"I am a craftsman by trade. My medium: dirt stained remnants of tattered, worn textiles, ingrained with stories of hand woven fibers. There is history awaiting discovery, buried in the deepest corners of the world. A medium that allows me to peer into faraway culture, ritual, religion, and family heritage. I live in the perpetual search for such things. Stories relayed from the past; translated through centuries. The goal of Stan is to re-contextualize stories into clothing, and allow long lost memories to live on."
-Tristan Detwiler, Founder/Designer
