Henrietta founded Henri in 2016 after studying at London college of Fashion and working as a freelance pattern cutter. Particularly interested in form, fit and function she wanted to create a niche line of shirts that could be versatile design wise, yet still required the need for excellent pattern cutting and attention to detail. Her love of the English country side and Devon coastline adds a practical and care-free element to a range that is otherwise tailored.

 

Through working on Henri, Henrietta has developed a passion for continued learning on sustainability and social responsibility within the business. She has explored the far corners of her supply chain, travelling to India to meet the cotton farmers, spinners, weavers and activists who collectively create the fabrics she works with. This learning process has been integral in forming the values which guide her business decisions.
