About Us

In merging form and idea, we bring abstract concepts – via the inspiration and illumination of dreams, the imaginal, and philosophical enquiry – into form and design in order to help create and foster a new awareness based on positive, life-giving values. 

Inevitably, our products promote conscious living and individual expression rather than conformity to any trend or ideal.

By creating products as tangible aspects of abstract concepts, it is our hope that these products will foster and embed positive values, hope, inspiration, and renewal.

What We Do
Apparel & Accessories
Vintage, recycled, and new fabrics are carefully selected to create one-offs and limited runs, along with some hand-picked and modified vintage. Our philosophy is to focus on form and originality, transcending trends and conformity.
In merging form and idea, we explore the metaphysical and transpersonal through art, through various mediums.
100% recycled paper is used as well as upcycled, usually vintage components, to create items intended to be treasured and collected.
Vintage and upcycled materials and pieces are presented to preserve the distinctive finds that have been painstakingly sourced; each piece is intended to be a collectable keepsake.
♦ Individual expression and personal empowerment: while fashion and consumerism cultivate self-comparison and a sense of lack, everything we do is aimed at encouraging a true expression of the individual self, as well as a reverence and appreciation for everything around us and within us. We believe that everyone has a rare and precious essence that is worthy of being expressed, celebrated, and honoured.
♦ Innovation and originality: As the name Unknown Quantity suggests, each new project is a wildcard. In consistently reaching for new vistas and exploring diverse possibilities, we aim to create as independently of any cultural frameworks as possible, eschewing conformity in favour of discovery, experimentation, and play.
♦ Reverence: a wholly underused and overlooked value. We uphold and encourage reverence for life, which means that in whatever we do, we aim to do it in the most positive way possible. This means carefully thought-out, useful products, made in the most ethical and sustainable ways possible.
