My Katrin Reifeiss collection is made-to-order and each piece is hand-dyed and produced in my studio or at a local factory in the Hudson Valley. My mission is to create timeless pieces that do not adhere closely to a specific trend or season rather focusing on simple, relaxed silhouettes that complement and showcase the hand-dyed pattern. I believe in the future-is-handmade, a thoughtful practice of creating items to order to reduce textile waste and to keep the use of natural resources down. I use natural materials like silk to cotton and buy from USA and sustainable resources when possible.
WEAR UPSTATE by Katrin Reifeiss is a label designed, handcrafted and inspired by upstate New York living. Created out of a desire for beautiful and wearable designs each hand-dyed or painted piece is a limited-edition numbered design. Using fabric like cotton gauze and linen to dyes such as marigold petals and indigo.
Buy something you love, wear it forever and know your clothes were hand-dyed and produced by me.
