For the love of textiles

 

The products you will find here are the creations of an independent artisan, designing unique and limited edition handcrafted accessories, smoking caps, pillbox hats, cravats, bow ties, pocket squares and wallets, amongst other things. Slow fashion that is timeless, wearable art with a classic aesthetic that is pleasing and practical, using end-of-roll fabrics and recycled and vintage elements.

 Fashion should be an expression of personal feelings and beliefs 

Saving beautiful fabric scraps and re-inventing to give fresh life to those redundant items no longer loved, I design with my customers in mind. Free-thinkers want more than mass reproduced products, they search for something meaningful, a celebration of individuality. Moving away from the constraints of “in fashion” and developing a self-expressive style can only increase personal wellbeing, while contributing to society and the enviroment.

The craftsmanship of handmade is becoming increasingly valued as more and more come to appreciate the uniqueness, quality, and the artist’s personal energy imparted into each crafted piece.

Individuality makes you

TwiLd Capit Hog is all about textiles, carefully selected for handle, colour and design, including recycled and vintage supplies adding to the exclusivity. It’s about showcasing textures, patterns and the creative process of pairing different fibres together, to produce a characterful item that can be used and enjoyed. Depending on whether the fabrics incorporated in each design are swatches, remnants, re-purposed, or off the roll, dictates whether it will be a one-off design or a very limited run.

My creation …… your style

Hello my name is Julie and I am the artistic creator at TwiLd Capit Hog.
I’ve always been intrigued by textures, finishes and decorative methods of construction. Over the years the creative bug has led me to acquire skills through working in clothing/ fashion, millinery, and theatre. Wanting to use these skills while incorporating a feel good element by recycling, along with my love of vintage and travel, my venture in to a creative business began. Using redundant textiles alongside new, to producing that eye catching item that will add a distinct flair to someone’s attire fills me with joy, and inspires me on my creative journey.

Modern meets bygone

In all my designs, I try to incorporate a vintage feel but with a modern twist. They will appeal to those who love original design and handmade, while wanting to be part of a textiles life cycle and support the slow fashion movement. And those who are wanting to express a independent mind in their personal style. All my products are unisex, although based on classic mens styling. From design stage through production my focus is always on quality, style, and ease of use, handcrafted in West Yorkshire.
