Slow Wearing Well is about you and me, what and how, we choose and use, love and care for the things we wear.
It is a celebration of people and their influences - who share philosophies and virtues on material value and heirloom, who are committed to their work and craft, and are passionate about presenting products of enduring quality.
It is about the wellbeing of our clothing and accessories. It’s about knowing your self and your stuff. We are talking about making good decisions for our material comforts and dress confidence. We are shining a bright light on us and our qualities, on you and your style.
