My Story

In 2019, I set out on a mission, to discover and progress stories of age old textiles passed down through families and cultures from across the world.

 

Since day one, I have been committed to sustainability through recycling textiles, and acting as the conduit of histories and narratives passed through me.

 

Fashion is often used to express and uplift personal identity. Like a coat of armor that makes you feel invincible. Dislike clothes valued for solely aesthetic character, Stan's armor substantiates meaning beneath the surface of material.

 

Each lost, dusty, aged textile that I excavate embodies a unique history; one that someone, long ago, was very proud of. A hand-made quilt made by great-grandmother for her great-granddaughters' wedding. A Japanese peasant farm worker that mended his harvest sacks for decades because he valued utility over loss.

 

I’ve stayed true to my beliefs to never compromise on the pillars I set forth, being patient when presented with opportunities of manufacturing and scaling, to never chase profits. Rather, to plant the roots of continuing on stories through fashion, with integrity. To translate something forgotten into a new form that can be appreciated today.

 

It feels great to be proud of what you wear. It feels even better to be a part of sharing beautiful stories of the past. That is my goal, and I hope you join me on this journey.
