Denim Detail

29th January 2014

Hand crafted and re considered design is something that we all strive for in our design language, but has been lost in favour of fast and furious in fashion terms, but taking the iconic pair of denim jeans and re working and reinterpreting in their East London studio Faustine Steinmetz spin, dye and weave their own fabrics for a new take on the staple denim jeans.

Keeping sourcing to the UK they consider iconic pieces - the kind that we all take for granted - those over looked but perfect objects and push the boundaries of what they can be.

Always working around the idea of pieces rather than themes - they took the iconic 501 denim jeans and re made then from scratch re making and re weaving every part including creating unique yarns with a unique texture and hand.

Producing 5 different yarns for their denim they created one that looks like it has just been pulled up from the sea and another which is completely embroidered.

Textural and engaging their materiality is beautiful and the sheer level of time and craftsmanship that has gone into them only adds to their beauty,
