Conscious experiments with fabrics through hand-weaved patterns and zero waste techniques.

On our minds is Martina Spetlova, one of the exciting new designers to be stocked by Selfridges at the prestigious London department store’s box fresh Designer Studio. With a background in chemistry, the Czech-born designer gained a master’s at Central Saint Martins and founded her namesake label in 2011. Shaped by her scientific past, Spetlova’s designs could be described as conscious experiments with fabrics through hand-weaved patterns and zero waste techniques. With a special affection to leather, she has turned to by-product materials tanned at the world’s most environmentally friendly tannery, and to female refugee artisans in The Netherlands for the production of her woven leather fabrics.
