The textile studio is dedicated to design and produce in Berlin accessories, clothes & Home Deco. Everything is designed and handmade by me and the materials I use have to be the less chemical possible and I only work with natural fibers. The use of plastic or polyester is not part of our materials.
It is important for me to produce items with quality that are over all functional and durable. This is core in the values of the project which makes us part of the ideology always in favor of the ecosystem and ecology avoiding the mass production.
The least the world needs is another project that causes more pollution, that is why making durable functional items that users can also wash and re-use is what gave me the encouragement to start my project from zero.- Ana Julia
INTRODUCING ANA JULIA
I studied Architecture and Visual Arts in University. I always loved photography, literature and cinema which they were always channels to canalize m
y creativity. My family comes from Italy and Austria, although they always spoke Italian more than German. Both my grandmothers are experts in sewing and knitting. I always felt a deep respect and admiration towards them.
To learn the secrets for a better sew was always an adorable gift I got from my grandmothers. To pay attention to details, to make things the best way possible always and help others to do so too.
I have lived in Germany for some years now, and this gave me lots of learnings. The one that is helping me big time is that we should have a flexible long term plan with our projects and lives knowing that we belong to a community. To have a wider view and a contemplation about others made me realize the importance of our everyday’s actions. And that is the story amigos, to design helping others have something made with care that they will not see everywhere else and that they can use for long having lots of adventures with it.What I love about my label is the diversity of countries where my fabrics come from, I mix everything in Berlin and it is shipped around the globe.
