We're Hannah Vincent and Rob Marsh from Hackney, East London and we are the founders of WYNAD Clothing.
In 2017 we quit our jobs and decided to start a clothing brand which combined our love of uncompromising, effortless design with ethics and sustainability.
We became inspired to take the plunge after volunteering with a rural development charity called TGG Foundation in the district of Wayanad in Kerala, India (that's where the name comes from).
One of their projects was a women empowerment centre - a stitching workshop which gave women in the local community an opportunity to learn a trade and get paid a fair wage for their work. A concept which sadly seems to be lost on too many in our industry.
After making a small collection in Wayanad, we had the privilege of travelling through India, to find unique and creative artists and businesses that could bring our ideas to life.
We wanted to be daring with our prints and bold with our designs, whilst picking materials and production methods that don't abuse the earth or the people that make them.
We want people to express their true, unique selves through our clothes, without feeling shame about how they were made.
That eventually led to our first collection in 2018.
Bold colours and prints, exciting cuts and designs all lovingly made by Fair Trade, community focussed businesses in India using low impact methods and organic, natural fibres.
We hope you love it as much as we do.
