Q

  • What happens after I fill in my details on the order page?

    Alison will be in touch so you can talk about what you’re after and she can let you know how much your order will cost. Then you’ll make a time to have a fitting and choose a fabric.

  • How much and how long?

    The price includes the fabric, taxes, operational costs and the labour involved (fitting, drafting, cutting, sewing).

    The cost of labour is founded in the space between the customer being able to justify a fair price and the clothesmaker being able to make a living. Therefore the prices vary from 4000kr for a simple garment to 7000kr for a more involved garment.

    Orders can take a few days or a few weeks depending on different factors but once the order is decided and you have paid the invoice, then you will receive a receipt with the confirmed date of completion.

  • Is it possible to come with my own fabric?

    If it’s special fabric and it can be sewn with a lockstitch sewing machine, then absolutely! Just ask!

  • Can you come to me to do the fitting?

    No problem, if you live in Stockholm!

  • How about if I live far away from Stockholm?

    Ah ha! The big question of how to expand this way of working out into the world. Well, right now Frol is not really focusing on that. But if you’re really into it we can have a chat about what you would like and depending on the garment, it may be possible to get the right fit by sending your measurements or by posting a garment that fits you well.

  • What happens if the garment doesn’t fit correctly after I receive it?

    Alison will alter it until it fits.

  • Why are the clothes and fabric shown separately?

    Not pre-deciding the fit and fabric of a garment is part of Frol’s philosophy to produce garments that are removed from fashion and the doctrine of what is hot and what is not.

  • What does hand-produced mean?

    Hand-produced means that the maker has an emotional interest in the product rather than the motions being divided into repetitive tasks within a production line.

  • Why would you want to work in this way when you can produce garments in a factory like a normal brand?

    Because a clothesmaker is interested in bringing craft production back to an industry where branding, advertising, mass-production, mass-profit and mass-waste have become so unethical, so unsustainable and so normal.

  • Can you repair my Frol trousers that ripped when I jumped over a fence?

    No problem 🙂
