Craftsmanship and Heritage

Read More

Working towards a way of creating fashion that is better for people and the environment is not only about looking forward to technological advancements and new ideas. It is also about looking back to a traditional, smaller scale means of garment manufacture that has always had a much lower impact than the hyper-globalised, mass production and consumption model of today.

 

At Vivienne Westwood, we have long championed craftsmanship and heritage. Traditional British textiles and Savile Row tailoring traditions have informed and influenced our collections since the 1980s. We have always partnered with local industries and artisans in the UK, as well as Europe, India and Africa.

 

HOW WE SUPPORT ARTISANS AND SMALL HERITAGE BRANDS

 

Today, we are proud to say that we still work with some small, highly skilled independent businesses. Together, over the last 30 years, we have created some of our best-known products that are recognised globally as a sign of durable quality and style, and that support the preservation of traditional skills.

Through our work with artisans and small heritage brands we aim to both utilise more environmentally sustainable forms of production, and to help support and sustain traditional skilled jobs and the communities around them.
