This is her second collection and after the success of her debut collection “Women for Change,” she is working this time in collaboration with the Quaker mobile library and publishing house Hachette UK.
The collection will once again be produced with recycled and organic materials. Bethany is working closely with Hachette’s printing partners in Suffolk. Together they have taken the book waste to Italy where she has worked alongside the community to weave fabrics mixed with book waste to produce her collections.
In San Patrignano Italy she worked alongside the community to weave fabrics mixed from book waste, waste from San Patrignano and donated pre-production waste from mills in Italy. San Patrignano is an education and rehabilitation programme for people with drug dependency that teaches traditional Italian craft and champions a sense of community.
Stunning, minimalistic, premium denim. Outland denim source the finest, raw materials from around the world.
Not only that they offer employment and training to women who have suffered exploitation.
Add in the fact they have transparency in production to ensure sustainable jeans last a lifetime and there you have the 3 reasons we love this brand so much. Oh and the pieces are gorgeous!
Paynter unique Jackets are made in limited edition batches 300 per batch and 3 batches a year. Hand-numbered in the order, they are sold.
Once the batch is sold out there is a waiting list for the next, they really are they awesome.
Each jacket batch is based on an iconic style and re-made. Only the best materials are used, materials that last a lifetime. Supporting, of course, the aim to be a zero-landfill brand.
All jackets are made in an ethical workshop in Portugal by Sergio. The founders Huw and Becky have forged a personal relationship with him to ensure the manufacturing process is second to none.
The other really special thing about Paynter jackets is the community they are building. Customer feedback is installed into the next batch design process.
A brand with ears and eyes that really is making a difference.
We love finding new brands, especially ones that share similar values to us and are really trying to make a difference. Please let us know your faves too!
Love Annabel and Georgina x
