FASHION exclusive
Posted in fashion, homewares February 29th, 2008 by piablog

I fell in love just the other day: the moment I laid eyes on this range my heart skipped a beat, and I completely went weak in the knees when I touched the garments. The more I found out about the designs and company profile, the more my heart fluttered. This Danish fashion designer gets the enhance the everyday hallmark for being everything we want in a fashion label.

Introducing, AYMARA

“in this modern, transient world, everything is quickly discarded. i wanted to create a product that endures, not just in time, but also in people’s hearts”. Maria Høgh Heilmann, fashion designer AYMARA

AYMARA is named after the original Bolivian people and their language, Aymará. This exclusive fashion company meets our demands as the modern, conscientious consumer with their stunning, high quality garments wrapped in good conscience.

”The vision for our collections for women, infants and home is to create original, but classic designs in such authentic and durable materials so they can last many seasons. When we combine this vision with fair trade principles, the result is authentic sustainability.” Trine Fyhr for AYMARA

AYMARA is part of a developing project in Bolivia – the first Danish fashion label to introduce the Llama fibre (called cashlama) and to create awareness of Bolivia and their exclusive products. Read more about AYMARA right here.

My wardrobe has been in serious need of refreshing and this is exactly what I was looking for – I am going for the wrap cardigans, and that top in the first image has my name on it. Oh who am I kidding, I cannot take a favourite item here, I mean, look at those long johns! I also want the entire homeware range you see above. AYMARA, I’m so glad I found you.

    I love to work on vintage pages and this was my big project for last year.

    I also love it that the brand collaborates with people in Bolivia to stimulate development.

    I thought you girls would love it too, I’m so glad! Sofia, I can see they are not available in France, I cannot imagine why! I will ask them next time i speak with them, perhaps there is a boutique in Paris not yet put on the website, I’ll let you know. I’ve had a look at your vintage page work, I LOVE them, they are soooooo beautiful, you are so talented!

    hi…just found your blog and i love it. i was thinking as i read that you will not travel to tibet…that you might consider traveling to bolivia. there are some beautiful similarities to the himalayas in the high andes. thanks for sharing all your beautiful photos.

    The collection is stunning but the sad fact is that if you look for quality fibre (say llama or alpaca) in Bolivia you will only find acrylic. Which means that most of the good fibre is exported, probably to Europe, North America and Australia.

    We travelled to Bolivia a couple of weeks ago and it was frustrating not to find one single skein of pure alpaca wool. It´s just sad that the best goods are for export and locals don´t get to enjoy them.

    On the other hand, raising awareness for purchasing long-lasting quality items that go beyond “this year´s must-haves” is a great thing in itself.

    i have to admit the clothing looks great. however being ayamaran, i’m confused as to how this is helping us. in all honesty i’m a little offended.. “introducing aymara”. buying local goods exporting etc.. maybe thats how you feel you’re helping out.

    i’m tired and i’m sure i’m not making much sense. the photos look great. i won’t ever check this again. i only came across it by mere chance. sorry if i felt offended.

    There’s just something about the cloths that is really unique. They are simple patterns but they look so real.
