I saw these beautifully classic designs by Neemic, Beijing on Not Just A Label (NJAL) this week. Do take a detour across there to view more of Neemic’s range. Yummy, no?
Not previously a design label I am familiar with, I clicked across to Neemic’s own website – which does sell and ship – to read more:
NEEMIC is a designer brand initiated in 2011 by Amihan Zemp and Hans Martin Galliker with three visions at heart: Creating beautiful design, making the industry more sustainable and providing a platform for artistic exchange. All NEEMIC pieces are designed and made in Beijing.
NEEMIC design is quiet and understated, yet expressive and deliberate. Clean and simple cuts underline the beauty and texture of precious natural materials. Often oversized and casual, the pieces generate a feeling of unpretentiousness and inner comfort. Great care is given to details and quality finishing.
NEEMIC commits to responsible use of resources. We source predominantly leftover materials from the high-end fashion industry and GOTS certified organic fabrics. NEEMIC actively facilitates a more sustainable industry as co-founder of the Hong Kong organic textile association and AgraChina, a network to promote organic agriculture in China.
Sustainability also has a social dimension. We partner with local tailors and emphasize fair conditions for all stakeholders. NEEMIC collaborates with Summerwood, using organic fabrics that are hand-woven by traditional communities in China, preserving old techniques and social structures.
NEEMIC acts as a creative platform, fostering both local community and international exchange. Through events and collaborations, it brings together brilliant minds from fashion, video, fotography, performance, and other arts.
Sounds good, looks good, with generous sizing in many designs. Worth making a note for future reference, I think …
