Go conscious! A vegan lifestyle goes beyond eating healthy - the clothes, accessories and beauty products that we all use everyday have also a great impact on our planet. With this in mind SANIKAI was born; Sanaz Akaouf as the designer and Kai Wasser as the business mind launched their first collection this spring. Their philosophy "to support the rights of people and animals and treat our environment with care" is something we share. I met them in a business start-up fair and instantly fell in love with the brand! After a good talk the idea of shooting their clothes for my blog came to life. I hope you can get inspired, and look for more environmental friendly products to add to your lifestyle.
Sanikai is inspired by exotic nature with a mix of urban style, clear cuts, conspicuous details and quality fabrics. But most important vegan, ecological and fair! Principles Sanikai has applied to their product supply chain, which is all hand made in Switzerland.
"We strictly avoid the use of fur, leather, wool, silk, pearls, horn, mother-of-pearl, down feather or any other animal-related products." Vegan, kind to the environment and produced fairly Sanikai uses organic Cotton, organic Linen Hemp, Recycled Polyester, Cotton off-cuts from controlled cultivation.
"Our sewing threads are recycled from old PET bottles and organic cotton thread. We try to avoid zips and for this reason the majority of our clothing is with buttons." The buttons are made from coconut shell!
"In short, Sanikai cares for the future. The next generation should also enjoy clean water, fresh air and experience the joy in nature." Alongside their clothing label they stock nail polish from Will Byron Bay (vegan), colorful socks from Minga Berlin (vegan, GOTS), Eco-Bamboo’s toothbrushes (vegan) Isecta Shoes, (vegan, recycled for PET) and more vegan products.
