To inspire all who are interested to (re-)discover the joy of a wardrobe that contains pieces they love to:
- wear, by offering a coordinated selection of timeless pieces
- care for, by offering information and help that results in choosing quality over quantity and mending over replacing
- play with, by offering inspiration and ideas on how to combine and integrate new pieces with existing ones
What then constitutes The Slow Wardrobe?
The Slow Wardrobe comprises a YouTube channel, a website and a production Studio, all created and maintained by the founder (Linda).
|The YouTube channel||The Website||The Studio|
|With a new episode every other week, The Slow Wardrobe presents new products, provides inspiration around styling and integration of new designs and colours into your wardrobe, discusses ways to mend and care for your wardrobe and shares Linda's personal knitting journey.||
||Since January 2014, The Slow Wardrobe operates from a multi-functional Studio in the village of Grayshott, on the Surrey/Hampshire border.
It includes a dedicated workroom for Andrea (who turns Linda's Layercake design ideas into garments in multiple sizes/lengths). Working together almost daily combined with our experience dressing and serving customers since before the turn of the century allows us to offer a bespoke sizing service (which helps Layercake achieve true size inclusivity).
Who then are the main contributors to The Slow Wardrobe?
Linda owns the business, drives its creative direction and does everything it needs to run day to day. Andrea spends a considerable part of her working week sewing Layercakes, yet operates as a separate company and not involved with day to day operations. The same goes for Sharon, the owner of fivemoons Yarns, who dyes yarns for The Slow Wardrobe but also runs her own business. This set up allows us maximum flexibility and independence, boosting creativity.
When possible, we combine stands at woolly shows where you may find Linda, Andrea, Sharon and sometimes Zoë, another separate company owner (crochet pattern designer and tech editor) all pulling together and selling our wares.
