Where is the company and production based? 

The brands headquarters and production are based in London.

To try to live consciously with less that’s why the brand offers artisanal garments. The concepts of responsibility and durability of clothing are our main source of inspiration behind the collections in order to consume fashion responsibly.

The strong need to live with fewer things that count, with a focus on deconstruction and removal of unnecessary opulence and excessive designs.

Since 2019, the production has been carried out internally to further reduce environmental impact, as well as ensuring consistency in quality and our commitment to a transparent supply chain. (reserved reproduction)
