Bio

grown in Arkansas, distilled in Oregon

 


Laurs Kemp hails from the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas, where she wiled away the hot summers watching old movies and sketching dresses inspired by those movies. In 2012, she made the move to Portland, OR, where she began designing a small-batch clothing line inspired by cinema.

In 2015 - 2016, she was the designer-in-residence for Backtalk, where she designed and made her garments out of a little studio space in the back of the shop. She currently works out of a studio space in inner SE Portland.

You can track her movie obsession on her personal film diary @_staircasewit on Instagram or at mubi.com.

 

 

Zero-waste Studio

Each item from the collection is sewn at Laurs Kemp’s studio in Portland, OR from small runs of mill end fabric sourced from local outlets. Many of our one-of-a-kind items are repurposed from vintage fabric or garments. All fabric scraps are donated to Gem Text Recycling, allowing us to be a zero-waste studio.

 

Sustainability Philosophy

We create mostly seasonless clothing that can be worn in Summer or layered with other pieces in Winter. Rather than following the traditional fashion calendar of 2-4 collections per year, we design capsule collections - adding and omitting styles along the way depending on fabric availability.
