ANCLIFFE is a limited edition women’s clothing line based in Portland, ORE. and designed by Rachel Ancliffe. The collection is designed with everyday wear in mind: sensual and feminine fabrics, strong and confident styles. Each piece should feel good, age well and integrate seamlessly into your wardrobe.
Using hand-dyed fabrics and experimental patterning techniques, Ancliffe elevates everyday pieces through artistry and hand-craft. The upcoming collection offers tailored blazers, indigo-dyed silk dresses and cotton skirts which are resist-patterned in the traditional Japanese style of Shibori. These labor-intensive processes result in stunning organic patterns, and offer unique, one-of-a-kind and limited edition pieces.
Rachel has over 18 years of experience in the clothing industry. She currently lives and works in Portland, OR, USA. If you would like to contact Rachel directly please see the Contact page for email and mailing list info.
