In spring 2017 Aerende launched a textile programme working with refugees in Hertfordshire. The project was designed to alleviate the social isolation that refugees often experience, while providing an opportunity for meaningful activity alongside improving skills and practising English in a friendly and flexible environment.
We call it Aerende Bespoke.
Working in linen, organic cotton or waste materials provided by textile companies, we are happy to discuss orders for a wide range of fabric items from restaurants, hotels interior designers and private individuals.
Clients so far include Massimo Bottura, StudioIlse, Petersham Nurseries and The London Linen Company.
Please contact email@example.com for more information.
