Workhouse Clothing

Peter Zain Leveritt



Iggy works out of a self refurbished old slaughterhouse in Bury St Edmunds. He has a real appreciation for hidden beauty in old things and it is this focus that guides his garment designs, a style that is eagerly followed and bought almost entirely in Japan

Standing at the end of a row of residential houses in Bury St Edmunds, we find the studio we are looking for: a single storey building, half painted black, with wooden steps to the entrance. Iggi swings open the door and greets us with a beaming smile, introducing his wife Ryoko. They co-own Workhouse Clothing, working from the old Victorian slaughterhouse they have restored, repaired and reclaimed, since 2011.
