rag & bone alum, Stefan Ayon established STAY MADE catering to private clients and close cohorts. What started as an exploration in leather, Ayon was challenged to create structure and dimension from a single piece of veg tan. STAY MADE quickly grew to include furniture, leather goods, unisex ready-to-wear and footwear.
Stefan Ayon, a self-taught designer and craftsman, honed his skills in the South-London area of Brixton before moving back to New York; launching the first season of STAY MADE in 2017.
Drawing influence from his blue-collar upbringing, STAY MADE is deeply rooted in work wear and counter-cultures with subtle nuances of personal themes - focusing on function, fabric, and quality.
STAY MADE garments are constructed by a handful of talented craftsmen and women in Hell's Kitchen, New York. Using traditional old-world tailoring techniques in a family owned and operated factory.
Nothing overlooked, nothing superfluous.
