About

Scalemaille and chainmaille for the modern warrior, hand-forged in NYC.

It Is Known marries a life-long interest in ancient storytelling with a lifetime dedication to artisan crafts. In 2015, designer S. Reardon turned her decade of experience in fashion design towards the art of chainmaille, fascinated by the mediums roots as well the modern community involved in it. In her work, Reardon draws from her M.A. in English and exquisite attention to detail in order to manifest hand-crafted, exclusive metal couture that stands the test of time. It Is Known is dedicated to unlocking and celebrating the story inside of each person.

Life is an adventure: dress accordingly.
