Timeless pieces for people who live life fully
Our name evokes the senses of the Mediterranean – the beauty of the gently lapping azure waves and the joy of local cuisine. Inspired by this beautiful region, we create ethically made wardrobe essentials that are both stylish and functional, for whatever adventure you choose to embark on!
Pieces designed for every age & figure
Our pieces are designed for you to make your own. Our clothes are for real people with real bodies. Our designs feature generous cuts and are often adjustable with long tie belts, flattering details and elasticated waists so that they are both comfortable and customisable. The classic styles also mean that they look as good on a 30-year-old as they do a 60-year-old. After all, great style is timeless!
Garments that respect people, planet and tradition
We believe fashion should be fair, which is why everything we produce is created from traceable sustainable materials, in factories with safe working conditions who pay their workers fair salaries and then sold on to you for fair prices.
We manufacture in small batches to reduce stock wastage and always produce closest to the natural source of our materials to minimise the carbon footprint each item has before making its way to you. Our core material – linen – is sourced from Europe’s largest linen producers Orsha Linen Mill, who have been weaving flax for textiles for almost 90 years.
Linen is also one of the most sustainable fabrics available: flax is a resilient plant that requires natural rain fall, no irrigation and 2,500 litres less water than making the same item in cotton would! Our linen is EUROPEAN FLAX® certified, representing the highest environmental and workplace standards for textile production. We are also collaborating with a manufacturer to create a knitwear fabric from a flax fibre by-product to further reduce waste.
Our collections take inspiration from the stylish men and women of Italy, Greece, Morocco and the whole of the Mediterranean, who have understood the countless benefits of linen for centuries – and tailor it perfectly to flatter all ages and bodies.
Style is more important to us than trends, and we design with consideration for both the environmental impact and the longevity of our pieces. We are a non-political small business on a mission to bring you sustainably made, beautiful clothing with a dose of Mediterranean spirit to make for summer and holiday dressing effortless. If you have any questions for us, please do get in touch.
100% Natural Linen
Our fabrics are produced in Belarus from the stalks of the flax plants that are native there. Here they are refined, dyed and softened before being woven into beautiful easy to care for fabrics that are skin kind and won’t shrink after washing. This is all done without causing any environmental harm.
