β„‘SSA EAKIN is a London-based brand that consists of artisanally crafted garments and home objects referencing the designer’s eccentric Guatemalan grandfather’s approach to dressing as the main influence for design. Through collaboration with artisans in Guatemala and the UK, this project contradicts fast production of clothing, as Issa Eakin delivers a made-to-order approach. Each project is released only when ideas percolate within the right amount of time. Through producing on this basis, we eliminate excess production and encourage repairs and alterations to extend the life of our pieces. Each of our projects is a themed body of work for wear, home, and display.
