Hand & Lock Lates: The Stitch Archive
Hand & Lock x The Stitch Archive Thursday 9th March 2023
Location: Hand & Lock Studio, 86 Margaret Street, London, W1W 8TE
The Stitch Archive is a collaborative project between two textile designers, with a passion for celebrating and amplifying contemporary, constructed and decorative textiles. The collectors have an inclination towards bright colour, sumptuous texture, innovative materials and graphic patterns.
The varied samples collated in the archive have been collected over the years, selected or created for their quirks or points of difference from ‘usual’ textiles. As a result, the archive is a reflection of this ‘more-is-more’ aesthetic, for our clients to revel in.
We are opening our Studio for one exclusive evening where you will be able to view the stunning textile samples from The Stitch Archive and our Hand & Lock Archive. Designed to give you a rare insight into the world of industry textile practice, this event is designed to give you a unique perspective on the world of embroidery and knit and will offer inspiration for any textile projects you will be working on.
