Transcript

Our brand 2WO+1NE=2 or ‘2+1=2’ started in 2017 started in 2017.

The brand’s philosophy is based on the concept of nomadism, meaning that every collection is inspired by a different city around the world.

For each collection we are inspired by the architecture, painting, music and of course the people of a nation.

In general, 2WO+1NE=2 is not just a fashion brand, but a tool to help us research and enrich things we are dealing with in all aspects.

We are focused primarily on the traveler but not only on a person that travels, but the one who has the mindset of a traveler who constantly wants to learn new things, to discover new cultures.

Our production is always made in Greece, always made locally by Greek craftsmen. We want to support the local economy, we are also looking for alternative materials because we are trying to have an ecological consciousness above all.

And collection by collection we try to improve our ecological impact.

We love living and working in Greece. Of course we have encountered difficulties in practical matters, in finding artisans, in finding factories, in sewing, and so on.

But for us it was a one-way route, we knew that if we wanted to do what we love, we could do it by creating our own business, we were not satisfied by working for other designers, we wanted our voice to be heard, our own way of thinking to be expressed.
