Building the Future,
Honouring the Past

Our compromise has always been the same. Started with our grandparents, from generation to generation, we aim to deliver the most beautiful and well crafted clothes, in a short lead-time, being always kind to our people and planet. We believe in a fair world, and amongst all the things, we believe that fashion should be beautiful from inside out.

This is what we stand for.

Being a part of one of the most polluting industries in the world, makes us wonder how we can improve our practises. Our values led us to adopt internationally recognised standards to assure the making of our garments will actively reduce the ecological footprint of our activity. Not yet satisfied, we are working to be carbon neutral factory in ten years, producing clean energy, reducing our waste and reforesting areas nearby.

Every brand, every garment you buy, brings to you his own story. And we want to make sure that ours is something worths telling.
