Clothing is psychoactive. Through wearing garments, we can anchor ourselves into new states of being or dismantle current states of affairs.
Yashka Moore redresses the mind by offering up garments to shape the wearer’s inner architecture.
Ancient priestesses wove the world into being on their looms. Collection 001’s unstable half-garments allow their wearers to weave their own clothing onto their bodies. We believe identity should be made, not bought.
All our pieces are sustainably made in the UK using the finest fabrics.
