How h.huna began...

The inspiration and story behind the brand

Before...

The inspiration behind h.huna stems from the amazing story of each garment and what the magic attention to detail can bring, one of which I (aka Siobhan, the founder of h.huna) thrive to build upon. It all started back in the 90’s when my Grandmother (a.k.a Nan) made my communion dress and only then did I start to see the talent that goes into structuring clothing. Over time I started to delve deeper into her wardrobe containing clothing from the 50’s and 60’s that she had made with her own hands or had been passed on from one of her sisters. In light of this and following a 10 year career working within the fast paced fashion environment I decided to take a side step and follow my dream of creating a key capsule collection consisting of simple, functional, pristine quality wardrobe essentials designed to tell a story from beginning through to the finished article, to be worn time and time again the h.huna way. 

During…

Wishing to represent the talent of the manufacturers close to home, h.huna started the ball rolling by working primarily with UK and Scottish factories. A slow process that involved several trips and multiple cups of tea in which good relationships were built and beautiful garments were created. Each piece is designed to tell a tale be it a high rise waist inspired by a typical Marlene Dietrich masculine twist, a natural fibre fabric from a fairtrade source or an end of line stock fabric to lessen landfill.

Now…

We launched our first collection end of 2019, a collection made with love, a story-telling purpose and exceptional dressmaking talent. And this is the way we intend to continue, to promote slow fashion in purposeful styles to help you our #hhunawomen to identify your individual character and to be at one with your identity across your wardrobe pieces.
