We Do This

flyTie Clothing is a one-person operation.

I am responsible  for every activity relevant to its functioning.

From the formulation of design ideas to the labor needed to see them materialized to the modeling and photography to the marketing and selling to the packaging and shipping to the customer relations and everything in between, it's all on me.

And so many other independent artisans share this same experience.

It's a lot of work, and the hours invested are incalculable. 
Not to mention 
Shoulder pains
Hand cramps
Regular exhaustion

All of this comes right along with the territory. 

And despite anything and everything..the ups and downs, moments of uncertainty, undesirable heart is in this.  It's mine. It's what I do. It's what we do. 

Please support and continue to support handmade!

So touching,really!This is why I love your work so much.I'm sorry I never bought something from you,but the only reason for this is that I don't have the possibility to have a credit card.
Both of these dresses are beautiful and the second one would be so me :)!
