Small brands you should check out

   I am almost always on Instagram, so sometimes I look around for interesting brands or influencers. These are some brands that I find interesting and most of them are eco-friendly and sustainable. They are mostly jewelry brands, but there are also some clothing and accessories ones. So, let’s start:

  1 Attire– one of my favorite influencers created this brand very recently, so you should definitely check it out. It’s eco-friendly, ethical, zero polyester brand, and the production is based in Portugal and Italy. I will put the links to both the brand and the founder, but before I want to tell you a bit about what and why Xenia, the founder of Attire, decided to start this brand. She is a pretty famous influencer, she goes to all sorts of events, Fashion Weeks, etc. But she said she felt the need to do something more meaningful. Also, she didn’t really like the way other big brands produce the clothes. So she decided to do a totally transparent brand, where you know what you pay for, where the materials come from and how they are created. I sincerely respect her and how she chose to run this business. I am looking forward to buying an item from her collection. If you want to find out more about the brand and Xenia and/or her brand, in the about section on the Attire website, she explains on a deeper level   and in a more detailed way about everything I just told you.

    2 Revived Uk– the way this brand works is: they find these really rare vintage designer pieces, which they use to create new,sustainable and high quality jewelry. The only downside to this is that, because these designer pieces are so expensive, they are also really limited. I really like the fact that they create these necklaces that make you feel like you just bought something from that really famous brand and you are literally wearing a piece of history. That one little keychain that they turned into a necklace could have belonged to anyone and even if you don’t know it, it carries a story and I think that is amazing and unique. I am going to leave the link to their website and Instagram below.

   3 Pura Vida Bracelets– this isn’t really a small business because it has grown a lot in the last year or so, but I think it’s a great brand and I found the story behind it very interesting.It all started when the two founders of this brand went on a trip to Costa Rica and found two locals, who were making these very colorful bracelets, but who also were really struggling financially. So Griffin and Paul(the founders of Pura Vida) asked for 400 bracelets they can take back to San Diego. In San Diego, they went to a shop and asked to sell their bracelets there. They sold so fast, that Paul and Griffin decided to make this into a business. So now, they support over 800 artisanals all around the globe by selling their work online and they also opened a few shops around the world where they sell all of their designs. This is one of my favorite brands to support, so if you can’t buy from them, just share it. I will also put their links below.

   4 Naked Wolfe– this brand was created by a family of six where two of the siblings are the creative directors. They are a footwear brand, founded because they felt there was a gap in the footwear market. So they created on-trend fashion styles and a luxury-designer quality but at an affordable price. They work so that they can put new designs out every week and their shoes are hand-made in specialized production facilities. I think this could become one of the really popular brands. Their designs are so pretty and I really want to buy a pair. As you got used to by now, I’m gonna put the links below.

The Kooples

The Kooples 

This week I traveled to Spain for medical reasons, but I also got to shop and look around. Most of the shops, monuments and touristic spots were closed. While window shopping, I saw this interesting shop called ‘The Kooples’. I ended up buying this stunning dress and a belt to match. When I got to the hotel, I decided to search it up since I had never heard about it, but it had all of these really nice things that intrigued me. 

The Kooples is a high-end French accessible luxury brand, founded in 2008 by brothers Alexandre, Laurent and Raphaël Elicha. In my opinion it has this rock/grunge but also girly look. It’s not very famous, I don’t really understand why, because the clothing and accessories they sell are such good quality and are absolutely stunning. I am going to add some pictures of their designs. Please do let me know what you think.

I also decided that from now on I am going to write posts about more of these lesser known brands that I think deserve more recognition. 

Hope you have a great day,
