We are delighted to bring this beautiful publication by hand sewing advocate, Louisa Owen Sonstroem, to the UK.
Hand sewing clothing can be a radical act of slow fashion. Reclaim the democratic, accessible, ancient power of sewing that needs no machine.
Our hands have the power to make the clothes in which we live.
For those seeking a slower, gentler way to make clothes, this book will serve as a guide to sewing clothing by hand — without use of a sewing machine.
Learn the techniques needed to stitch sturdy, modern adult clothing by hand. Ponder the bigger picture with several contextual essays, and then settle in for storytime, as you read a set of stories about hand-sewn clothes.
We sell beautiful and useful things for makers. Our products are sourced with care and consideration for those who make them and we work with smaller companies and individuals whose sourcing and manufacturing process are transparent.
We hope to be an inclusive company and strive to create an environment that is welcoming and embraces diversity, both with our online presence, the makers we represent, our physical pop-ups events and our collaborations.
We welcome suggestions about how we can improve our approach.
We donate monthly to theses two amazing charities:
* Labour Behind the Label
* The Runnymede Trust.
