Co-Founder @MakersValley! I am Italian and most importantly a Global Citizen, I was raised by boutique owners, fed by a seamstress and taught by a shoe distributor. I am passionate about experiential open manufacturing, supply chain and democratizing the manufacturing industry by connecting great doers with excellent makers.
Fashion designers evaluate several factors when choosing where to manufacture their clothing lines and accessories. Beyond the sticker price for labor, fashion designers must consider the quality of the craftsmanship, shipping and customs fees, contract negotiations, language barriers, transparency, and more.
