We are a Finnish design house with ready-to-wear collections for women and a home line, Samuji Koti, which brings together traditional houseware from different regions and cultures. Our work focuses on design and consulting, and is based on the values we hold dear in everyday life: a love of necessary things, simple functionality, and kindness. Our ambition is to produce timeless and sustainable design that serves a purpose yet carries a story. The collections are sold in our own stores in Helsinki and New York, our online store, and through selected stockists in Europe, Asia and America.
Post-Imperial is a menswear brand with a strong sense of optimism for the future and a focus on color, pattern and process. Their fabrics are treated in Nigeria through a process called Adire.- a rare hand dyeing process developed by the Yorubas in the Southwest region of Nigeria. Prior to dyeing, the artist hand paints patterns using a cassava starch or wax base that acts as the resist dye. The painted fabric is then dipped in a vat of dye, and then treated and rewashed in hot water. All fabrics are shipped to our factory in New York where we cut and sew our products. The goal is to always design for now by shaping cultural concepts through a modern perspective.
Daniela Jacobs, Parsons graduate and the designer behind ARC, is inspired by colors, textures, shapes and sounds found in nature. From jewelry to home objects, her collection explores and experiments with wearable and functional sculpture. She sees ARC as a concept, not product, and at its core, a body of work that seeks to encourage mindfulness and individual creative expression. Made primarily of porcelain and metal, her pieces are seasonless and bold in their simplicity.
