Yarns: Our commitment in sourcing yarns that are surplus, using this reduces the negative impact on the environment. Made in London: Using a linear approach to the making process, this reduces our carbon footprint as well as focusing on the final garments quality, making no compromises to the finish. Reuse & Reinvent: Through our dedication to collecting every fibre that is produced in our making process, we leave nothing behind by implementing our scrap yarn into the accessories, celebrating the fibre in a new light.     EVENT HOST: LDC   LDC unite independent designers in hosting experience led concept stores, and create a resource sharing community.
