Charlotte Moss for IBU

Inspired by the Charlotte’s passion for travel around the globe, Charlotte Moss for Ibu reflects her favorite, timelessly chic classics with an array of dresses, caftans, day jackets, pants, and tunics of solid, printed and embroidered cottons and hand-dyed silks, cashmere and wool. In addition, a complement of must-have accessories from necklaces, bangles, cuffs, earrings, shawls and mules accompany colorful eyeglasses and capes to round out the collection.

Drawing from rich cultural traditions in textiles: weaving, dyeing, embroidery skills practiced by women – not quite extinct but endangered, Charlotte has imagined a modern, urban style that celebrates these ancient crafts, reflecting her well-defined sartorial style and travels. With a glamorous, artful sensibility Charlotte Moss for Ibu features garments and accessories handmade by women artisans in Bangladesh, Afghanistan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Peru, and Morocco.

As an ambassador for the Ibu movement, Charlotte’s collection is a reflection of her own soulful experience. She states, “I cannot tell you what a joy, a challenge, and a journey it has been over the past year working on my collection with Susan Walker and her talented team. It has been a rare privilege to have been given the opportunity to work with women artisans around the world through Ibu, while combining things that are dear to me. Supporting women through their work, making them feel vital and self-sustaining, and having the chance to collaborate with someone very passionate about her vision, all the while designing – something I have never done before – has been a deeply rewarding venture.”

Founded in 2013 by Susan Hull Walker, a former minister who studied world religions at Harvard Divinity School, Ibu is the culmination of Susan’s spiritual and creative journey. Through her study of fiber-arts at Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), Susan learned to weave and articulate the language of material culture. Her sense of adventure and passion for textiles has led her to connect with women’s cooperatives around the globe.

The Ibu Movement, has grown into an international social enterprise offering goods handmade by women in 79 different artisan groups throughout the world. The flagship showroom in Charleston, South Carolina, also houses a studio where the Ibu team designs fresh interpretations of textile traditions.
