Hi! I'm Aina, the soul behind the brand! Here you can learn a little bit more about me.

From our forests to your clothes.
Did you know that the dyeing of textile fibres can require as much as 200 tonnes of water for every tonne of textiles produced? That sounds really alarming so we decided that we had to change that.
The first recorded mention of fabric dyeing dates all the way back to 2600 BC. Originally, dyes were made with natural pigments mixed with water and oil and used for jewlery or fabrics.
So, at what point we stopped using plants?
Easy, industrialization. Toxic dyes are really fast and easy to use, but also very toxic.
That's why we want to travel back into a time where we respected our planet, in where the garments were made with love and each one was special and unique.
The dyes we use are plant based, we can dye with roots, flowers or leaves and we don't use any toxic during the process.
Natural dyes take care of the planet and also of your skin, they are really recommended for sensitive skin people.
Made on demand
Made just for you.
The 80% of the discarded textiles are doomed for landfills.
And that leaves the question: Is there anything we can do to save textiles from landfills?
The answer is a huge YES.
We can reuse, buy less and produce on demand or in small productions.
That means that every garment is made for you, that it can be modified if you want and that will fit you perfectly. But not just that, made on demand also means that we don't produce more cloths that we can sell aka textile waste.
That makes on demand garments highly sustainable.
From nature to nature.
Natural fibers are obtained from plants (such as cotton, bambú, linen….) animals (such as wool), or insects (such as silk). Like anything designed by nature, natural fibers slowly disappear back into the earth at the end of their life. A T-Shirt made from 100% cotton will decompose within a few months, and pure linen can biodegrade in as little as two weeks.
That's a very important point, but not the only one. Natural fibers create a healthy and friendly environment for your skin. They are breathable, so won’t harbour bacteria and fungi. The "breathability" of natural fiber textiles makes their wearers less prone to skin rashes, itching and allergies often caused by synthetics. Meaning that they take care of your skin too.
Some of our fabrics are organic and the others are sourced from deadstock textiles, giving them a second life, and promoting a circular economy.
We also work with cruelty free fabrics and also try to always give a vegan option.
