A new designer – Faustine Steinmetz – creates all fabrics by hand woven process using traditional handlooms in their East London studio. Not only that , they spin, dye and weave all their fabrics. Iconic pieces are reproduced and all by hand!.
Each fabric is solely hand woven by one person using one of their traditional handlooms.Each piece is meticulously made by hand, with some pieces taking over a week to weave.
Faustine has quickly built a reputation for hand woven pieces but for SS15 it’s her thought out take on how a girl should be wearing jeans that’s really drawing attention.
How it is done ..
All the yarns are made from recycled denim . The designer unravels all the old denim and turns them into yarns and used traditional pleating and hand stitching techniques for making the jeans.Faustine, who is a Central Saint Martins graudate, also teamed up with jewellery label Niomo for artisinal extras to the collection. The fabrics are unique and undenim like except that they use indigo. Jeans and jackets appear in distressed frays of indigo webs, 3D puckering effects and twisted and turned and web like structures renders many fabrics being see- through hanging structures.
For most denim lovers, the looks might be totally out of blue and unexepected , but that is where the fun lies !
