Process

Every Thief&Bandit piece starts on our twelve foot long print table, where fabric is carefully silkscreen printed by the yard. Every different color is a different layer, and we only use non-toxic water based inks. Once our fabric is dried on the table, it is then further heat set to ensure print longevity. This fabric then moves to our in-studio sewing room, where our talented seamstresses cut and sew each piece by hand.


Our commitment to sustainability extends to all aspects of our business as we continue to adapt to new and innovative environmentally friendly production methods and packaging. We are proud to print on organic cottons, jersey, recycled linens and a 100% recycled swim fabric called ChicoSante. Our inks are non-toxic and water based, and our swimsuits are printed using sublimation printing by an independent Canadian supplier. We package orders in 100% compostable mailers or our branded cardboard boxes.
