Lets start from Back Stage
As they say about them
Each fabric is solely handwoven by one person using one of our traditional hand looms.
Each piece is meticulously made by hand, with some pieces taking over a week to weave.
Steinmetz’ enthusiasm for handcrafted garments that embody a true spirit of luxury hasn’t waned. Riffs off of denim is still Steinmetz’s thing and she explores techniques like laminated thread, hand pleated Japanese shibori as well as repurposing second hand denim and reweaving into a new dishevelled state. From yarn to weave to cut – Steinmetz emphasises the UK-grown small scale production of her garments. Those are important take away points but she need not ram it down your throat. The clothes sell themselves because they look…. so cool! Sometimes, clothes don’t need eloquent descriptions.
