    I think so. He just doesn't want pics on the Internet, hence you probably don't hear much of him. I do find it pathetic that he has no stock lists in the UK. That's simply wrong.

    If he hasn't any stockists in the UK, then were does he have them? Any info?

    Thanks. Harvey's in Berlin or L'Eclaireur might do the trick, Japan being a bit off field for me at the moment. I'n not familiar with Song in Vienna.

    Eastern Market also stocks Harnden I believe. Odd that there's no UK stockists, did Pollyanna drop him (or did they just remove his stuff from being sold online)?

    I believe they dropped him because of the internet issue...I could swear I read that somewhere...maybe not.

    L'eclaireur - Paris
    IF - New York
    Song - Vienna
    Harvey's - Berlin
    Eastern Market - Melbourne

    The occasional piece pops up on yoox. Pollyanna used to stock him but they no longer do, online sales issue.

    Yes, his last 'season' (if you can even call it that) was rather compelling, I've come to a new appreciation of his offerings.

    i'm not saying things should be trumpeted from bell towers either, but such active effort in keeping your own work obscure seems to harbour some kind of ulterior motive.
    Can't we say the same thing about Carol?

    Again merzbow I think it's a personal issue, he's a bit of a hermit from what I understand and happy to live in his corner of the world, just quietly making clothes and shoes. Who knows, one might consider the possibility that he simply dislikes technology and doesn't want his work caught up in it.

    Side note - isn't it said that in today's consumer world we think that everything, absolutely everything is, or at least can be, marketing?

    not so sure that he dislikes technology... would you say the boiled wool stuff he's been doing for PH as well as earlier for CDG is not technology? i would consider it is... albeit in a more crafts sense.

    Faust brings up a great point there.

    What I meant was virtual technology, the intangible world accessible through the transistors, diodes, resistors and capacitors of computers..

    I teach two classes on that. Let's kick it.

    I guess he just doesn't want you to find your wife over some random chat room, only to find out later that it's not working out for you.
