Modularity and adjustability
Our models are based on the concept of modularity. The same item is designed to be worn in different ways just adjusting the buttons and straps. This is also born from the DNA of the brand to make life easier, so for example the. Same shirt can look smart in the office but can also turn into a comfy casual look or a party dress with just adjusting few elements.
We look into rethinking the basics such as a white shirt or a black dress and adding to this a high quality of stitching and selection of quality fabrics makes our fashion pieces timeless, as they never go out of fashion. The other point is that the details that help to adjust the garments, make them timeless also in terms that there will be no need to buy a new item if one loses or gains weight.
We use exclusively biodegradable fabrics such as cotton, linen and other natural fibers. Secondly, we source deadstock fabrics from big factories and this helps to meet our goal of being a responsible brand and avoiding pushing any production of fabric that is hazardous for the planet, on contrary we thrive to utilize the waste, that has been already produced but not utilized for some reason. A we grow further we plan to use organic and recycled fabrics.
We make our garment in Armenia using the craftsmanship that Armenia has been always strong in. We know every woman who makes clothes for us by name, we constantly work on the development of their skills and we care about assuring best working conditions for them. We try to engage women who have family constrains and therefore are limited in their job opportunities. We have therefore created a production cycle where these women can work partially from home, where we create working conditions for them and provide them with all necessary tools and machinery.
