    • Value

      The value of a locally handmade, unique piece of clothing, made from historic fabrics is a soulful and quality investment.

      Each We-Resonate piece has a unique number on it's label, like a limited edition print, but this is an original. With this number we track its history and extend its story into the future. The piece is forever a part of the We-Resonate archive online, showing the date, who brought it and who made it to future owners.

      We offer a buy back scheme so please get in touch love@we-resonate.com.

    • Imperfections

      Imperfections

      • The fabrics used are mostly over 30 years old.
      • They are selected for their high quality.
      • However, due to their age, small imperfections or colour differences can be seen on the fabrics. We have a tolerance level as we believe these minor imperfections also bring beauty and history to the piece.
      • We can only say, show these pieces care and love (whilst having fun) and they’ll last you many lifetimes.
