Kitty Ferreira

Kitty Ferreira is a new ethical and sustainable boutique brand using upcycled fabrics and silks eco-dyed by hand with pomegranate and onion skins, producing a beautifully elegant yet edgy print.

Due to the nature of the dying process, each piece made from these silks varies slightly to the next, offering real exclusivity and individuality to every wearer. To further ensure your individuality remains intact, we produce in limited edition numbers.

Each piece is lovingly designed, sampled and produced in this great city, London, offering retailers the opportunity to buy in very small quantities with very short lead times from a low carbon footprint brand.

We also support 'slow fashion' by offering complimentary styles each month, to keep your customers coming back for more and to maximise your sale through rate.

She, the customer, is quietly confident, conscientious and a positive force amongst her peers. She needs a working wardrobe that reflects this; that infuses practicality, high end finishing with sustainable practices. She supports UK manufacturing and delights in seeing beauty inside as well as out- all our pieces are either French seamed or bound throughout. She requires versatility to take her from boardroom to bar; details that quietly differentiate her from the rest; exquisite pieces that quietly asserts her presence with a smile.

We're excited to bring to you this first collection for SS14 and look forward to working with you for AW14.
