Fall Winter 2019/20: Raw Materials and Production

We separate each collection in Basics, styles made from jersey fabrics which we source from Italy, Japan, Portugal and Spain, and our collection pieces, made from woven fabrics sourced in England, France and Italy.

We focus on finding the best suppliers and craftsmen for each fabric and style, which leads to our production being in Belgium, Italy, Japan and Portugal.

 

 

We work together with many different fabric suppliers and manufacturers depending on what we want to create, but they are all united by their dedication to quality and the way they treat their workers. Fair working conditions are a must for us.

Sustainability has become an important topic in fashion in the last years. We do our best to create a high quality, seasonless wardrobe that can be enjoyed for many years and adapt our patterns to create as little waste as possible in the creation of a garment.

We are always looking for innovative solutions to make our products with as little environmental impact as possible, working almost only with natural and recycled fibres.

Raw Colors

Every color in our collection is selected carefully by us and not simply chosen from the suppliers color card. We believe that co- lor forms the character of our clothes and is the key for timeless items that fit any occaison. Although it comes with extra work as every fabric takes the color different and some lab dips need to be redone and optimized to get the perfect tone for a collection, piece and fabric, we believe that it is worth it.

The color palate for our fall winter 2019 collection Wicklow is inspired by the nature Wicklow. The mountains, riverrs, plants, stones and  animals are the reason for the palate. Each color is somehow related to the nature there.
