Handmade yoga wear - tailored to your unique body and shape, using your measurements. Incorporating hand stitching for a unique style, designed to last.
When I lived on a little remote Scottish island in the Inner Hebrides we were confronted with many power cuts.
The winter evenings were dark and long and I had to be creative, working independent from electrical devices.
So I started sewing by hand, creating garments from scratch and i can c u was born.
I could never find clothes that fit on the High Street so creating them was the solution.
Being an artist and yoga teacher I spend a lot of time studying the human body and this is honoured in my work.
Your garment is created to your unique body measurements so it will fit you.
I resource the organic cotton fabric from a small company that is in close contact with their producers.
The quality is amazing and a dream to work with and to wear.
Feeling good in what you wear throughout the day is adding to your wellbeing, but also loving what you wear instead of throwing it away after a season makes a huge difference in our throw-away society.
Each garment is handmade and made to order. The processing time can vary due to many factors included in creating a unique handmade garment. Providing measurements with your order will speed up the process. Should your order depend on a specific time frame please enquire to see what is possible. Although all possible measures are taken to get your order as fast as possible to you, delivery times are out of my hands.

Handmade and tailored to your body measurements
Each garment is handmade and created especially for you, using your specific measurements. You also choose the colour and sometimes the type of the material. This means the order is very personal and made especially for you with a lot of love and care. As you are unique and nobody is likely to have exactly your body measurements or taste I cannot accept returns. Head covers can be returned if they are unworn.
Each garment is handmade and created especially for you using your unique measurements. Don't worry if you have never measured yourself, it is straight forward and this little effort will make sure your garment fits and feels great!
Why do I still choose a size although I am sending through measurements? This gives me an idea about your body shape. Sometimes it is not possible to provide body measurements, that is okay. Some sizing details (like jeans size, height....) can be sufficient.
Colour of the fabric and thread
Sometimes photo colours can vary, or photos show custom orders but sometimes providers slightly change their tone of fabric. Please read descriptions carefully and choose from the drop-down menu. If you have questions don't hesitate to contact me.
Some listings offer a thread choice. The hand-stitched elements shine even more beautiful in a contrasting tone. I have added the drop-down for the thread colour where I usually love to add a bit of colour. If not specified, I will use a thread colour in a similar tone. In case you want a specific colour thread with your order please message me. Usually I have a range of different thread colours in stock.
The fabric I use is of highest quality. The organic cotton fabric is ethically sourced. Sometimes for bands or where a stretch is needed fabric with a small percentage of Elastane is used. The garments are machine sewn with a Polyester thread. Unfortunately the organic cotton thread cannot promise enough durability at this point in time. The visible hand stitching is decorative and functional but also here the thread contains polyester. Should I find similar quality thread in organic cotton, I will update this here.
Every order is special and will be wrapped carefully and with love. Bigger orders are wrapped in parcel paper and twine with a card containing material content and washing instructions.
Head covers come with a thank you note attached with a colourful thread. The bangles come in an envelope, hand stamped. The bangle itself is attached to card with a thank you message.
At this moment I use manilla envelopes for smaller orders. The bigger orders come in a parcel bag.
I am always researching more sustainable packaging and will update this here.
All orders are pre-washed to reduce shrinkage using a mild detergent. Then the fabric is air-dried before it is ready for use.
