It's been a long time since we started thinking about making our own collection.

Today, after monthes of hard labor, we get to the end.
For next season we will be proud to present you our own collection.
This collection will only be sold in our boutique or via our website.
The idea of producing our own collection is the result of our way of thinking and of the Supra-Quintessence Concept.
In our boutique, we only work with brands/products produce in Europe, Japan and the US (we try to avoid as much as possible the "Made in China" labels).
The Supra-Quintessence Collection is based on the same philosophy.
All the products we will offer  are produce in Europe.
The European textil industry was strong till the mid 80'.
From the early 90' Asia took over the European production.
Most of the European manufactures closed down or were relocalized in Asia.
Today, there's still a good "knowhow" in Europe but that will disappear if we won't use it !

We have decided to make our production in small work-shops all over Europe.
We have choosen each one of them for the quality of them work and for the field they were specialized in.
For an example : our shirts are produce by hand in a Napolitan work-shop where they have more than 60 years experience in that field.

Again, the philosophy is the same for the fabrics.
All the fabrics we use are produced in Europe (most of them in Italy and England), except for the denim that is produce in Japan !
We think that producing today in Europe is not an impossible mission.
Most of the companies producing in Asia just do it for the benefits they could get from producing cheaper.
But are they thinking about the human rights, the children labors and the ecology ?

Of course, when you have some "old" US or British labels that offer you "an heritage shirt" at 90€ you find that great.
But is it still so great when we know that this same shirt was produced in China for a cost of 14$FOB and that the manufacture who have produced it doesn't care at all about children labors and ecology ???

So that's the reason why we decided to offer a collection made with the best fabrics we can find, in the best European work-shops.
As there's no agents or reps in between us and the manufactures, the prices are going to be as low as an asian products but with a Great Quality !
Here's some prototypes we are just finishing :

Unstructured Jacket made in Belgium from British Wool Fabric.

 Unstructured Railroad Denim Jacket made in Belgium from Japanese Denim and bakelite buttons.

Washed Chambray Scarf made in Belgium from Japanese Selvage Fabric.
