All pieces are handmade and 100% produced in Greece, in a small, specialised factory.
We support local manufacturers, producers and craftsmen.

All components are sourced from factories within Europe that adhere to high standards of production and ensure safe and fair working environments for their employees.

MATERIALS & WASTE
The designs utilise luxury Italian and Greek fabrics, partnered with complex construction and considered details.
