A journey into...

CREATING WITH INTENTION

Late Sunday Afternoon is dedicated to crafting handmade goods that epitomize meticulous details and superior quality. Our creations embody timelessness, seamlessly transcending the constraints of both past and future eras.

Since 2012, we have had the privilege of producing our exquisite offerings locally in the vibrant community of Venice, California. This locale has become the heart of our operations, and we are profoundly honored and grateful for the opportunity to contribute to the local artisanal landscape.

We extend a warm invitation for you to visit our store and immerse yourself in the world of Late Sunday Afternoon. gance we strive to create.

to create for others is an honor

Everything we make is for you

KNOTTED & BLESSED

Our scarves are meant to be a reminder. A reminder to return to the present moment and be conscious of the blessing of being alive. We believe in the energy that flows around the world, from person to person, from moment to moment.

When we finish our scarves, we tie four knots at the end of each garment - each one meant as a blessing for the person who will wear the scarf.

We knot & bless our creations to Love, Happiness, Adventure, and Mystery. We bless everything so you can practicing blessing yourself. How you speak to yourself is how you show up in your world.

THINK DIFFERENT - MAKE DIFFERENT

We choose not to be another clothing company creating disposable fashion in a factory half-way around the world with dubious labor practices. We take pride in being a no-waste business, and creating a conscientious production process that honors the people who work for us, the earth, and our community.

Sense Magazine

Sense Magainze takes an in depth look at the process of Matthew making scarf.

From The Founder

"I always knew that creating was in me. I can't help it. Everything I have always done has been like that. Break it, create it, bend it, glue it, anything to get the feeling of the vision. Bringing things into the material plane from the heart/mind is a process that has no boundaries. It is a objective that the very act is feeding my soul."
— Matthew Schildkret

Echoes of Hope

With the first and last yard of every roll of fabric that we use, we make baby blankets for children in the Echoes of Hope program.

For the past four years we've been donating custom made blankies to foster kids in Los Angeles. We were working with the DCFS which takes care of kids as they transition into foster care. They are lovely people, but they do not allow contact with the children. So every year we make blankies that go out of our shop and we know they are going to kids who will love them, but we never got to see the impact for ourselves.

Dog Beds Made from Scraps

Our production process creates little strips of fabric that in the rest of the fashion industry would go into a trash bin and would eventually find its way to a landfill. We didn't want to be part of that cycle. So we talked to our friends at Groundwork Coffee and got them to donate burlap coffee sacks that we fill with our fabric strips. We then sew them up with a nice trim, and create soft yet durable dog beds for donation to our dog rescue partner Maeday Rescue.
