A mother-and-daughter team design and create clothes for women looking for interesting styles and good cuts
A year ago, Jone and Edurne – a mother with 25 years of experience in dressmaking and daughter who has academic training in fashion – launched themselves out onto the road, literally, on board a caravan from where they sold clothes that they'd designed and put together themselves. Now, the project has moved onto the next stage in the shape of a shop-workshop, where they make and distribute their own take on sustainable fashion: designs made using surplus from material from Catalan textile companies. The clothes from 6970 respond to the needs of women who, with the passing of time, have seen their figure change but don't want to dress in dull or conservative clothes. The pieces from 6970 are fluid, and the cut generous: in the mass market, clothes tend to be small because the producers use less material as a way to save money. The seamstresses assure us that there is a numbers (6970) game behind this, that they'll happily explain to you when you visit their shop.
