Slow Fashion

Ethical - Ecological - Lasting Style

Slow Fashion = High Quality + Clean Environment + Fairness for Consumers & Producers

I handcraft one of a kind textiles and wearable pieces from regional fiber, connecting the wearer to the biological context of their wardrobe.

Craftsmanship has suffered as people consume in a throwaway mindset. My hope as a designer is that I can contribute to bringing a level of craftsmanship to the apparel industry, that has been lost along the way in mass culture. This requires a change in the way we design; Creating a more vertically integrated design process.
