The Maker Collection
The Maker Core Collection is the first in-house capsule collection of The Maker. We work with a Finnish seamstress to produce The Maker Core Collection. It was important for us to work in a localised area: our entire production chain of the garments is in Europe to the fullest extent possible; from the spinning to weaving and knitting of the fabric to the finished piece of clothing. Hence, why we have prioritised fibres that grow in Europe; hemp, flax and trees. This has been important to us for a variety of reasons; in order to lower the carbon footprint of shipping, to boost local industries that are endangered because of competition from low-cost countries and to be able to visit our makers in person to approve that their ethical standards match ours. We wanted to support the heritage linen industry in Ireland and Belgium, the fabric mills of northern England, the textile industry of Italy and the skilled seamstresses in Finland.
