Presentation of Aatise team

Two Eco Fashion Activists who have challenged themselves to offer ethical, sustainable and beautiful clothing. It all starts with a shared passion for fashion. Since childhood, this universe has inspired us and fulled our imagination. Surrounded by our mothers and grandmothers who sewed their own clothes, we sailed between the scraps of cloth, the threads and the needles and imagined the clothes we would wear, once grown up. Creations that would say something about us and our aspirations.

As adults, our love for beautiful outfits has remained fully intact. But dealing with beauty and fashion has brought new and more concrete challenges.

How can we continue to wear clothing that suits us, whose production process does not meet our values?

How can we live our passion for fashion and respect local know-how without slandering our commitment to an environmentally responsible world ? We thought about the child in us who wanted to make beautiful clothes. We told him about today's fashion, it's excess and it's contradictions.

Our inner child asked if that meant she had to stop dreaming and we did not have the heart to say yes. Instead, we told her: better than that, that we would find a solution. In order not to disappoint this child, we founded Aatise.

For her and for all those who have remained children at heart, and who do not want to give up their dreams!

Founder of the Aatise-Project, I have been working in the fashion world for more than 30 years as a textile engineer. When it became clear to me that not everything in the fashion industry could continue in the future as it had for the last 20 years, I decided to do everything in my power to produce and offer creations and clothing that matched my values.

Nothing can motivate me more than this challenge.
