetting to take off when I get back into my house, or get into my car because it’s so comfortable! Lisa has brought a little lightness and playfulness to this awful mess we are in and I’m SO grateful for her skill and Imagination!
OMG!!!!!! Thank you SOOO much for the mask with the cannabis leaf!!!
Lisa, I want to thank you for making beautiful face masks for my family. The boys (and I) think they are wonderful. The workmanship is impeccable and they style and fabric choices perfect. Love the sleeve that allows for the addition of another layer of protection. Thanks again for your beautiful work!

Just wanted to tell you that I bought a few masks from you and get so many compliments on how cute they are. I have given several people your website. Keep up the good work!
I love wearing mine, and always get complements. It’s fun being noticed for something interesting and beautiful! On a side note, I took a teaching job from March through May, and brought my LOVE WINS button with me. I pinned it on the poster of behavior expectations. It was eye catching and set the right tone for our 1st grade classroom. It’s my favorite saying now. Your LOVE WINS colors and design should be on your bags! You should brand it if you haven’t already!
“You listen to the customers needs and were able to use your imagination to come to a solution. Just charming in General. .”
