Telling stories behind heritage textiles and their makers.
Narrative Made is a design studio exploring heritage textiles.
We tell stories of the crafts and makers – artisans from remote corners of the world – who weave together generations of culture, history, and technical skill in their craft. The motifs, hand stitches, weaving techniques, and natural dyes all reflect their unshakable identities; identities that they are proud of, and are worth celebrating.
Through the resource platform The Textile Atlas, we share knowledge and build a community around the love of heritage textiles.
We create fashion collections by partnering with artisan communities in the developing world and providing a fair channel for them to produce with inherited traditional skills.
We initiate social inclusion and capacity building projects through textile making, with the mission to empower marginalised and underprivileged people groups.
