Introducing PDF Sewing Patterns: The Tie Dress

From now on I will start to release my designs as PDF sewing patterns starting with the Tie Dress. This means you can now sew your own Charlotte Kan design. Here is how it works: buy and download the PDF pattern - print and tape the pattern pieces - cut your fabric and sew your dress - enjoy your home made Charlotte Kan design.

Charlotte Kan x Granny's Finest

Granny's Finest is a foundation that lets designers and Grannies collaborate to create handmade accessories. The grannies knit and crochet with beautiful and soft yarns and in return for their craftsmanship a weekly handwork club and outings are organized. If you buy one of the designs you get to personally thank the granny's that knit your beanie, scarf or cowl by sending them a card.

What I like about this concept is that it has a social goal. They want to contribute to the well-being of our senior citizens by letting them make, learn and work together with designers on quality products. View and shop the collection here

Made to order with love

Behind the scenes at ethical fashion brand

From now on all orders you make in the web shop will be made to order and shipped within 5 to 10 business days after payment.

Why the change? By only making that what you want to wear allows me to use the fabrics and my time more efficiently. It frees up my time for future plans, new designs and a more focused work routine...ok, and an occasional coffee with friends.

If you want instant gratification and shop offline? Have a look at my stockist Groos in Rotterdam, make an appointment to visit the studio and subscribe to the newsletter to get event invites.
