The Women's Creative Collection.

We make jeans for the creative community. This is our passion, it is what gets us up in the morning. To come in each day and make for the makers and mavericks of the world is a privilege.

To know that the love and craftsmanship that we put into making our jeans is recognised and appreciated by people who put an equal amount of love in their work, keeps us smiling all day long. 

So we thought we’d celebrate some of the makers in our creative community with our Creative Collection. Starting with four great jeans for four talented women. 

This project came about because we wanted to spread a little love and champion and promote the work of our customers. So we put out an instagram post asking our community to introduce us to some of their favourite female makers.

Over 800 names were suggested. We chose four women to feature in our first Creative Collection series. From today each maker will doing a daily Instagram takeover, so you can find out more about them and what they create. This is just the start.

We will be showcasing some of the other makers in other campaigns and in our Makers and Mavericks and Do One Thing Well lists at the end of the year. 

As always we are grateful for your support and we are honoured to be able to give you a little bit of support back.

The Makers: 

Sophie Sellu.

Sophie is a woodworker and founder of Grain and Knot. She creates functional objects for the kitchen and home from reclaimed and sustainably sourced timber in her home studio in South London.

She uses natural materials,  creating a unique range of brushes, vases, utensils and chopping boards. Sophie's work sells out quickly so keep an eye on her online shop for updates of new product launches.

Sophie wears the Peggy. 

The Peggy Orginal Selvedge. 

A relaxed fit, high-waist jean. It has a  loose-fit leg that tapers gradually from the top of the thigh to the hem. The back yoke is not as deep as our other fits so the denim falls looser over the bottom. Made from our hardworking selvedge that will age beautifully over time. 

The waist sits a few centimeters above the hip bone on your natural waistline. It has been constructed to minimize gaping.

Ellie Evelyn Orrell.

Ellie is wearing The Edith.

The Edith. 

The Edith is a flattering high-waisted wide-leg-crop jean.

They sit at just the perfect place on the waistline. The waistband has been constructed to minimise gaping.

A wide straight loose-fitting leg that finishes with a true crop that ends halfway down the calf.

The Aurelia - Wide Leg.

A mid-rise jean with a straight, wide-leg.

This is the widest hem we have ever done.

The darts, known as the punctuation marks of the dressmaker's trade, give a flattering fit to the back of the jean and replace the yoke which is typically used in jean construction.  

In the office we wear ours rolled up and cropped, showing off the white-line selvedge detailing. 

There are big pockets on the back and deep ones on the front. So yeah, women's pockets you can actually use.
