Provenance

Seamstress of Bloomsbury

This company does not (that we are aware of) publicly make available any information about their values, actions or commitments to any sustainable or ethical practices.

We asked them for a statement, it reads as follows:

‘we allocate production to factories in a number of different countries from UK to Europe to Asia’.

Seamstress and Revival Retro

We first met the owner, around 2012 (?) when the company was first being set up and we talked about their intentions. At the time, and still to this day, talking to Mike we like and respect him and because of that we want to believe there is integrity in the Seamstress of Bloomsbury’s working practices, even if we don’t know what they are.

It is a concern that The Seamstress of Bloomsbury doesn’t want to be transparent when consumers want to know but at the same time, in this industry and this climate, there are many different reasons why companies won’t reveal info about provenance, largely due to competitors trying to leverage this. 

We know that many customers want to see a range of pricing available at Revival Retro and we feel confident enough to offer Seamstress of Bloomsbury as a provider of lower priced vintage dresses where the quality exceeds the price tag. You will need to decide for yourself if the attractiveness of the price tag outweighs the need for a known commitment to a set of values or guiding principles.
