RUA CARLOTA by Charlotte Rose Kirkham is a creative exploration of what is already in existence, using only pre-loved/deadstock materials as a basis. Charlotte treats each piece as if it were a kind of art, each one injected with her creativity, produced with love and care out of her apartment in London.
As much an exploration of shape and pattern as it is texture, Charlotte’s construction-led approach can be seen throughout her work. Charlotte views the fabrics she uses as if they were her palette, with the stitching acting as her paintbrush. The beauty of Charlotte’s method is that it is impossible to make the same thing twice. Charlotte offers RUA CARLOTA customers something different – the opportunity to own something as entirely unique as they are.
RUA CARLOTA gives life to the forgotten ones. It challenges waste culture. It says that there is potential in everything. It deconstructs and reconstructs with a quiet confidence, and with freedom of creativity at its forefront. It begins with something rendered useless by society – and it ends with something beautiful.
