The idea of sustainability lies at the heart of London-based designer Ümran Aysan's collection. Following Aysan's personal standpoint in aesthetics and ethics, the brand appreciates sustainability as implicated on all phases of her collections. Aysan's perception of self-identity as a world-citizen is strongly reflected upon her brand.
These stunning pieces are embellished with large, handmade needle Lace panels. Needle lace is an ancient technique which is incredibly dear to founder Ümran Aysan's heritage. There are no fixed patterns; the maker improvises according what she feels at that very moment, be it wishing good for the future or coming into terms with the past. It's a practice of expression through the lace patterns. The silk kaftan has an incredibly simplistic needle lace panel; the cotton voile kaftans feature a more traditional, more detailed needle lace. The fabric fibre is sourced from certified organic cotton mills in India and the fabric is then made in Turkey.
In her quest towards a more humane and beautiful world, Ümran Aysan promotes ethical and artisanal works over the wider, long-term effects of fast fashion. Taking into consideration universal environmental concerns into the production process, Aysan primarily strives to maintain an eco-friendly collection by minimising carbon footprint. In order to reflect the brand's value to its conscious customers and support for good trade, the brand holds a policy of full transparency. Sourced ethically and detailed locally, each piece of Ümran Aysan collection is enriched by talented hands around the world.
Working in collaboration with local artisans and craftsmen from different countries, she combines their inherited handiwork skills with her pure, contemporary signature. Aysan's dedication to ethical fashion lies not just in ensuring the improvement the livelihood of the artisan communities, but also in the idea of passing down the artisanal heritage to next generations.
Featuring a bold floral print in multi-coloured hues, the open fronted kimono jacket is inspired by the foliage of the ancient Caria region; the inspiration behind this collection. The silk kimono is made using 100% silk, with the fibre for the lace sourced from Turkey and the fabric made in Turkey. Trimmed with minimal needle lace and finished with hidden side pockets, it is a glamorous and guilt-free suitcase staple. Cut from cotton voile, the relaxed silhouette of the black kaftan dress features side slits and a V-neck and back. The dress is edged by intricate needle lace, handwoven in Turkey by local artisans.
As a sign of Ümran Aysan's commitment to sustainability, quality and craftsmanship, the prestigious brand has been awarded the Butterfly Mark, powered by Positive Luxury. The award of the Butterfly Mark recognises Ümran Aysan's devotion to producing beautiful, high quality products with sustainability at the heart of every step.
