Our Classic Collection is everything you’d come to expect from your daily basics: timeless, elegantly simple, and crafted to endure. And not only with you, but also here with us, meaning, they don’t disappear. The pieces in our classic collection will remain available indefinitely, so you can always find that staple piece again and again. Colors and fabrics might change or be added to, but that shirt you love isn’t going anywhere.
If we had to put our design style into a single sentence, we’d describe it like this: We make clothing inspired by pieces from the past, with the finest materials available today and designed for women who care about not only how their clothing fits, but how it’s made.
But we’ve found that sometimes, we stumble upon (or hunt down crazily) some fabric or idea so special, so rare, that only a few of them could ever exist. We used to let this scare us off, because well, making just a few of something isn’t the best business model, but we just can’t help ourselves. We think some things deserve to to be made, even if its just a handful of them. It is with that in mind that we give you our Heritage Collection.
Heritage because it used to be, all clothing was made in runs of one. Then a few at a time became possible, then thousands. But something got lost along the way. We’re excited that this collection is helping us bring back not only heritage designs, but heritage ways of making.
In Eight + Sand Heritage you’ll find production runs of no more than a handful or so, pieces made with exquisite textiles sourced from and available to us only in the most petite volumes. It’s a place for us to celebrate the tradition and history that we come from and honor and to share that history with you. Hope to see you out on the road.
We started Eight + Sand as an homage to the pleasure and importance of the well-made object. But let’s be honest, we can’t make EVERYTHING we want or need, nor would we want to. One of our greatest joys is in finding like-minded souls out there to share the experience of designing, making, and using truly great objects.
The Fellows Collection is all about those relationships, bringing together the makers and objects that we love most, and celebrating the fellow travelers we share this journey with. We hope you enjoy their work as much as we do.
