With summer months ahead, here are 3 labels to refresh your closet in a responsible way.

Celebrating Craftsmanship with CAWLEY

Hannah Cawley founded her label in 2017, with the objective to create everyday clothes celebrating quality craftsmanship and British manufacturing.

CAWLEY’s garments are designed to be lasting, timeless and functional. The natural materials – mostly cotton and linens – are sourced from traditional mills in England, Ireland and Portugal, and each piece is individually hand cut and made in London.

Creating with Local Communities with BLOKE

Founded in 2015 by Faith Oluwajimi, BLOKE is a genderless artisanal label, enveloped with an undertone of spiritual consciousness.

Devoted to sustainability and ethically made garments, BLOKE wants to preserve long established local artisanal practices, using locally sourced materials and engaging with a small community of textile artists, knitters artisans and design groups in Nigeria.

Preserving Heritage with BIELO

Josep Puig Romeu, the founder of BIELO, is dedicated to continuing his family’s manufacturing heritage with his own label.

Located in La LLacuna, a small town a one-hour drive from Barcelona, the Puig Romeu family atelier has been producing knitwear since the eighties; with an unexpected encounter with Japanese craftsmanship that led them to become a one-of-a-kind manufacturer by combining western and eastern techniques.

BIELO blends Josep’s refreshing look on fashion with his family’s knowledge of high quality fabrics and manufacturing, resulting in pieces marked by distinctive, playful colour combinations and pattern experimentations with luxurious knits.
