Last Summer we saw the lovely dresses by Tricotage in their little shop in Copenhagen...and fell in love! Such simple elegance, made of honest materials like organic cotton. And the prints are really pretty. Their signature print for this season (Spring/Summer '16) is the dot print and the awesome feather print. Expressive yet uncomplicated. It just makes these dresses even more wonderful to wear. You can dress 'm up with tights or skinny jeans and with some great heels or just wear it comfortable with sneakers or slippers. Whatever the occasion, wear it with a smile!
All dresses are made in a small factory in Lithuania. And we can't wait for the Winter collection...some soft woolen tops and cardigans...and of course more lovely dresses!
At northbound store we've been selling The Baand's organic Tee's and winter knits since our opening, last year...! The cotton is absolutely of the highest quality! Soft and strong! The knits...of baby Alpaca wool...are amazing, so soft.
Let us tell you a bit more about the philosophy behind this awesome Danish brand, The Baand.
The Baand was founded in 2009 by Designer, Julie Villumsen & Textile Purchaser, Stine Bauer Boskov. Both had been working in fashion for a while, but it was not until a trip to Lima that they had ever felt such a fantastic softness and high quality of cotton.
And there came the idea of real fair fashion basics. Those favorite pieces in your wardrobe that always save the day and make you look your best!
That's why The Baand started to call their shirts, cardigans, pants, skirts...their Everyday Heroes!
The Baand is deadly serious and dedicated to a perfect fit, unique craftsmanship and attention to every detail. Furthermore, they don't like the idea of consuming without thinking. Don´t like to throw things away. That's why The Baand decided to create clothes that stand the test of time, and just get better and better the more you wear them!
The Peruvian organic cotton that they use in their products, is among the world´s absolute finest. The quality is amazing. The fibers are extremely long and therefore super soft and strong at the same time. Which basically means, that their clothes last for years and really can become true favorites in your wardrobe.
In Peru, just outside Lima, The Baand has the Tee's produced in a small factory where they also produce in a fair way! No waste of fabrics, vegetable dye to color the fabrics and no child labor. This is what The Baand shared on their Facebook, just before traveling to Lima this month.
"These 6 girls are the ones who have sewn our SS14 garments in Lima. They used to be homeless but now they all live across the street from the workshop who has given them a job and taught them how to sew! The girl in the striped tee is Ruth, the girl in black is Carmen - we are going to meet them in April when we travel to Peru!"
Since 2014, The Baand also has Tee's produced in a small factory in Portugal. Also of great 100% organic cotton or beautiful soft 100% linen.

Last but not least, spotted on Dutch Television, presenter Froukje de Both wearing The Baand's "Ganesa" oversize T-shirt in vintage washed color "porto stella"! (click here to see the shirt in our webshop!)
It's mid-May...and temperatures are droping to 11 degrees this week. Too cold for this time of year!! Not OK!
Luckily northbound store has great cotton blankets from Sweden to keep you warm in the evenings...just throw it over your shoulders or lay it over your lap and enjoy the chilly evening even longer! The blankets are made of 100% brushed cotton and it feels sooo incredibly soft! They will warm you up...but not too much...no sweating, yuck! No...the cotton is light and 'breathes'. Sigh!
