A different shopping experience

We want to give you a different shopping experience: understand the process of how our clothes are created, and a transparency on the garments we are choosing to make them (certification such as OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100).

The vintage items we are proposing are not only selected for their uniqueness and timeless aspect, but they are as well part of a reusable and conscious process.

The knitted garments are thoroughly handmade by people who spent hours on each pieces.

They are long lasting and heritage pieces: Cherished hand-knits linking generations.
