Minimalist style, maximum function
Crafted from our very core: considered design, community listening, ethical sourcing in Kyrgyzstan, and local manufacturing in the Czech republic.
Objects for conscious living
A collection of ethical materials and timeless designs that honour the people who make them and the places they’re made.
Rethinking the entire process. You have our word.
Ethically sourced materials
We use ethical sourcing as a ground-up approach to obtaining materials. That means that we trace every material down to it’s origin, ensuring direct-trade practices, fair pay and safe working conditions along the way.
We're customer-funded, proudly bootstrapped, and they're the only folks we answer to. We don't put hyper-growth and intrusive targeted ads above privacy. That's why you don't see the cookie banner; we do not collect marketing cookies.
Have you ever dug into how your clothes and accessories were made? We did. That's why we provide a material breakdown for every product. Don't take our word for it; check it yourself, open any product and scroll down.
We produce sustainably, so we do not use any adhesives, pesticides, solvents, or chemicals for manufacturing or material processing.
Local manufacturing in Prague
We design responsible and timeless designs, stripped of unnecessary complexities and simple by construction. Every piece is handcrafted and unique.
Helping communities in Kyrgyzstan
We are committed to donating 1% of every sale to protect the environment and help unserved communities thrive in places where we sourced our materials.
