This Ilk

This Ilk

Launched in 2008, This Ilk combines the comfortable lightweight and the ornamental aesthetic qualities of high end, with vintage and new lace into a collection of textured statement jewelry.

Founded by Tamara Bavdek, who believes that lace is to textiles what gold is to metal and diamonds to rocks, each piece is carefully crafted into wearable art in limited quantities in her Montreal studio.

Sourcing rare fabrics, designing, dyeing, stiffening, sewing, and assembling are all part of the process. Reducing, reusing and sourcing locally when possible are all part of their sustainability practices.
