when it comes to fabrics we’re really fussy about what we wear and what we use at byfreer.
we like fabrics that look good, work hard and take minimal effort for maintenance. (isn’t that a philosophy for life?)
alongside our silks and cottons, viscose is a favourite at byfreer.
our crepe georgette has the perfect amount of weight to drape and flatter, but not cling to, everywoman’s body..
viscose is often labelled dry clean only because of shrinkage, but we remove this problem for you by twice washing our items - once before and once after sewing the garment. like everything else we create, our viscose is totally easy care and can be washed then dried on the line - giving you more time to sit and relax with that vodka martini.
byfreer designer Lesley, works closely with our maker to come up with new unique looks that work with the quirkiness of the fabric and says “I really enjoy playing around with fabrics when I design. with viscose I noticed the selvedge edge and it appealed to me, so I decided to make a feature of the fraying and incorporate it into the design of the garment. some of the sleeves, hems and inserts have frayed edges utilising the natural selvedge of the fabric. its also gives my garments that rough luxe feel that I like so much”
our viscose garments are great for travelling as they can be hand washed, and hung to dry quickly, most creases fall away and items like the dream tee with a classic deep v neck, frayed hem and contrast details, go well with everything.
