About us

The clothes and the accessories that we design follow a simple, minimal aesthetic and a practical, functional ethos: we would like people to be able to use them everyday and everywhere.

We want to inspire people to live with few timeless objects that are made to last. This is why quality over quantity is a cornerstone of our philosophy and we have no interest in trends or seasonal collections.

Social and environmental issues are at the core of our work. By sourcing local materials, producing as little waste as possible and making our customers think about the impact of their choices, we aim to find sustainable solutions at every step of production.
