I started sewing at the age of 7. I think the entire 22yrs in mass market industry to follow, I had been searching to get back to the art of design and being hands on. I've had years of experience now in price point, witnessing the wasteful and harmful practice of this industry. Nothing mattered but to get the lowest price. I knew it was time to get out and invest in something I truly believed in, building closer relationships with the customer and any other like-minded communities. Sooo, I took a huge leap of faith and left that industry to start AIYIA. I hope that you love it, connect to it -and the message behind the product.
All AIYIA product is not just made of sustainable raw material (recycled cotton or polyester) which still require a harmful production process.
Our products are made from deadstock fabric, waste materials, vintage and thrift fabrics. We are cutting out unnecessary production and therefore saving fabric that would otherwise be tossed into landfills. this means 0% environment impact! No making fabric or waste at all!
*Due to the nature of the limited raw material resource availability, all items are limited edition or one of a kind.
*All capsules will stand behind the same values in different ways, I hope to share ALL of the ways I can find that we can reduce waste.
*We will also be available for repairs and directing you to the nearest apparel Recycling facility.
