Silk & Sawdust
Silk & Sawdust is a London based label with a unique approach to fashion.
The idea is really quite simple. We’ve all seen and cooed over the frocks of yesteryear, and wanted to bring the glamour of the old film stars to our own wardrobes, and yet finding vintage clothes that fit, in good condition and that work for everyday isn’t always plain sailing.
Silk & Sawdust recreates some of the best of vintage design from the last century in the stunning fabrics available today. The pieces are lovingly hand tailored, by delightful and highly skilled dressmakers in Thailand, and they are beautifully cut to fit the figures today.
Inspiration comes from vintage patterns, old fashion books and original vintage dresses, coats and tops. And fabric is sourced from far and wide: London, Paris, Turkey, Thailand, to name but a few.
Each design is only available in limited numbers, giving customers that same sense of discovery and exclusivity that is experienced when you discover a vintage gem. There’s little risk of running into someone else in the same Silk & Sawdust dress.
Thanks for looking. And if you find something you love, give us a twirl!
