Our Woven Brands
Rachelle and Ziyo started the amente in 2019 based in Los Angeles together after working in the fashion industry for many years. Their mission is to create a brand that is a timeless, long lasting and eco-friendly brand that has a responsibility to the fashion world. Creating collections with fewer styles that don’t follow trends but instead can be worn over years and not be throw-away trends.
The amente focuses on using sustainable fabrics in loose, comfortable feminine shapes. They curate collections season to season with ease in mind, and in a timeless manner.
This is accomplished by our sustainable, plant-based fabrics, and immaculate finishings on the inside of our pieces which were consciously crafted to last through countless wears and washes.
PROJECT AJ117, Denmark
Melting together a bunch of creative people in a small house at the Copenhagen Freeport area in 2011, the idea of creating a 'state of mind' brand with timeless and everyday essentials with a casual and cool look was formed.
The brand name came with the idea to create a common new project, location was in the house number 117 – and the AJ letters came from the two companies involved. Starting the brand we felt we needed to go back to 'Made in Europe,' here we could get the best technicians and workmanship for the look we wanted.
Still located in Copenhagen with an outstandingly beautiful showroom in an old factory, we combine the best of Scandinavian Design traditions and simplicity with the Italian workmanship and finishings.
Having worn this brand for over 8 years we thought it only right to bring this wearable but stylish brand to our customers.

(We do not have a sustainable profile as such, we have a responsible profile. That means we will not be able to send certificates etc...
DK14+dk18 is done in organic cotton fabric, but it is not GOTS certified, bcs we would have to add 1 month to our delivery if we should do that...and same for dk18. So of course our products are not marked with GOTS stamps either.
By responsible we mean, we think about how we ship (by SEA and by RAIL) rather than by air. We re-use old boxes for packing to shops instead of using new ones. We do as few shipments as possible. We mainly produce to order, rather than to stock etc...We aim to make products primarily in natural fabrics and using more and more fabrics like Tencel and modal which use less water when finished than regular viscose and that can last for several season, both design and quality wise..We only use synthetic fabric for the nylon jackets, very rarely polyester fabrics or yarns. Our profile is slow fashion.)

For HUMANOID sustainability is not a choice, a trend, it's an obvious necessity.
We are founded in 1981 (family company) and we are built on the principle of creating and consuming fashion consciously. We have, and will always be committed to integrating sustainable and responsible business practices throughout the brand, with the aim to reduce our ecological footprint while maximizing our positive social impact. We produce timeless designs that seemingly flow from season to season, year after year. Items that are designed to stand the test of time, both in design and make!
Really important for us;
At the starting point of each design are the fabrics and the choices we make for using them. We always look for sustainable alternatives such as organic or recycled fabrics. When it comes to selecting the right fabrics we keep in mind the impact they have on our environment and local communities.
When choosing our fabrics we focus on different sustainability aspects such as blended fabrics' characteristics vs. recyclability, the footprint of natural vs. synthetic fabrics, and many more. This helps us choose materials such as organic cotton and tencel, certified linen and certified wool. We also research and experiment with new materials such as hemp and bamboo. When it comes to the dyeing process we focus on environmentally friendly dyes and washings.
Really proud to say;
Working with most of our suppliers for several decades! helps us create transparency. Whether it's supporting local craftsmen or staying socially responsible each of our partners are as committed as we are.
Since its creation HUMANOID has always used close to home production facilities such as local craftsmen and ateliers. When it comes to larger partners within our supply chain we focus on EU production facilities (about 80% of our production is done in the EU). These partners are in accordance with EU environmental and working conditions legislation (certified) and checked on a regular basis. Together we strive for both an environmental and socially responsible supply chain.
We still work with local craftsmen in both the Netherlands (such as the suppliers for our bags and leather belts) and abroad (such as India). When working with local craftsmen we aim to create sustainable partnerships that are fair to all involved and have a positive impact on the world.

BY EDE, UK
It was my own personal experience of being a consumer for both natural skincare and aromatherapy products that led me to launching ede. I first began formulating my own natural skincare products to cure my acne in my early 20s and I found a natural progression towards aromatherapy happened through self help in dealing with anxiety. Wellness and particularly self-care have always been at the forefront of my mind for many years.
With that ede became a skincare and wellness project with a mission to give aromatherapy an identity in the modern age. Our lifestyles, thoughts and feelings have evolved since the prehistoric beginnings of aromatherapy.
How we feel in our mind and body shows on our skin. We make plant-based skincare and aromatherapy tools to help us connect deeper to ourselves and our wellbeing through skincare, self care rituals and wellbeing tools. We believe in only using the best ingredients in our products which is why the ede collection is 100% organic, natural, vegan and cruelty-free.
