We’re dedicated to sustainable fashion working exclusively with vintage fabrics & end-of-roll remnants which would otherwise find their way to landfill. This also means that when you buy a new item of clothing you are adding another chapter to the story of each beautiful cloth. Every item is handmade by our all-female team in our Brighton studio.

We do what we do because handmade is better: it’s higher quality, allows for more creativity and champions local skills & talent. All this whilst helping to reduce fabric waste in the UK fashion industry.
