Are you still in vacation mood? Then this brand might be the inspiration you need for your end-of-summer wardrobe. We’re talking breezy resort wear – kaftans, tunics, dresses – made from natural fabrics like organic GOTS certified cotton, organic “Peace” silk and linen, created with people and planet in mind. At A Perfect Nomad, they call it “ethical luxury”.
The brand was founded by British designer Frances Clark, who splits her time between London and Ibiza – the Mediterranean island that has no doubt influenced the brand aesthetics in a major way. Her flowy and stylishly bohemian pieces make a perfect gateway into the relaxed, romantic and free-spirited version of yourself that only comes out during holidays (true?), and you gotta love the feeling; the freedom…
The designer says her dream and ambition is to “create the perfect holiday wardrobe that also holds beautiful values within its threads, protecting our earth, caring for our people and making a positive impact through charitable projects.” Her line is made ethically in close collaboration with communities of artisans that are given fair wages and employment, and who make the garments completely by hand using traditional techniques.
Also, having partnered up with women’s empowerment charity IMPACT, 10% of the profit from each garment goes towards setting up learning centers in economically disadvantaged communities in India.
A Perfect Nomad source their materials and manufacture their products through a network of small-scale suppliers located around the world, and aim to create a positive impact for everyone involved – as well as for the environment. Favoring natural, organic fibers as well as new alternative materials, cutting edge technology and circularity, they’ve eliminated the use of synthetics, plastics, leather and fur, truly making “a collection for the conscious spirit”. Are you one?
