Han Ates founded Blackhorse Lane Ateliers in April 2016 as a London-based craft jeans maker specialising in selvedge and organic raw denim. In this webinar, Han discusses how he got where he is today and the hurdles he had to overcome along the way. He talks about creating the Blackhorse Lane Ateliers’ distinctive USP, the importance of social media and working with labels including Raeburn, Martine Rose and Nigel Cabourn. He explains how designers should approach working with a manufacturer like Blackhorse Lane Ateliers, plus offers advice to entrepreneurs just starting out on their journey. He also outlines his holistic view of sustainability, covering the personal, social and environmental aspects, as well as how he has worked to create a business that is very much part of a local creative community.
