THE BRAND

Our studio commits to many circular strategies to ensure our products are always developed with sustainability and innovation in mind. Forward-thinking making techniques coupled with bio-fabrication, traditional craftsmanship and rapid prototyping makes our studio a pioneer in the field of sustainable Couture. Crafted locally, with sustainable materials or waste material, we push for a change through our environmentally-conscious designs. 

We have collaborated with major brands like Samsung, Netflix, and other innovative platforms to remodel how fashion can seen and perceived. At the moment our brand is focusing on producing its own leather alternative through a start-up initiative.
