Welcome to Stabo; we are a designer/maker partnership. Ros started making blouses to sell at Portobello Market in 2001 and Ed joined in shortly afterwards. Since then we have had numerous adventures with Stabo travelling from New Zealand to Norfolk and many places in between but now we are firmly ensconced in Cambridgeshire.
Our focus is on accessories and clothing. We use a range of techniques and materials. Screen printing and leather recur throughout our work but we are always looking for new techniques and introducing different and interesting materials to our collection like our waxed cotton jackets or tweed scarves.
Stabo products have the imperfections and charm of the handmade. They are made with care and individuality rather than the uniformity of a production line. We print all our products with wooden screens we’ve made ourselves, have an eccentric collection of tools and machines and anything not made in our studio is made in the UK.
Similarly we try to source our materials in the UK; our scarves and ties are woven in the UK and the leather for our mens bags finished to our specification here. We want our customers to be proud to wear or use something original, useful and with a strong British heritage.
