Our Design Process

We make unique, beautiful, clothes in timeless designs and wonderful fabrics. Like many things, they will get better with time. Our designs are based on traditional workwear and costumes from the past, updated and adapted for today.

We use a miscellany of textiles hunted out from diverse sources: beautiful linens from Ireland; silks from local market stalls; traditional artisan pieces woven in Africa and Asia. We upcycle old textiles to add character and style. We choose natural fibres rich in colour and texture... and sometimes a touch of quirkiness. 

Each garment is crafted here on our farm in rural west Dorset.
