timeless chic and attention to detail
More Than Just Figleaves clothing was created with is sewn locally by the designer in her Brooklyn Atelier. The Brand focuses on attention to detail , with hand finishes to produce garments with a designer aesthetic and focus on form and function.
Our appreciation for our world and its value is what led us to open the local Atelier, as each process of development and production is carefully thought out to provide exactly what our customer needs. That means no wastage. We use sustainable fabrics where we can, and use scraps in our designs, including our care labels!
Made in Brooklyn, is as close to the source as you can get. As a part of the emerging designer consciousness, we are targeting our locale to build a self supporting ecosystem . The entire process of design to manufacture , occurs within a few city blocks.
