Our design process

A SKETCH BECOMES A SHOE OR BAG IN A YEAR

From start to finish, the process is a slow, but savory one. It takes approximate one year form the first stroke of a design sketch to sourcing new materials around the globe for our collections, to when the finished product arrives at your doorstep. The relationship with our ateliers is only half the story.

ALL OUR COLLECTIONS ARE DESIGNED HERE IN AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS

Together with a freelance design team comprised of designers, pattern makers, textile designers and technical designers, our collections are truly a collaborative experience. We all work together to create the Kindreds magic. Once a collection has been designed, we take our vision to our talented teams the world over for sampling and finally, production.

We believe that sustainable fashion is slow fashion. With this always in mind, we are committed to creating timeless collections that will last for many years. We stay away from traditional, seasonal collections as much as we can.
