About Bombsheller

Bombsheller was founded on the idea that the clothing manufacturing industry can do better. With modern technology at our fingertips, it’s time to do away with “fast fashion,” an industry that relies on cheap labor, cheap materials, and a lot of generated waste. Every pair of Bombsheller manufactured leggings is printed, cut, and sewn on demand at our headquarters in beautiful Seattle, Washington.

Our Mission

Fashion for Every Body

People come in all kinds of shapes and sizes, and we all deserve to wear clothing that makes us feel good. That mass production cycle of predicting what will sell often means catering to only specific sizes. Printing on demand frees us from restrictive sizing - so why wouldn’t we offer sizes XS to 6X?

We put great care into building our sizes. The human body doesn't just "scale up" with size, and clothing shouldn’t either, so we do real-world testing every product on real bodies of all kinds to ensure the best possible fit at each size.

Ethical Production

Big box stores often use "fast fashion" to make a quick buck that comes at a cost. This method means predicting trends seasons in advance, ordering tons of back stock, and using cheap materials and labor to offset the cost of the clothing that doesn't sell.

We don't mess with sweatshops. It's true that our fabric is imported, but our material is ethically sourced and only ever goes from the textile factory to our own headquarters in beautiful Seattle, Washington. Here, we produce clothing on-demand, which significantly reduces the amount of waste we create by not trying to burn through endless back stock and by not going through multiple shipping stages across the globe to get to us. We also employ a team of local, talented sewists who are given endless praise, music of their choice, and decent wages.

Our Fabric

When we first started Bombsheller, we traveled the world in search of a material we could wear on the run or on the runway. It needed to be comfortable, durable, fashionable, and ethically sourced.
In Italy, we found Fabric Fatale.

Versatility

Our polyester/spandex blend really will take you anywhere. Whether you’re in the gym, on a mountaintop, on the runway, or just lounging on your couch to marathon your favorite show, the material moves with you like a second skin; it's a lot like being naked, but better. Naked doesn’t offer SPF 50+ without investing in a lot of sunscreen first.

Bluesign® Certified

Fabric Fatale is a bluesign® certified material. The system follows five core principles for production: resource productivity, consumer safety, water emission, air emission, and occupational health and safety. It also defines concrete criteria for ingredients, manufacturing processes, and finished products to ensure peak sustainability. In short, it’s certified better for the planet, and better for the people on it.

Our Process

TrapperKeeper fabric

Step 1: Design

You create the designs! After adapting your art to our template, you can 3D render your designs in Artemix, a tool we’ve specially made to help you create the most flattering shapes possible once they’re on the body. If your artist teams up with a designer to adapt the art to the human form, we make sure to credit both the artist and the designer in the waistband.

Step 2: Print

We use dye sublimation to get crisp, vibrant prints that won't bleed or fade. When you place an order, your design are printed onto paper first before being heat pressed onto the surface of our fabric. During this process, the ink goes from being a solid to a gas, then back to a solid again without ever passing through the liquid stage. Not only is the science behind this incredibly cool, but unlike traditional fabric dying, this process is incredibly fast and doesn’t dump tons of ink into our oceans.

Step 3: Assemble

Mass production for big box stores often means cutting huge stacks of fabric all at once, which results in inconsistent sizing. Our talented sewists carefully cut each leg one at a time with nifty electric scissors (no carpal tunnel here!) to ensure accurate sizing before carefully stitching the pieces together. Once they’re ready to go, they’re lovingly sealed up with care instructions and our shipping department sends them on their way!
