RHLS, a modern way to create handmade clothes. from brooklin.

they specialize in super quality, handmade apparel, made by the designers r.mackswell sherman, and sarah jones in redhook, brooklyn. their studio sits sea side, complete with a glimmering view of the statue of liberty, right across the water providing them with hope.

theye like to keep it small, ethical and homegrown. no outsourcing their labor overseas or even out of state (its all done under one roof). they use salvaged materials, dead stock from manufacturers, or vintage sweatshirts, and vintage cotton products as their source fabric.

they are part of a wonderful business model called parachute, (a new project by the founder of theye are exploring ways to help cottage industry pioneers take their business to the next level and compete with mainstream fashion/production industry by providing subsidies and educational opportunities. by supporting RHLS your are supporting the future of handmade industry.

to buy their own stuff, go on etsy, of course!
