The Atlantis Hotel in the Bahamas is a great example. In under 35 days, we collaborated on a vibrant new wardrobe featuring custom fabrics, designs, and patterns. We provided samples along the way so they could test fit, washability, and breathability – key factors in the Caribbean climate. The finished products featured gorgeous colours with high quality, easy care, easy iron fabrics. The client loved them – and so did the staff.

Our friends at the Weyanoke Hotel wanted uniforms that brought back the historic style and vibe of their boutique hotel. Their look needed to complement the brand’s mid-century modern design and residential style furnishings. Working with Kloth Studio, they were able to achieve all the design goals they set for themselves without compromising on quality or functionality of high performance fabrics. We were able to successfully deliver three designs for three teams in under 41 days from initial proposal to final delivery.

One of New York City’s hottest dining destinations, this Spanish food hall on Manhattan’s west side required a new look to match the space’s modern Mediterranean vibes. Our designers collaborated closely with their marketing team to identify the perfect fabrics that were stylish yet functional with a distinct European flair. In only 4.5 weeks, we designed and delivered a complete wardrobe featuring several sets + sizes, beating out a competing supplier from Europe who was originally selected for the job but unable to match Kloth Studio’s prices and long-term supply capabilities.
