Frequently Asked Questions
Below you’ll find our most commonly asked questions, but if you can’t find what you’re looking for, jump over to our contact page and we’ll do our best to answer your questions.
Where are your clothes made?
Our garments are exclusively made in Minneapolis, Minnesota. We work with a female-owned sewing factory, as well as other talented seamstresses to produce all of our clothing. Producing in small batches locally enables us to ensure that every piece is made ethically and to the highest standard, while also supporting several other small businesses. Many of our accessories and smaller items are handmade by yours truly.
What kind of fabric do you use?
We use only the softest natural fibers from select mills in the USA, Japan, and occasionally, China. Whenever possible, we specify organic material. While we wish all of our fabrics were made in the USA and we 100 percent organic, it’s not always economically viable, especially for a company our size and the volumes we produce. Hopefully some day the textile industry in the U.S. will again be more robust and sustainable.

How do I care for my Sisterland piece?
Please refer to the care instruction label on the garment. Care instructions are also available on the product page. We recommend hand washing with a mild detergent whenever possible. Do not bleach. Cool iron as needed.
Can I machine wash my daughter’s dress / pants / top?
Yes, all of our pieces can be machine-washed cold and tumbled dry, although we generally recommend hand washing to increase the longevity of the garment. Please refer to the care label or product page for complete instructions.
Do I have to do anything special for linen?
Natural fibers such as linen tend to get softer and become more wrinkled in the dryer. If you want a crisper look, we recommend hang drying and ironing on a low temperature setting.
