Coe Textiles started with a love affair for finely crafted clothing. From a young age, Amanda Coe found beauty in pieces handed down to her by her grandmother. A camel colored coat made from felted cashmere and a detachable mink collar was among her favorites. Every inch of the coat was mesmerizing from the hand stitched satin silk lining to the kimono cut sleeves popular in the 1950’s. With an International Ladies’ Garment Workers’ Union tag on the inside, the coat told a story of a once thriving domestic industry.
The fine materials and attention to detail in her grandmother’s coat set the standard as Amanda pursued a degree in textiles with a focus in apparel from the Rhode Island School of Design. After spending summers interning in New York, she was dissatisfied with the nature of global mass production and the fashion industry’s detachment from makers.
During her travel to India, and work here, she founded Coe Textiles during her 2 and a half year stint in the beautiful pink city. We got the opportunity to shoot some of her garments during a fun weekend getaway.
