WHY DO WE DO WHAT WE DO?
THE SHORT ANSWER: WE DO IT ALL FOR THE LOVE OF MAKING THINGS FROM FABRIC
It is the marriage of passion, a spirit of adventure and most likely a small amount of madness that we put every part of ourselves into what we do. And after 12 years of living in France and chipping away at our dream, we have become confident and skilled makers. We ARE hand-printers, hand dyers, pattern drafters, couturiers and designers.
We absolutely love what we do!
AT THE HEART OF WHAT WE DO
There is a deep satisfaction within all of us who work here at the Atelier for getting our work right. For working really hard, practicing over and over, and learning and refining until we become an expert at that thing. This is what drives us. We are dedicated to producing exceptional, expertly made textile items that we hope will one day, become modern day heirlooms.
THE IMPACT OF TEXTILES ON THE ENVIRONMENT
HOW MANY THINGS YOU BUY HAS MORE IMPACT THAN WHAT THOSE THINGS ARE
All textiles are not environmentally friendly. Some fare better than others but the most effective way is to choose textile items that will last longer. A well crafted item made with quality fabric and components will outlast an inferior equivalent. Items created to be modern heirlooms will be passed on and their environmental impact is one-off over multiple generations
MADE IN FRANCE
Flax fields surround our tiny village in the summer and the tradition and expertise of turning it into fabric lays all around our region in the form of combing and carding workshops, spinners and weaving mills. Being here has brought a new dimension to our work and how we honour the tradition of making linen.
A NEW WEBSITE
We are makers and spend as much time as we can making (well, we garden and cook a lot too but shh..) and as a consequence, we haven’t found the time to update our website in a long, long time. But finally, we’ve done it, a new site that we are sure will constantly be tweaked and adjusted but, that’s just how we are…
Introducing CUCINA RUSTICA authentic 100% french linen kitchen and dining textiles
Here at Atelier Kathryn Sanderson, we have a deep love and adoration for linen. In fact, we moved here, to northern France, to be a part of the famed Flax belt of western Europe and for the past ten years we have been mastering our craft …
We have a little secret. People know us primarily for making luxury home products from Belgian and French linen. But over the years, we have been working hard, developing our skills as bespoke shirt makers. With our excellent pattern drafting skills and well noted construction skills, we have decided to offer bespoke shirts as a service.
We are very excited to announce that we will be offering the complete range of over 700 exquisite Canclini fabrics as part of our bespoke shirt service. Canclini are one of Italy’s finest shirting textile manufacturers and have an incredible collection of textiles ranging…
