In our attempt to support local economy, we use upcycled garments made of stock material proceeding from local factories. All of our fabrics are lightweight and soft, yet resilient and durable, making our designs the perfect match for a healthy and active lifestyle.

We design beautiful easy-to-wear clothing made from quality natural and organic fabrics. Designed by Snow and made ethically by producers we know and trust. Currently we work with two women’s cooperatives that are both fair trade certified by the WFTO. The cooperatives provide women with training, education and work, empowering them to move themselves and their children forward and out of the world of poverty. Inspired by the things that matter to me most, since 2008 we have been going against the trend of using cheap synthetic materials to make our clothes. We know we could make our clothes cheaper by using these materials but then they just won’t be the same.
