Our Makers: Jason

Jason and team

JASON - OUR WOVEN MAKER.

Jason is the longest standing Maker in our Arnhem Makers family. One of our very first makers we started working together in 2012, Jason has worked on most of our well-known collections, including Primrose, Portofino, Spanish Rose, Soleil and Flora.
Jason runs a small-scale garment manufacturing unit in Tongxiang, a rural area approximately a 2- hour drive outside of Shanghai. First started with his wife in 2010, Jason specialises in delicate, soft woven creations and is the expert when it comes to our intricate floral prints.
Our visit to meet Jason’s team of makers also in part inspired our ‘Revive’ project. We were amazed to see the off-cuts and remnants of fabric from our past collections utilised around the sampling and production rooms to make pin cushions, ropes for scissors and cushion covers for their chairs.
