Facing West is a conceptual design and visual merchandising company which is founded by Lizzie Kroeze from Amsterdam – NL. With her company Facing West she makes the most beautiful pieces, all indigo workwear inspired. Most of the times she’s doing everything by hand, pure craftsmanship with a lot of Japanese and USA influences. Last year she did a great expo as part of the Bread & Butter trade show in July. The set-up was extremely cool and was filled with inspiration for every denim – indigo lover, designer, or people with interest in old school workwear clothing. If you haven’t seen it before, check it out here below. And check of course more indigo stuff on her new website.
