While studying print and fabric work at Concordia University, Canadian designer Arielle de Pinto found some spools of chain and couldn’t put them down. She eventually discovered a way to turn the chain into fabric.
In 2007, she launched her namesake line, establishing her timeless shapes and signature aesthetic. She has since been presenting seasonal themed collections, complex garments, accessories, masks, and tapestries.
The unique crochet technique gave de Pinto no option to draw from the pre-fabricated offerings of the existing jewellery industry, so she spent years hand developing all her hardware, and consulting experienced artisans to create a seamless body of work.
