DeNovembre is a fashion accessories brand specializing in beautifully colored silk and wool scarves.

DeNovembre now works in partnership with Jabbar for the coloring aspects of production. Beyond our love of DeNovembre’s organic designs, it was the up-cycling that made us see them as a perfect partner for Ryze. They put so much passion into crafting fabrics that they cannot bare to waste even a centimeter of material. A sentiment that inspires us to examine waste in our own lives.

Feeling that her real expertise is in craftsmanship, Cristina spends a good deal of time and effort with every single piece she makes. The hard work is apparent in her final products and she says that she takes a great deal of enjoyment from immersing herself in what she does.

ZAND-EROVER
Made in Amsterdam, Netherlands

Zand-erover is a Dutch label formed by Visser sisters, Sandy and Shelly. After graduating at a styling academy, Sandy wanted to continue to translate her fondness of nature into minimalist design. Eventually this culminated in a style which incorporates natural elements, forms, textures and colors into deliberate simplicity. Naturally simple, that is what Zand-erover is about. The first ideas for a new design initiate with a simple piece of paper, folded into different shapes and eventually create products varying from bags, jewelry and accessories. The materials used are pure, and are chosen for their ability to visibly react when used.
