What’s better to share on Mermaid Monday other than this!?! I can’t think of anything better! The “secret” tail is making its way into my photography is part of our "coming soon" Signature Series. You want this tail you say? Well, here’s the scoop! This isn’t going to be categorized as a Spellbound Tail, but rather part of my new Signature Collection. I absolutely ADORE creating mermaid and merman magic for all of you, but I wanted to have the opportunity to create something rather exclusive to my personal fistic, artistic style, giving me full artistic freedom to create some awesome magic ✨ What this means is I’m going to get a few minor details from clients and I’m going to create a one of a kind tail that I have total control over and at a limited quantity. Instead of producing hundreds of these beauties, I want it to be more authentic and limited! Whilst I’m still working out the bugs and final decisions, I wanted the opportunity to share this with you as I know many of your have been very curious as to what I have planned next for Mertailor!

Just something I'd like to mention to all of you if you didn't know already!
Our products are made in the USA (With the exception of our $5 closeout Abyss Collection of men's swimsuits from 2016). The Abyss Collection was our first and last line of product(s) purchased overseas. I decided that I wanted Mertailor to be "American Made" and support my community.
Our product lines are made in our studio, right here in Crystal River, FL, not a factory in any other state or country.
We operate and manufacture in-house.
Many of our products have a 5-7 day production time as we normally make to order and not trying to "overstock" our product lines like other companies do when they order in quanities over seas. Our motto is QOQ, "Quality Over Quantity".
Our entire team of talented individuals are creating everything from start to finish. This includes the beginning design of the product lines, pattern making and the graduation of patterns, printing and transferring of all the various fabrics we use including spandex, neoprene, and minky fabrics, cutting and sewing of the garments, quality control, and packaging and fullfillment. However, that's just the half of it! Let's not forget the customer service and management side of things! It takes a TON of energy to make Mertailor operate on the daily basis.
While this may not mean much to some of you, this takes time, money, and a lot of energy. Not to mention, we truly care about all of our customers and the quality and service we can deliver to them.
Many of the the raw materials that we purchase to make our products are also manufactured in the United States, which also increases the bottom line of our products. However, there's much more control of quality this way.
When a company purchases from overseas factories, you can run into "fishy" situations such as improper sizing, coloring, wrong materials, unsafe materials, etc. And guess what the best part is? The company can be OUT THOUSANDS of HUNDREDS of dollars without any recourse to the factory that they purchased from. It's unfortunate that overseas factories have abused their labor forces to make a "quick buck" and spoiled so many individuals all over the world due to cheap labor and cheap "knock-off" products.
Sure, we could manufacture our products overseas and shutdown our manufacturing facilities to transform them into large stock warehouses, but that is not how we roll.
In a nutshell, we aren't a factory in China paying $0.50-$1.00 per hour (Average Chinese factory workers make $285 per month) to our employees or making them work in unfair or unrealistic conditions. There's plenty of other companies that you can purchase from who support this clause, if that's what you're looking for. There's a few that come to mind right away.... If you're looking for a cheap product, you might as well look elsewhere, because we aren't serving that.
While we understand budgets and circumstantial situations, if you truly want something badly enough, you can save up for it. However, we live in a "got-to-have-it-now" world, which we are all guilty of.
We are thankful that we are able to purchase American made and employ hard-working individuals right here in the Sunshine State. We hope you can appreciate that as well.
Mermaids = half human, half fish (At least this is what I've been taught in most fairytales and what I personally see these seductive creatures as). This means no "stiff" cardboard like flukes or fins. Instead the flukes of mermaid's tail should be flexible and translucent to an extent. This is why I decided to develop the Fantasea Fin and Spellbound Tail lines.
You don't see fish with "hard" flukes, do you? The last time you looked at a painting of a mermaid or mermaid related art, the fluke looked flowy, right? I mean, when's the last time you saw a fish swimming around with a piece of cardboard taped to its fluke! The Fantasea Fins and Spellbound Tails have proven themselves as perfectly realistic mermaid tail options for those who are looking for a realistic appearance and movement underwater. Let's not forget about their comfortably.
99.9% of those who try the Fantasea Fin or Spellbound Tails for the first time fall in love. While some individuals prefer fast speeds underwater, the Fantasea and Spellbound lines provide a beautiful realistic movement and appearance, which has a nice propulsion underwater.
Let's talk about the whole size queen thing... Yes, I know, many of you like "Big Flukes"! It's not the size that could but how you can make it work, right? Realistically, if you study a fish's anatomy, you will notice that the fins and flukes on a fish are generally smaller in size. Perhaps goldfish, butterfly koi, and beta fish have longer flowing fins, but these fish are generally swimming extremely slow, gliding through the water effortlessly. I for one feel that the Fantasea and Spellbound Tails have the best of both worlds!
I almost forgot! For those who like their "Big Flukes", these are the individuals who end up complaining about their feet hurting, stressing about having to drag the heavy brick around (Do you know how many tails I've personally had to carry for mermaids because their flukes are too big for them - LOL), and not being able to travel with it because its so BIG! These tails are perfect for your next mermaid adventure!
