South Street Linen
In the Fall of 2010, three mid career artists, friends for decades, came together with an idea that led to the beginning of South Street Linen. Since then, working with a series of local contract seamstresses, a master printer on Vinalhaven Island, and other supportive businesses, they are fully functional and dreaming up new garments, patterns and fabrics daily. Their commitment to the re-emerging textile community in Maine means they keep their manufacturing local. South Street Linen considers themselves part of the growing "slow fashion" movement, where quality and enduring design in small batches takes precedence over mass production.
