A Letter from Marilyn to you
Blue Sky Clothing began out of my VW van at the Balfour Ferry Landing after my husband passed away at a very young age. An experience which taught me that life can be unpredictably short and motivated me to want to do something meaningful with mine. I never had enough clothes growing up and when I coupled this with the knowledge that my mother and many other women struggled to find comfortable, affordable clothing in natural fibre,
Blue Sky Clothing was born!
I began producing garments in Indonesia as that was one of the only places where I could get fabrics in small quantities and where you could create prints yourself. I've been working with the same people there for over twenty years and we've all prospered together. Then through family connections, I began producing in Northern China as that is where the bamboo for clothing is grown. Our sewers work only for Blue Sky and all the garments made are Fair Trade as are the conditions and pay for my team. I love going there each year to visit and create.
