A post by @jillematthews | @suttonandgrove on Last Layer
‘Bali has become like a second home to Luke and I, having spent just over 4 months in total living there in 2018. We’ve made some great friends and one in particular who has inspired me to write this blog post all about her fashion brand Last Layer AND her co-founded ethical manufacturing house Not a Stitch Up. I have to admit, most of her pieces I own I wore unashamedly for days on end, especially the Slip Suit.’
Last Layer founded by my friend Zeph Jackson is a fashion and accessories brand made up of a collection of talented artisans, innovators, and designers. Last Layer creates a space and a demand for artisan-made apparel and shares consciously made apparel and up cycled bags. There are no seasonal collections made at Last Layer as the brand believes overproduction and overconsumption are two main issues that are leading to environmental downfalls. Collections are created organically and feature consciously made apparel.
THE ‘NATURAL APPAREL COLLECTION’
The ‘Natural Apparel Collection’ is made in-house at Last Layer’s ethical manufacturing production house in Canggu, Bali (which I had the privilege of visiting when we were living there). Included with her beautiful effortless fashion pieces, Zeph also sells upcycled bags and accessories from recycled materials found in Sri Lanka. SHOP HERE to check out some of these beautiful well-made pieces I am featuring.
NOT A STITCH UP | Ethical Manufacturing House
Last Layer‘s founder, Zepha Jackson opened up an ethical manufacturing production house called ‘Not A Stick Up’ in Canggu, Bali, Indonesia. Both Zeph and her Not A Stitch Up business partner, Em Gurr work in the studio/office and oversee every single stitch and all production. They work closely with their team of talented artisans and create a lovely team atmosphere. The full process of production is transparent showcasing a conscious supply chain.
