From Somewhere

Description

Collections that are entirely made up of reclaimed pre-consumer waste materials, unwanted and discarded, done-with, but still perfectly useable, still beautiful, still functional. Each piece is individually cut from high quality reclaimed fabrics including cashmere, cotton, silk, jersey, tweeds and wovens. So the singular beauty of each garment lies in its uncompromising balance between a contemporary approach to fashion design and a poetic and ethical solution to borrowing from past treasures for our modern needs.
