The Battenwear Cooperative is a private membership program providing advance access to full collections as soon as we design them.
A LITTLE HISTORY: When we founded Battenwear back in 2011, we put our full energy first into making great clothes and second into getting them sold in the best boutiques around the world. More recently, we've begun our third major effort: growing our direct-to-customer retail business. We're thrilled to have been able to cultivate a great group of core customers, like you, who understand and appreciate the clothes and gear that we make. We can't thank you enough.
A CHALLENGE: We've (happily) spent a lot of time fielding emails and phone calls from customers searching for a particular Battenwear item that we don't happen to have on hand. We purposefully do not keep a huge in-house inventory for a variety of economic, administrative, and environmental reasons, but that doesn't mean we haven't been frustrated when watching our customers need to shop all over the world for something we could have made for them in the first place!
A HAPPY SOLUTION: The Cooperative, a private membership for engaged Battenwear customers, is our way of showing you a new collection at the same time we show it to our stores (before we start producing it) so that you can shop it in advance and tell us directly what to make for you.
The next collection that we are making available for Battenwear Cooperative pre-ordering is Summer Vacation 2018.

QUESTIONS WHILE SHOPPING? Need guidance on size? Or have questions about our fits and fabrics? We will be on available during the shopping period to respond to your email, hop on a call, or Facetime/Skype with you to clarify any details that you might be curious about.
RETURN/REFUND POLICY FOR PREORDER: We hope to be able to address your questions about items before we make them for you. But if any item you receive does not meet your expectations, we will work to find a satisfactory exchange. If we are not able to find a solution, we will of course issue a refund.
NOTE: The Battenwear SV18 collection is only visible when you're logged in with the password. While you're shopping, please note that SV18 preorder items are only found in the SV18 dropdown
