Founded in 2016 by British Vogue stylist, Pippa Holt, her eponymous line of kaftans and jumpsuits celebrate a love of indigenous textiles, far-flung travel and beautiful, original holiday attire.
For Resort '20 Pippa Holt has created a limited edition range of jumpsuits. Collaborating with artisans and working with their traditional hand woven cloth, each piece is cut and made in a sustainable maker’s studio. The artisanal cotton takes 6 weeks to weave by hand, while the construction of the jumpsuit takes one and a half days. No two are the same and are couture pieces. In the same vein as the kaftans, the jumpsuits are practicable, uplifting and can be worn anywhere.
The fabric for Jumpsuit No.4 was woven by hand on a back-strap loom by two artisans, both named Juana, in black cotton with contrasting white motifs.
It takes each artisan over one month to make a jumpsuit and, due to the way they are meticulously hand-crafted, no two are the same. Naturally dyed cotton thread is woven into cloth using a back-strap loom, an ancient weaving technique that has been used for generations.
