We mainly manufacture in the Far East but sometimes we produce in-house at our West London studio when we can’t meet factory minimums. We made knitted patchwork skirts to complement our tops for our AW12 photoshoot, and were surprised and happy when Ships in Japan ordered them.

Although they are a seemingly simple style, a LOT of time and work goes into every skirt. Squares of knitted yarn swatches are cut, and positioned on a paper template to ensure we don’t have the same colour next to eachother, before our lovely studio assistant Riin machines them into perfect square patchwork panels. All this before hand heming, adding the lining, waistband and concealed zips…

Here are the finished skirts…and a sneaky peek of our AW12 collection (out this August)…
