It started as an inside joke, a short funny feud between two good friends trying to outdo each other, trying to see who had the boldness to get away wearing ever more eccentric articles on our otherwise casual appearance. Although the feud didn’t last long, the thirst to express ourselves, to express the craziness we are all so used to hold inside, persisted. So we decided to give it try, to find something so simple, so versatile, and so unique that seizes being a demanding part of our appearance and rather becomes a separate accessory, a unique form of communication.
So here we are, almost a year later, after innumerable hurdles and hinderances, finally holding a product in our hands that we are truly proud of. A product whose simple appearance hides an incredibly deep heritage, an exceptionally high quality, and a truly unique story: Made carefully by hand in the northern Greek town of Soufli, from the finest natural silk -a tradition that goes back to antiquity-, it is proudly decorated from artists across the world. The 12 unique artworks featured on our cloths were painstakingly selected out of 45,000 other textile patterns by us. Every single box contains the story behind the art and the artist, the process and inspiration that brought it to existence.
We are now traveling around the world selling our beloved cloths on this modest little stand. We are humbled by the overwhelmingly good words we hear from strangers on the street. As we are only producing limited batches for now, we are trying to gage the reactions of people who can touch it and feel it. But don’t be disheartened, we still send them over mail and courier to friends all over the world. Try one and we promise you won’t be disappointed. Hopefully we will see you in your city and you’ll come say hi. You can currently find us in London, planning trips to Berlin, Stockholm, and NYC soon (check our Twitter feed for updates)
