We took great pride in hand selecting fabrics during our first trips to the market as a small group of volunteers back in 2009. Though much has changed since then, our desire to hand pick unique textiles has not.
The Transient Design is proud to offer linen, hemp, and hand dyed and woven textiles produced in less damaging ways than the heavy chemical and manufacturing processes ever present in our clothing industry.
First, the finest cotton is chosen to be minimally processed for optimal softness and feel. Then the cotton yarn is dyed in small vats over an open fire. Hand weaving the cotton on wooden looms in a rhythmic fashion, weavers are able to produce anywhere from 2 meters to 6 meters in a day.
The result of this process is a roll of fabric, 50-80 meters long - only long enough to produce a run of about 25-40 garments. This is perfect for creating a unique piece of wearable art, which is timelessly classic.
