To create exceptional clothing that lasts, we employ an uncompromising design process that considers all aspects of a garment’s life.
First of all, our design director is also our master pattern maker (a rare fashion-industry occurrence in itself). After spending over a decade studying fit, she has teased out common concerns and skillfully addressed them all.
A crucial step is designing through a classic technique called draping. Draping is the physical process of creating a pattern three dimensionally. By forming cloth around a dress form, our pattern maker is working physically with the fabric. This is how we ensure a better fit and balance, and craft pieces that can accommodate a variety of body types.
The end result is a garment that provides not only easy comfort, but fit versatility as well. Many include adjustable waists and neck drops, not to mention, a slight give in fabrics and flattering seam placement.
Last, but certainly not least, are our fabrics. We carefully source the highest-quality fabrics from mills across the globe. They must be made of good staple fibers; woven to not only look and feel amazing, but to also perform. Once we’re satisfied, we then wash-and-shrinkage test our fabrics.
In other words, KILN is crafted to fit well from conception to closet.
