Unique Design, Beautiful Embellishment and Ethical Practise.
The idea for the See+QUIN range of sweatshirts came from a simple truth, we love wearing gorgeous sweatshirts and we're sure you do too. They're our absolute go to item and we thought it was time to give them a See+QUIN twist. A sweatshirt should be comfortable and cosseting but we think it should also be a beautiful thing that you feel amazing wearing. That's when we decided to create the See+QUIN range of sweats, your favourite sweatshirt made even more special in a unique, beautiful and ethical way.
Our sweatshirts bring together the best base pieces with the most wonderful embellishment designs. Think classic styles adorned with bold arrangements to create sweatshirts that are truly unique. We use the traditional embellishment techniques and elevate these time-honoured skills with our innovative, playful and whimsical approach to design.
We design all of our embellishments by hand at the See+QUIN Studio and then work closely with a local artisan embroidery house, the St Mawgan Embroidery Company, here in the UK to translate this into a machine embroidery design. Each sweatshirt in our range is embellished to order, right here in the UK, on a limited run pre order basis. Slow fashion to cherish without the waste. The sweatshirts are Fair Wear and made from an organic cotton and recycled polyester blend meaning they are more sustainable and kinder to the world and it's people. We strive to make fair and sustainable choices throughout our process. You can find out more about our Ethical Practises here.
The See+QUIN Studio was established in 2014 and has been providing embellishment concept designs for the fashion and homewares design industry since. In autumn 2021 we launched our range of embellished sweatshirts in our signature style with more beautiful, unique and ethical designs coming soon.
We met at infant school when we were just 6 years old and have been friends ever since. Over the years we've shared childhood adventures, teenage antics and all the ups and downs of being (or trying to be) grown ups. We're delighted to be working on the See+QUIN product range together and are so excited to be sharing it with you.
After Uni Kate moved to New York as an in house Embellishment Designer for names like Rebecca Taylor, J.Crew and Tory Burch. At the same time Sarah headed to London and worked in Media Sponsorship & Promotions. After a fair few years of city life we both felt a desire for a more laidback pace, Kate returned to the Bath area and Sarah moved down to Cornwall. In 2014 Kate founded See+QUIN Studio and Sarah set up her own small business, an indie trader events company. In 2021 we decided to partner up and create a range of wonderful See+QUIN one off and limited edition products with the See+QUIN Studio signature style and ethos.
