Who made it? Who designed it?
Everything at Syra Brownlock is made and designed by me - from the sketches to the pattern to the outfit in your hands.
Everything is made to order to ensure minimal waste, and is made according to your style and size.
I use only ethically-sourced fabrics, and even materials like buttons and zips. Everything is sustainable, fairly traded, handmade, spun or dyed, or environmentally-friendly. Along with your creation you'll also receive a card with details of everything that's gone into it, so you know your purchase supports your values.
