At Weavers Door we never like to let our favourites be known because we truly feel to have a favourite is the decision of the individual, to be decided by that individual for reasons of their own. With that being said, we do however get giddy over every collection we are lucky enough to present from our good friends at Folk. The London based label have a vision to create simple everyday clothing with subtle, innovative and more than often than not playful detailing.
The iconic furniture designer, Charles Earnes, once said “the details are not the details, they are the design”. This is a concise explanation of the design ethos behind Folk’s thoughts and design approach in both their clothing and footwear collections. By not trying to re-create the wheel in terms of style design and function, Folk instead focus on developing our own fabrics, trims and design details to create easy wearing garments with that little bit of something extra that sits Folk alongside but apart from its peers, letting the craft of the clothing do all the talking.
Over the past few seasons, Folk have been working hard at developing their own trims, whether its buckles, buttons, pop studs, hand dipped cords or leather straps. They are very passionate in their beliefs that it’s a very important part in what they do and what helps them make their clothes a little different from the rest. Our good friend Anton from Folk recently visited one the Folk suppliers, who as it happens is up our neck of woods, just outside of Liverpool and is a bit of a master craftsman at transforming the design ideas the Folk creative’s conjure up and turn them into reality. The images in this post are compliments to the Folk team and give you a flavour of what he does and the craftsmanship that goes into the Folk detailing they are widely known for in their clothing.
