BRAND: RIYKA

I have written about London brand Riyka before - they are a husband and wife team (Rebecca and Vedran) who make super cool, contemporary clothes in a sustainable and ethical way using reclaimed, organic and (where possible) British made fabrics.

All the clothes are designed in the UK and are made in a fair-wage, sustainable, atelier in Bulgaria. Riyka's designs are timeless, bold, confident and classic and do not follow trends. Their latest collection includes some super cool oversized dresses and interesting, flattering tops.

I love Riyka - it's so refreshing to discover brands and wear things that have been created by talented people with integrality, passion and with a strong belief and confidence in what they are doing - and because you can see and feel it in the clothes.

BRAND: RIYKA

I recently wore this awesome sweatshirt from a brand called RIYKA.  Founded by a super creative husband & wife team Riyka is ethical and sustainable and awesome.

Here is what Rebecca (the wife) thinks we need to know about RIYKA:

NAME OF BRAND/COMPANY: RIYKA

DATE IT WAS FOUNDED: 2012

BY WHOM IT WAS FOUNDED: Rebecca Johnson & Vedran Kulic (husband and wife)

WHY WAS IT CREATED: We felt that we needed a place to express our creativity, and what we have to say about the world.

WHAT WE NEED TO KNOW ABOUT YOUR BRAND: We strive to create sustainably, using ethical fabrics as much as possible, and also creating timeless fashion, trying to avoid the fast fashion trend race.

WHAT WE SHOULD BUY FROM YOU: Our best selling Yaye jumper, which we bring back every season, the new season April dress, and my favourite Billy jumper.
