The greatest design may look excellent on paper. But can destroy the look, if the pattern, material and manufacture don’t get equal attention.
We put great care into developing patterns that move along with the people who wear them.
We put great effort in sourcing the right material for the right item.
Not every material works for every piece, and the environment where the clothes are worn has a big impact on how the material will look like over time.

The performance of your clothes is directly impacted by the environment they are in as well as how they are laundered and cared for. Factors that determine the lifecycle of your clothes are:
- How often the clothes are washed.
- The condition of the water used – e.g. the amount of salt or other damaging elements that are in the water.
- What washing detergent are used – even mass market “colour safe” detergent can remove the colour with regular and repeated washing.
- How often and how long clothes are exposed to sunlight form both regular wear and drying.
Considering the above elements we recommend for clothes to be worn 2-3 times a week a lifecycle of 6-8months, at which we would recommend replacing the items.
All our suppliers are Oeko-Tex 100 or GOTS certified. Two brands that guarantee the exclusion of toxic products for the body and for the environment (in the manufacture of our textiles).
Much have we heard about poor working condition and explosion of cheap labour. This topic is very close to our heart.
