At a glance: Hackwith Design House is a womenswear line that produces unique, casual, handmade clothing in very small batches.
Who’s behind the brand? Lisa Hackwith has a background in art, but her sewing skills are all self-taught. She designs and handmakes every piece in her collection herself, and even does some of the dying.
What do they do? Aside from the fact that every piece is lovingly handmade in a small Minneapolis studio, you get the joy of knowing that there are less than 25 of each design crafted. Ever. The Hackwith Design House philosophy is that your favorite piece of clothing can be as unique as you are. And in a time of mass-production and mass-consumption, that idea is a breath of fresh air. Of course, none of this would matter if the designs were no good, but they are. Hackwith Design House produces the kind of easy, comfortable casual clothing that you can live in.
Where are they based? Minneapolis, Minnesota.
What materials do they use? Rayon, Cotton, and Wool.
Editors’ favorites from the line? As with many of our featured businesses, Hackwith Design House produces their goods in such small batches that the turnover is quite fast, so chances are that what we love at the time of writing this is no longer available. Still, we have to recommend the Cocoon Dress and the Mulberry Scarf.
I want to see more! They have a lovely style blog/ tumblr which you can check out for a closer look at their aesthetic.
Where can I get the goods? Get the garments at the online store: (Quickly! There are so few of each piece produced…)
They also do special collaborations with local boutiques in Minneapolis so if you’re in the area and the timing is right you might be able to snap some of those up. Previous collaborations have been with Parc and Cliché.
