Textile Love: Ace & Jig Spring/Summer

The new Ace & Jig spring/summer pieces came in yesterday!  This line is all about the fabric.  
Each season, they work hand in hand with textile specialists in India to create 3-4 yarn-dye woven fabrics and then make a handful of simple silhouettes from them.  No denim, no shoes, no tee shirts. Just a few effortless piece that allow the fabric to speak for itself.   

Each piece is made by hand in India on an ancient hand loom.   The designers are often on site where they can work with the weavers one on one. Equally important, they share the same morals and values while practicing the holistic kaizen philosophy of continuing to improve. Not only do they provide free childcare, but they also use reclaimed water to grow organic produce for their employees.
The end result are accessible clothes that are not overstyled, pieces that you keep forever and love.  Each silhouette hopes to be quintessential pieces that live and travel with you.
