Talk us through the creative process of getting the line up and running. How did you pick and test materials and cuts? Any details on the manufacturing process?

We call our design philosophy a “future classic” approach. We are looking back to learn from history, but also looking forward towards innovation. We aren’t “trads”, but often we find we learn as much from how things were done in the past as we do from the high tech “innovators”. We read history books and look at old clothing catalogs, and then we go off to fabric shows where mills and chemical companies show off their craziest new stuff.
