The rake

The modern voice of classic elegance

Blackhorse Lane

Blackhorse Lane Ateliers owner Bilgehan ‘Han’ Ates, who has worked in the industry for 25 years, founded the label in 2016 with the goal of making the best jeans in the world. By recruiting tailors to work in his London factory, sourcing premium denim from around the world and encouraging local production – including sourcing premium denim – Ates has made good progress in achieving that. What's better, the company is committed to lessening the environmental impact of its creations, using organic cotton and offering a lifetime repair policy.
