Hand printing Magic
I landed in Bali searching for surf; and while exploring around I came across a fascinating hand-printing technique that makes it possible to produce fewer quantities.
A hand craft that's an ode to the past and honors the roots of traditional fabric printing … and I fell in love!
That’s when the TIIIGA concept was born: limited runs of hand printed, long lasting garments to make you feel unique.
Mass Production Rebels
Being able to produce less made sense to me. I used to own a children's clothing brand and parents would always complain: "Why do all kids look the same?"
Admit it, you'd like to wear things only you have. It's a turnoff to bump into people with the same shirt you just bought the day before.
Truth is, Mass production condemned us to look the same, to wear the same, to become uniformed...But why?
Why can't We be different. won't let production rules kill our individuality; Not mine, not yours, not here: TIIIGA is printed by hand not by machines, made in small batches and not to fill containers.
WHY Limited editions?Simple, to make sure you feel unique, to help you connect to yourself and embrace what makes you different... Only then, you feel confident to do whatever the hell you want and start to be FREE… "Freedom is to become who you truly are" - F. Nietzsche.
And yes, it’s way more fun to make limited edition pieces that only a few people can get their hands on; but it is also sustainable but We’ll talk about that later…
WHY GLOBAL ART COLLABS?Art is a very powerful transformation tool. Art stimulates your senses and makes you more creative, willing to explore new things and to take risks, daring to change things... Art can definitely change the world. When I found the hand-printing magic, I knew immediately I had to reach out to amazing artist from around the world and collaborate. So yeah TIIIGA is: A global collaboration to make limited edition, hand-printed wearable art.
Limiting Quantities is GoodBy Limiting our quantities we not only foster fair working conditions, we also reduce waste. If we really want to have environmental impact, we should just consume less. But for this to work, Companies should also produce less...
…We believe in producing fewer long lasting garments while inviting you to buy less and more consciously.
Ethically MadeWe believe that all of our suppliers, workers, artists and partners are part of a big family and should grow with us. Everyone here gets their fare share of what we collectively create .
Natural, Re-cycled, UpcycledSurfing in Bali during rainy season opened my eyes, once again, to the plastic epidemic our planet is experiencing. We are committed to using only natural, recycled and up-cycled materials when posible.
In Bali, the island of the gods, TIGA with a single I is the number three (3)
Also in Bali this number defines a traditional philosophy of life: The "Tri Hita Karana” or three causes for prosperity and well-being:
2. Harmony with nature or environment.
3. Harmony with God.
