At ABURY we believe that we can inspire change and innovation through design – and we feel that many of you are eager to find ways to disrupt the fashion industry, too. Our passion lies with creativity, designing and making – but at the same time the fashion industry is exploiting people and nature in ways that must be changed. We believe that together we can make the difference that is needed for such a change.
And this is why we created this platform and the Design Experience.
We believe in openess and positive curiosity. We are losing so many precious skills, languages, rituals – every day. And with them values, cultural identity and orientation that often could give us some answers within our hectic daily life. At ADEx we want to learn about cultures and skills, differences and similarities. The intercultural exchange creates a direct knowledge transfer between artisans and designers – both ways. It is about bringing the best of heritage knowledge and wisdom to high design and sustainable solutions and creating a better mutual understanding. And hopefully we will be able to save some of the ancient skills at the same time.
And finally – we believe in sharing. 50% of the profits of the products designed and handmade by designer and artisan together will be invested in education and community projects in the respective countries. Like this – designer, artisan and finally the customer have it in their hands to create a direct social impact.
Our vision is to share this spirit all over the world and to cooperate with as many cultures and designers as possible over all continents in coming years. We believe that we together can shape the future with our hands!
Now “IT’S IN YOUR HANDS”!
