Age of Reason is a UK accessories label making beautiful scarves, hats and cushions in Britain. As a label we pride ourselves on quality and integrity, creating wearable luxury with a playful, punk twist. Audacious prints and beautiful fabrics define our collections, which are stocked in some of the country's best boutiques.
Every fine accessory we produce is Made in England from natural fibres like pure silk, wool, chiffon and cotton velvet. We've scoured the country to source the finest materials, and only work with the very best UK based artisans who can meet our high standards. Each textile-based piece is hemmed and hand finished by a skilled seamstress in Yorkshire, while our hats are made in Sussex using traditional methods.
Designer Ali Mapletoft, a former London film-maker, creates unexpected imagery at her studio in Hove, using bold strokes of pen and ink on paper. Taking inspiration from literature, punk culture, and art, she applies a quintessentially British sense of humour to the creative process. Hidden motifs and surprises are Ali’s signatures. She often includes adventurous imagery like bondage clad Russian dolls in her scarf designs, and ensures that sections of the print can be revealed or concealed depending on the wearers mood. London plays an important role in the design process too with Ali spending days drawing in the British Museum and Royal Academy of Arts.
Age of Reason produces two fashion collections a year. In addition we add to our permanent collection seasonally, as well as producing special limited edition pieces. We create accessories for people who have come of age in their personal style, who love a statement piece and appreciate quality, versatility and longevity.
