BRAND PROFILE
Loom Loop was founded by Polly and Andy. One is a dreamer the other a perfectionist, it was a chance encounter with a 300-year-old heritage fabric, a low-rent studio space in Central and with a little luck Loom Loop was born in 2014 in PMQ, Soho HK. When the designers saw the heritage fabric “Canton silk”, they were bowled over by the artisan techniques employed to dye the silk using a plant-based dye, river mud and solar power. They saw the potential of this forgotten fabric, and were driven to design high-quality clothes that reflects its true value. The brand DNA has strong emphases on sustainable fashion and conservation of traditional craftsmanship. Their core concept is to retell stories of the past in the present. The past treasures are conserved and continued into the future with their contemporary design and commitment in preservation of our heritage.
