is a designer with a new vision for denim fabrication.

A graduate of both The Atelier Chardon Savard, Paris

With a clear artistic directive in mind and a loom in hand,

“I think artisan techniques are my biggest source of inspiration.”

designer, Faustine Steinmetz

She states simply that,

“it’s all recycled denim that I’ve re-felted.”  (quote from vogue.co.uk)

Yet achieving the finished piece is anything but simple in execution.

Rather, it is a method expertly thought out and intricately constructed:

“Each fabric is solely handwoven by one person

using one of our traditional hand looms. 

Each piece is meticulously made by hand,

with some pieces taking over a week to weave.”

Ms. Steinmetz’s approach to the design and fabrication

of denim-  a wardrobe staple –

is that of a true artisan:

hand-crafted, inventive, detailed and of singular beauty-

Masterful!
