Loreak Mendian is a Spanish clothing brand founded in 1995, in Donostia (San Sebastián). Their design aesthetic is inspired by streetwear, by music and by art, all while blurring the lines between masculine and feminine shapes.
Meaning "flower in the mountains", Loreak Mendian is always looking to its roots to inspire their new collections and here at Ruskin we love them for their simple shapes, luxe fabrics and ever-present attention to detail.
We look to all of our brands to be making efforts to reduce their environmental impact, and Loreak Mendian is making some great choices in this area. Many of their garments are certified organic. Using organic fabrics is an important choice for sustainable fashion, by choosing organic you are supporting a system which protects the ability of the soil to capture carbon and safeguards the health of farmers, garment workers and all those involved in making this garment.
They are also making great efforts in using recycled fabrics. Crafting from recycled fabrics means no raw materials are used or produced to make the garment. This kind of action is really important to ensure the sustainable future of the fashion industry as it reduced the burden on the land and water supply, as well as reducing energy consumption.
Loreak Median offers a fantastic, sustainable choice for elevated basics.
We bring the best of independent design together with our unique edit.
