We came across Sophie by chance when she came into our shop and we're glad she did.
In these days of fast fashion and throwaway culture, Sophie shows there's an alternative.
Workwear made to last in Britain
Trained as a tailor, Sophie has taken the utilitarianism of Japanese heritage workwear and employed techniques and influences drawn from British tailoring and sportswear. The result is a garment of paired back style and total practicality.
All garments are created with movement for practical work in mind. Eaach wearer’s journey and purpose may vary, the need for function, comfort and response remains constant.
Ergonomically designed to liberate motion, Sophie creates clothing to play in, work in and to live in.

Ethically produced, using only 100% natural cloth, all garments are created to endure. The products are designed to come to life through wear, through repair and eventually through bequeathment to others. These are to be storied garments; pieces that proudly show their heritage and use, pieces that evolve with you, the wearer.
