I have often highlighted the creativity for which London is famous. Black Horse Lane Atelier is a perfect example of this. They are a Walthamstow-based (east London) community- and sustainability-focused company that manufacture ready-to-wear denim jeans. At a time and age when a lot of products are made overseas in sweatshops, it was a privilege to see homegrown jeans made in Britain. It was also an honour to pay Black Hose Lane Atelier a visit last autumn and talk to David, product manager and raw denim enthusiast. Cycle diaries are time-lmited, but there was so much I wanted to know about Black Horse Atelier and so much David wanted to share that we ended up splitting the conversation into two parts (he also had costumers to attend to on the day and there was a workshop going on). I hope you enjoy this interview. The London Cycle Diaries will return in 2018 with lots more stories to share.
I wish you all a Happy New Year.
