Sometimes pictures, or a video rather, tell a better story than words themselves. Thanks to Guesthouse Creative for coming by and filming this video, capturing a bit of the behind the scenes process that goes into LVR.
It all started with a handmade Christmas...well, honestly, it started way before that. LVR has been a culmination of my past, of my history, of being raised by a gentleman. My father is a gentleman in every sense of the word - from his dress to his manners. He is the reason I began sewing handkerchiefs and what has led me to create this line. But going back to the Christmas of 2011. My family decided to do a handmade Christmas. I decided to make my father handkerchiefs (because he is never without one - ever). He loved them and for the months following kept encouraging me to try to sell them. I finally listened to his advice and one thing led to another and LVR became a men's accessories line.
I want my beliefs and my lifestyle to be present in what I make. I want my business to be a natural extension of my life. Hence my desire to use only natural dyes to color my pocket squares and handkerchiefs. And to source the best fabric I can. Fabric that makes me excited. Fabric that makes me dream and want to travel. To explore this earth and see that beauty it beholds.
