JACQUELINE DURRAN THE OSCAR WINNING COSTUME DESIGNER FOR WARNER BROS. 'PAN' SAYS:
"When working on the costumes for the upcoming film "Pan" for Warner Brothers, I was looking for fabrics to use on the principal character "Hook". In the movie, Hook is discovered working in a mine, and the style of his costume is based on 19th century American miner's clothing.
Finding fabrics that look authentically 19th century is very difficult. When we chanced upon MORALFIBRE we were delighted! There are many reasons why the fabrics work so well for us. First and foremost, the fact that the fabrics are hand woven gives them both a look and a feel that is difficult to match with machine manufactured cloth. Shailini has a keen eye, which succeeds in transforming what may appear to be a simple set of stripes, into something that is truly unique. The traditional, artisanal hand methods used to weave these fabrics, married with natural dyes and an array of patterns, is why we keep turning to MORALFIBRE for a variety of period costumes.
As a matter of principal our costume department is trying to be conscious of the source of the fabrics we use, to always support sustainable manufacture and to choose fair-trade whenever we have the opportunity. The ethical stand that MORALFIBRE has taken is such an important move in the fabric world. It is a pleasure to support this initiative and we look forward to working with them again in the future."
MORALFIBRE has supplied costume fabrics for three high powered Hollywood films: Warner Bros. PAN, Walt Disney's BEAUTY AND THE BEAST and Warner Bros. 'HARRY POTTER – THE PREQUEL'
