Nadia Piechestein from TLZ Movement clothes
Nadia Piechestein is a London based, sustainable, Fashion Designer. She is reimagining traditional mending to create contemporary fine fashion that challenges longevity and creativity.
Proudly from Argentina, she launched one of the first ethical brands there, called TLZ Movement Clothes. Her sustainable approach combines slow fashion techniques with zero-stock and zero-waste production. Her latest collection brings together the most exquisite embroidery combined with hand woven fabrics, in collaboration with local makers. She has recently dropped the ‘iron-on patches’, designed with a mission to stop clothes from being wasted. They are a self made invention which has been produced with ethically conscious cotton farmers in India. Just with an iron you can incorporate the most beautiful textiles in any shape you want. Made with hand woven khadi cotton, in collaboration with Khadi London CIC.
Her work has been exhibited at London Fashion Week 2022, The Lab E20 and Fashion District Hub during the pre launch of The Reclaimery platform. She also continues to exhibit every year at The Festival of Natural Fibres and London Craft Week.
Reworking services, workshops and products are available all year long.
Morgan Amber is a Designer, Maker, Teacher and Chelsea College of Arts graduate. She celebrates colour and pattern, through a contemporary take on Indian woodblock printing. She aims to promote a gentle approach to design and only use fabrics and dyes that are ethically sourced. She designs each block herself and then they are hand carved in Sanganer. Her textiles are either hand printed in her studio by Morgan herself, or produced by talented artisans in India. Morgan spent six weeks in Jaipur, working for a social enterprise and helped source ethical textiles alongside learning the process of printing and natural dyeing. She has made life long connections and is particularly interested in supporting and nurturing the artisan way of life.
You can meet her face to face through her engaging printing workshops and work with specialist blocks and materials sourced from Jaipur. She aims to pass on her knowledge with others and celebrate beautiful Indian textiles techniques.
