FAQ

Who are you?!

HelloFruits is a handmade clothing label run by one girl and her netflix account, plus a handful of brilliant friends. Inspired by the DIY punk movement, riot grrls and Japanese fashion, the label finally came to life in 2014 after years of research, starting with a handful of embroidered shirts and harnesses, into what it is today!.

Where are you based?

In little studio right in the middle of the greatest city in the world - Sheffield Steel City (UK)

Where do you source your materials from?

Wherever I can, I try to source our materials as locally as possible. All clothes are made-to-order, which means the fabric is bought and used in response to that. I believe in supporting local businesses to help the independent economy grow as much as possible, as well as being an environmentally responsible company in the face of fast, wasteful fashion.

Are you vegan-friendly?

I love all animals, and so I try, wherever possible to use vegan-friendly fabrics. 
I will never use real leather; all products are either PVC or leatherette. Nor do I use wool, silk or feathers, unless they're synthetic!

Is this all handmade?

Almost everything available in the shop has been handmade or handfinished in the studio and has been labelled to reflect that. 

My aim is to create my own unique patterns, as well as hand cutting/sewing/painting all products in the studio.

In the event where something I have is not handmade (vintage jackets for example) I try to give the most accurate description possible so you know what you are buying! 

Do you do collaborations?

I do! I'm always on the lookout to find fun and innovative creative businesses to create magical products with! 

Do you sponsor bloggers/photographers/artists etc?

Unfortunately at this time, I'm not taking on any more sponsorships!

Can we be BFFs?

Yes, duh. I've already made you a friendship bracelet! (bring cake)

How can we stalk you a bit more?

Find HF on facebook, instagram or tumblr (links at the bottom of the page)! Where I often post pictures of the things I love, giveaways, sneak peeks, and approximately 1000000000 pictures of cats.

Do you ship worldwide?

Heck yeah!
