Thanks to your contributions we have reached the first objective. If we get the new challenge we will offer you (both those who are already patrons and those who have not yet) new colors for the polo and poplin collar shirt. Soon we will be able to give you more information. Stay tuned!
WHO WE ARE
GRAPE is a high end sustainable menswear project. We are designers of our collections. We have ideas, values and resolution.
GRAPE is a team formed by Marc Carreras (CEO), Maya Fernández (Graphic Design) and Lluna Albert (Product Design). A team that decides to create a brand to design and produce menswear, with social and environmental responsibility like the one they would like to find in stores.
GRAPE is the consequence of loving the planet and believing in the human being. With optimism, cause and action.
ANOTHER FASHION IS POSSIBLE
The field of men fashion motivates and traps us. Man has always had fewer options where to choose designer clothes and quality. If he is also a committed man who would like to find some of the values for which he fights in the clothes he dresses without losing in style, freshness or elegance, then that man is our man and this brand is his.
We make our collections with passion, authenticity and a lot of professionalism. We make our garments with certified organic fabrics (GOTS, OCS Blended, OCS 100, Oeko tex), we print without chemical or toxic and we count with local workshops for the productions we make, which allows us to closely and carefully follow up the finishing of every detail as well as to establish human and friendly ties with the people who work behind each garment for us and for you.
We design and produce two annual collections. We simmer the whole process and take care of all the production. No haste, things well done require time. The idea is to come to you with a garment made with care and worked with love. A garment whose value cannot be measured in euros only.
Nowadays it is still "complicated" to be sustainable in food, clothing, cosmetics, etc. The capitalist economy is at the service of the financial and social model that enriches business models at the cost of very bad practices and worse results. We do not want to give up creating elegant, high quality and versatile clothes in both fabrics and designs. Those clothes you would like to wear and that also carries the stamp of sustainability as an added value.
WHY A VERKAMI?
This Verkami has to do with the continuity and growth of a project based on good practices. We want to change the way we produce and sell the clothes we like best, without environmental or human costs.
We want to make sure that this bet counts on your support.
Many of you already know the costs of the textile production chain, the imperatives of the fashion world and the unfair competition of part of the multinationals of the sector in front of a creative and small company with values as the our.
It is difficult to know how to communicate everything that we do but we do not want to miss the opportunity to carry out an exercise of transparency with you in this Verkami.
All this is about numbers, but also about people, challenges, dreams and effort.
Rewards are a way to return the support to all those who believe in us: making fashion, creating a project and taking care of the future. We are part of a new way of understanding the world, where big investors are not the only alternative; we bet on the regular people who collaborate with their bit, making from something difficult, something possible.
WHAT ARE YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS GOING TO?
In July 2016 we presented our first collection of 25 pieces for spring/summer 2017 at the fair INNATEX in Frankfurt which was warmly received by the public, press and organization.
We want to raise the necessary funds to launch a first production of this collection. Through this funding campaign we will be able to produce a limited number of garments that will alive the collection and will suppose the start-up of the brand in the market, both nationally and internationally.
For each garment a patron supports we can finance 50% of the cost of production of an extra equal garment.
Remember that if we do not reach the goal we will not receive anything and your contributions will be returned to you.
