Pajotten is a new British clothing brand, it was formed in 2016 by partners Fashion designer Rebecca Barton and buyer of vintage European chore wear Ben Sears.
The focus at Pajotten is on creating quiet, contemporary clothing, simple garments in natural fibres. Detailing is considered and kept to a utilitarian minimum. Importantly the garments are a reflection of what we enjoy wearing, and feel confident in.
While the detailing is pared down our sizing is generous, we want people to feel comfortable in the clothes, pockets are deep and sleeves and hems are wide.
Always averse to the waste and environmental impact of the fashion industry we aim to do things differently through Pajotten, firstly all of our pieces are made to order individually in our Kent studio, and finished by hand, this means there aren’t lots of unsold garments thrown into landfill, instead your garment will be made for you specifically, and dispatched within 2 - 4 weeks, and because it will be made to order rather than made to measure, if you are not satisfied you can return it.
Sustainability also impacts the fabrics we use, we are very keen to support British manufacture so everything we use including fabrics, trimmings and buttons are either sourced from UK mills and companies, or bought as 'deadbolt' from designer level studios.
Because we are a small brand we are able to do things differently, rather than working to fixed seasons we simply add new pieces when we feel they are needed, this means there will always be something new on the website while your favorites will stay available.
We are also keen to communicate directly with customers, and are happy to send out fabric swatches prior to purchase, and if you require a longer or shorter length than we offer please get in touch.
