Do My Home Work Do My Homework ‘You can make everything if you want to; there’s nothing that would stop you doing that. … You can make your own bag; you can make your dresses and your trousers and everything. And it can be just as beautiful as anything that’s out there available to you on the high street.’ Carolyn Denham
Carolyn Denham and Roderick Field are Merchant & Mills. The company was formed in 2010 to elevate sewing to its proper place in the creative world, respecting the craftsmanship it entails. They produce a range of card patterns and really useful kits and in profound contrast to the pretty, flowery image of the average haberdasher, they present superb and unusual notions of sewing in stark, utilitarian packaging. In this video, Carolyn Denham and Roderick Field share their thoughts on dressmaking, photography and the ethos of Merchant & Mills. Click on the play button to watch.
