Our London Ateliers
Isabel Manns works with independent Ateliers in London as well as independent pattern makers and seamstresses who are dedicated to supporting her brand being sustainable and made in Britain.
Isabel wanted to work with suppliers that:
- Care about emerging brands
- Do not have large minimum order contracts
- Are sustainably conscious
- Have high quality sewing and construction knowledge
- Are looking for long-term partnership
This was a lot harder than she expected. Many factories had higher minimum orders than she wanted or did not understand how certain items could be manufactured to be reversible. Isabel knew it was possible though, as she had created a reversible dress herself.
The Ateliers she works with now produce some of the highest quality clothing for top luxury British brands, but although we are a very small label, they saw something in Isabel and decided to take a chance on us.
We visit the Ateliers on a regular basis and we pride ourselves in knowing everyone who is working on our clothing. During production we are constantly in contact with one another to answer any queries they may have.
We try to be as transparent as we can about our supply chain so if you would like to know more about how we work then please do not hesitate to contact us!
