The next two talks showed us the importance of the ‘slow process’ in manufacturing.
STORY mfg. was born out of a desire for a more authentic, fulfilling and kind approach to fashion — one that wouldn’t involve a trade-off between aesthetic and sustainability. Our ‘stories’ celebrate the human and technological effort that has gone into making each piece. We track down master craftspeople in the most rural of places, and visit every location our materials are made – not only to check on the quality of the products and meet the makers – but to photograph and share the adventure.
The East London Liquor Company were our final visitors who introduced us to their range of slow gins and vodkas.
