The brand was born to answer the question: "What happens to hotel sheets?"

Thanks to ARCHIVIST STUDIO they become romantic shirts

By Jessica Marinetto

ARCHIVIST STUDIO is a project that stems from a very specific question that the designers Eugenie Haitsma and Johannes Offerhaus asked themselves.

What happens to hotel sheets?

Simple, they are thrown away as soon as they show a hint of imperfection, explains the head of the family of a luxury hotel in Mayfair in London. This means that when the bedding is discarded it is still in excellent condition for a high quality re-use.

So, between one phone call and another, a first supply of two hundred kilos of pure Egyptian cotton arrived, which gave birth to the brand that recovers sheets to create perfect white shirts.

The careful creation of blouses comes close to a classic haute couture garment suitable for any occasion. The fabric may have small defects which, however, are enhanced and embellished to avoid further waste of the fabric.

The hotels collect their sheets and send them to the ARCHIVIST atelier where they are carefully cleaned, cut and finally sewn.

The duo began by proposing the maximum and pure classicism of the shirt, enhancing it through a more fluid and oversized shape, making it a-gender.

Curled sleeves and bustier softened by mother-of-pearl buttons, tell us a more romantic story, like the elegant rayèe sheet that composes them. Isela, on the other hand, is an ecru cotton hippie shirt. A deep hyper feminine neckline highlights an irregular pleating in the bottom of the white bodice and in the cuffs of the wide sleeves of the blouse.

These timeless shirts have limited pieces and with the adherence of more hotels to this initiative new shirt models will be developed, even if the duo claimed to have collected enough fabric for the next three years thanks to donations.

Eugenie Haitsma and Johannes Offerhaus make an itinerant journey, together with their atelier, which takes them to hotels all over the world in order to sensitize them and involve them in this wonderful and ethical project.
