SSEAMS Magazine Special issue 004 is ready to download below. In this issue, we reflect on the year that is 2022. And, what a year it has been so far! If we gave it a theme, it would be, CHAOS! Our age old industry is officially being put through the wringer dealing with its environmental impact, rising raw material costs, cracks in the supply chain and an exceptionally busy brand marketplace, combined with a complex retail space.
The SSEAMS team has worked across all corners of product creation but one that has got our attention is manufacturing. The relationship between brand, maker and mill is closer than ever before and the test of successful innovation requires this 3-pronged collaborative attack! A topic close to our hearts is quality and durability, and how we can work together to achieve the finest durable garments to last the test of time?
Enter centre stage, Alexander Manufacturing, a tailoring and handmade coat maker, based in North Lanarkshire, Scotland. A jewel set in central Scotland with a team spanning 50 years of coat making and producers for numerous luxury British and international labels. We took the cameras in and captured a day in the life of the factory. Come on in and take a look behind the scenes to see who really makes the clothes you wear… Out now!
