How to support Independent Fashion Brands and US Manufacturing with Safety in Mind in the time of COVID
The past few months have changed the way we live, shop, and operate as businesses. As we continue to learn and grow in the time of COVID-19, we want to update our shoppers on how the virus is affecting our brands, business, and operations so that you are fully informed.
1. Our Manufacturing Network is distributed - so production continues!
Nineteenth Amendment products are produced on-demand just for you in partner manufacturing facilities across the USA. Manufacturers of these products are located around the US in places like Chicago, New York, North Carolina, Puerto Rico and more! Luckily, our distributed network of manufacturers allow brands to maintain operation during this time - so you can still shop all the products on the marketplace.
2. Safety is our main priority
All items are being made under safe conditions with the correct precautions - social distancing in facilities with on-going work and adherence to guidelines around wearing the appropriate masks outside of personal spaces.
3. Support independent brands - creating and selling while distanced
Your order on Nineteenth Amendment goes to support not only the independent brand but also the manufacturing partners creating the product - an entire local supply chain - making beautiful items on your behalf. We, our brands, and our manufacturing partners greatly appreciate your support. Thank you for voting with your wallet.
4. You’ll always be informed of any delays
Behind each of these brands and every product are the people imagining and creating your item. With the virus still circulating, it is possible some of those involved or their families may get sick or for state ordinances to temporarily halt operations and this may impact their ability to fulfill a product. In these worse case scenarios, we are committed to being fully transparent and will keep you informed if this affects any delivery timeline for your product.
We are committed to continue changing the world one garment at a time and we thank you again for your support on this journey!
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us before or after placing your order.
Stay safe and health,
The Nineteenth Amendment Team
