We believe an object can elevate both beholder and maker. In a world of mass-produced goods, we offer artisan-made home and apparel crafted in fair-trade environments from around the globe. We strive to live fully, slow down to enjoy life’s little luxuries, and choose everyday to create a world connecting maker, owner and earth.
The word "ikikiz" means "two girls" in Turkish, which symbolizes the two female leaders behind the innovative sustainable fashion brand Ikikiz: Elvan and Meral. Pokoloko and Ikikiz have joined together in a shared mission to rethink your apparel. To create style that allows you to be yourself in every way while supporting healthy human and environmental systems.
Established in Turkey in 2012, and working amidst one of the most wasteful industries on the planet, Ikikiz focuses on natural materials, timeless design, and long-lasting craftsmanship. They specialize in the beautiful garment-dying technique, which means the fabric of the garment is cut and sewn, then dyed and washed (instead of being dyed then sewn). This creates a truly unique, vintage, pastel color palette.
Ikikiz stands in the face of surreal body standards and fast fashion, and represents our ability to love ourselves and respect our natural environment. Elvan and Meral invite you to re-imagine your clothes and be true to yourself. Their work is responsibly-made garments for your evolving, conscious life.
"We want to accompany you
on your unending journey to be
the best version of yourself."
