Inspired by culture and identity, memory and loss, Barbara Munsel develops artisanal garments and researches textiles from a strong narrative point of view. Her work is about layered fragility.

A conscious context, history or background can always be found in her textiles and clothing. She works with natural materials and repurposes old, antique and waste material revolting against the wasteful fashion world.

The label has a high sense of individuality in terms of craftsmanship and approach to sustainability.
