Made in Barcelona, Spain

Andrea Viêntëc came to us through some mutual friends in Barcelona. Right away, we were interested in her focus on headwear because we’ve always found it difficult to look cool with hats or scarves. That’s not the case with Andrea’s pieces, which do a great job of adding personality to one’s look of the day. Lately, she’s been expanding beyond headwear to jewelry and other made-to-measure works, all with a strong devotion to traditional millinery techniques and time demanding craftsmanship. We appreciate her integrity as much as we like how we look in everything she makes.

 

 

BLUEBERRIES

This amazing collection is 3D printed from brass and then gold plated by hand. A storied collaboration between one of the best Czech jewelry designers of her generation, Markéta Richterova and her life partner, Zbynek Krulich, an interior and product designer, Blueberries is named from being born during the Blueberry ripening in the summer of 2012. Eva has known this couple for many years and can vouch for the fact that they live their lives through their designs. Their products may not suit everyone’s taste. But for those who love this work as much as we do, here’s your chance to own some very special and exclusive jewelry pieces made through the newest technologies and finest materials.

 

BONNE MAISON
Made in France

Béatrice de Crécy and Jean-Gabriel Huez created French sock company, Bonne Maison in 2012. Socks quickly became their canvas to create designs incorporating inspiration from all angles of life. Each pair is intricately woven from the highest quality Egyptian cotton using traditional spinning techniques in Italy. The fine gauge ensures optimal strength by issuing a double thread knit. Crécy and Huez construct their own color scale for every collection, making each shade unique to Bonne Maison.

DENOVEMBRE
Made in Paris, France

DeNovembre is a fashion accessories brand specializing in beautifully colored silk and wool scarves. Using unique techniques such as reserve dyeing, hand-embroidery, crochet and hand-weaving, maker Judith Bourdin and her sister Elsa, a costume designer, do much of the work in their Parisian studio. Four years ago Judith completed a residency program in India to learn hand-dyeing processes with a Bandhani master: Jabbar Bey. DeNovembre now works in partnership with Jabbar for the coloring aspects of production. Beyond our love of DeNovembre’s organic designs, it was the idea of 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. 

 

El QUINTO
Made in Istanbul, Turkey

El Quinto is an Istanbul based jewelry brand, designed by Hazal Kiziltoprak, who produces one-of-a-kind pieces using a variety of materials. Hazal believes that the nature of her designs have the ability to merge with the style of the person who wears it, which means that each piece truly takes on a life of its own. We love El Quinto so much that we’re often inspired to match new outfits with each piece, rather than the other way around.

LEMUR LEATHER GOODS
Made in Aarhus, Denmark

Feeling the need to provide at least one accessories option for men, we did some research and stumbled upon Lemur, online of all places. Founded in 2014 by Portuguese architect Fernando Vale and Danish designer Nanna Ringsing, Lemur’s products are made in Aarhus, Denmark. We love the lines and angles their pieces have and while we initially approached them for men’s products we think that what they make would suit women just as well. They always aim for the highest levels of functionality, giving their users a part to play in the final role of the product. Their accessories are all hand-made in-house from leather.

MOU PAPER LOVERS

PENDULAR POCKET
Made in Berlin, Germany

Pascale met Cristina of Pendular Pocket in Barcelona while shopping for her bridal gown. Cristina and Pascale instantly connected and when it came to light that Cristina makes this beautiful line of handmade bags, there was no question that we’d be working with her. Starting her bag designs in 2003, Cristina always saw bags as more than bags, which inspires her conceptual approach to the designs. 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. In 2015, Cristina moved from Spain to Berlin, Germany where she is learning German and getting daily inspiration for her collection.  

 

PRESENT SIMPLE
Made in Vladivostok, Russia

Like many of our designers, Present Simple finds inspiration in contemporary art and architecture. But what gives them their energy is the sea that surrounds their city of Vladivostok, Russia. Svetlana and Victor Parkhomchuk don’t just call their brand simple, they live by it. Their cement based products are cast, ground and polished by hand and each unique piece can take two to three days to create. We’re ever impressed and excited about the amazing and beautiful contradictions in these decorations that are surprisingly light, comfortable and pleasant to touch.

Their inspiration derives from their home of Prague and the concrete-infused architecture that surrounds them. Matěchová and Olšáková produce organic shapes with colorful accents, feminizing the material and creating sensuality. Individually crafted, Studio Dechberouci harmonizes concrete by transforming its technical background to establishing a gentle presence. 

 

ZAND-EROVER
Made in Amsterdam, Netherlands

Zand-erover is a Dutch label formed by the Visser sisters, Sandy and Shelly. After graduation at a styling academy in Amsterdam, Sandy Visser 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 always start 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.  All of their products are handmade in their Amsterdam studio.
