Transparent Garment Production

The first collection in 2019 was designed in house in our south London studio. After the final garments were selected, samples were made at the Sophia Tailoring sample studio in East Sheen.

Some of the fabrics are sourced from fabric haberdashery and the rest sourced locally from Woolcrest Textiles in Hackney. The kolanut print was developed from a hand drawn illustration by Priscillia Okpan, this was digitally enhanced using Adobe illustrator and Design to create the final print tile. This was then printed by in sateen fabric.

Subsequent collections have been developed and produced in house at our south London studio in Kingston to manage orders during and after the COVID-19 lockdown. 

Fabric waste and scraps generated are reused to create smaller accessories such as scrunchies, scarves and berets. This is our way to reduce the amount of waste the brand generates. 

By 2021, all clothing were made in Lagos, Nigeria by Jaola Workshop. This is a woman owned small scale manufacturing studio in Nigeria. Collections are produced in limited size runs with materials sourced both in Nigeria and U.K.
