Mainstream Fashion means quick turn around, lower quality products, poor labor conditions and harm to the environment. These products are not built to last; they are designed to lose their integrity, so that consumers can keep buying over and over.
As consumers, we need to become increasingly conscious about our purchases, channeling the power of our vocalized objections to make a positive difference for the people involved in the making of our clothes and goods.
KATIYA Lifestyle “Brand for All Seasons” – Designed for the “individual” Canadian eco-clothing brand maintains 100% local, small batch manufacturing, to create practical classic essentials for both men and women. KATIYA rejects cyclical and fast-fashion trends that damage our environment, releasing collections only once or twice a year. No spring catalogs, no fall blowouts. Just classic, quality garments that never go out of style.
We produce a limited quantity of each design so that we can ensure that every handmade piece is up to the brands standards. This allows us to confidently ship each item with a 10-year warranty. In the rare case that something needs to be repaired, just send it to us and we’ll make it as good as new.
KATIYA is a ‘lifestyle’ brand – meaning we take classic fits and classic designs and improve on them. We recreate the classics with newer, higher quality materials, while adding subtle modern details to the ageless design. This allows our customers to buy less pieces, but extract higher value from each piece. KATIYA is a quality brand defined not by accumulation but rather a paring down to the essentials. We are a lifestyle brand that combines simplicity, style and function ability.
My name is Katiya I am the Designer and Creative Director of KATIYA Lifestyle Brand….
I have always been passionate about the idea of producing ‘small’ batches with ‘big’ quality. I started about 7 years ago designing and producing handmade jewelry. It began as a hobby, just making a few pieces here and there for family and friends and slowly started getting more recognition. Before I knew it, artists such as Kanye West and drake had been seen wearing my bracelets.
