We Are Makers
Our unique innovation: a merge of craftsmanship with modern technology creates one of a kind garments where hand stitching and complex needlework goes hand in hand with linework by machine.
We are ethical makers – fair play and fair pay-makers achieving sustainability through a consistently excellent personnel policy: people first. 27 out of 28 team members are women – and we truly believe that women supporting women and leveling up together is what makes us the best there is.
*ethical atelier= quality in all aspects of business from how we manage our team, to salaries, working conditions, opportunities, and how we by a relatively flat structure make sure that all our staff are treated with love and respect.
We believe in sustainability in the textile industry.
