the calico.archive pursues both wearable artefacts and soft sculpture — intermittent releases, made-to-order pieces, and a high focus on detailing. An emphasis on designing for life. garments and objects are released at a glacial pace, reflecting the deliberate levels of detail possessed in each. locally sourced and often from discarded end-of-run fabric rolls, calico.archive items are intensely unique and intimately personal. Everything made in-house in five.one.six. Non-gendered, non-bodied, the archive fervently pursues the calico.whore mantra: to construct a garment is to build a home.
