The concept for Uwe Raw Cotton began when Fashion Designers Uwe Doering and Sharon Lemon were living in Australia. They started researching fabrics and found Cotton to be perfect for extreme temperatures, wanting a unique fabric to compliment their unique designs they approached a weaver who agreed to hand weave the cotton to their specifications, not stopping there they decided to hand dye the cotton and use only coconut shell for buttons to create environmentally friendly clothing.
Returning to the U.K. Uwe Raw Cotton had remarkable success, receiving Gold and Silver medals for Fashion Design and Best Innovative New Business, being chosen from thousands to show their new Autumn Collection at ‘Simpson’s of Piccadilly’, nominated for best Fashion Stand at BBC’s Clothes Show Live, awarded best stand at The Royal Highland Show and Shrewsbury Flower Show.
A String of ‘A’ List Celebrity Customers followed and a full Calendar attending over 40 Shows and Exhibition’s per year.
Hand Woven Cotton
Skillfully hand woven and hand dyed this is a living fabric which is cool soft and comfortable. This fabric is made from the cotton plant seed pod and will absorb and release perspiration quickly thus allowing the skin to breathe naturally.
These qualities make this perfect clothing for hot weather and tropical climates.
All our designer cotton clothing are machine washable.
