Wear it for years and still feel like you're wearing for the first time — here's how
Clothes are being thrown away as quickly as new ones are being added to the racks. Every. Single. Day.
As textile designers who not only study fabric extensively but form a deep connection with our own hands while we we cut and print manually then piece together using traditional construction techniques, we find this reality unsettling.
The way we work takes more time but we use less resources and generate less waste while creating something that will last more years. We started Fictive Fingers with making pouches and totes that you only need to buy once then carry over and over before finally releasing the Linen Wrap in 2015. We wanted to be sure a wearable piece, made by our hands, isn’t another short-lived clothing destined for the landfill.
You'd wear it for years and still feel like you’re wearing for the first time.
We dedicate our work to linen, one of the oldest fabric in the world that embodies the values close to our hearts - hardworking and respectful of the environment. You’ll get what we mean when you read our e-book What They’re Not Telling You About Your Clothes.
In fact, you’ll be on your way to be discerning about the kind of fabric that’s good for you (not just linen) and spotting signs of long-lasting quality so you can live in your clothes for years, not weeks. You’ll find joy in taking care of them and slowly create a functional wardrobe you love that simplify your life every day. These breakthroughs our e-book readers have experienced, you can have them too.
Let’s be honest, it doesn’t happen overnight. But just as we’ve supported each other on this journey as sisters, we’re here with you every step of the way.
