Ft. Lonesome is the place where your story meets our collective story. It’s an approach to life – a mindset. It’s small and wild and careful.
Fort Lonesome Camp and Custom garments are herded into the stable by Kathie Sever, who, during her time as the designer of the children’s clothing line Ramonster, came to the conclusion that there had to be a clientele for clothing born of a mindfulness the manufacturing industry has by and large chosen not to cultivate.
Transitioning from manufacturing en masse to focusing on one garment at a time has allowed for the return to the kind of hyper-attention to detail that is impossible to recreate in a production situation – the symbiotic creation that is born from the collaboration of the client and the maker. The choices; each made specific to the moment, the person, and the desire.
Our studio here at Fort Lonesome World Headquarters is set up to, and enthusiastic about working with clients both singular and vast. Chainstitch embroidery will always be a one-of-a-kind labor of love, no matter the size of the job, so we're able to give equal attention and intention to every client we work with. We're eager see the reestablishment of non-digitized, maker-driven, domestic embroidery and happy to connect with anyone else looking to incorporate this type of specialized skill into their collection.
