About

Hello and welcome! I'm Hanna and this is raori, my ecological slow-fashion clothing brand.

I'm originally a Teacher in Textile Crafts and Pattern Cutting, but I always knew that I wanted to make clothes for a living, so I left my home country of Sweden to study Fashion and Pattern Technology in London. After that, I worked for big fashion companies for a while; I was a Design Assistant, a Pattern Cutter and a Production Coordinator. All very interesting jobs, but the idea of us Westerners, using work power in Third World Countries for our own luxury and pleasure ...

Hello and welcome! I'm Hanna and this is raori, my ecological slow-fashion clothing brand.

I'm originally a Teacher in Textile Crafts and Pattern Cutting, but I always knew that I wanted to make clothes for a living, so I left my home country of Sweden to study Fashion and Pattern Technology in London. After that, I worked for big fashion companies for a while; I was a Design Assistant, a Pattern Cutter and a Production Coordinator. All very interesting jobs, but the idea of us Westerners, using work power in Third World Countries for our own luxury and pleasure ... I found that it was a world ruled by fashion trends, mass-producing, buying and throwing; I knew pretty fast that line of work wasn't for me.

Circumstances brought me to Tokyo, where I studied Japanese and that's where I found love, my biggest inspiration, a musician who is always full of creative ideas and support. Within a few years, we had two kids, were married and had moved to his home town Brussels in the little tiny, mini-country of Belgium, were we live and create together.

Don't hesitate to convo me if you have questions: private or business related, for ANY reason- even just to say hi :) You can contact me in English, Swedish, Français, Dutch (maar ik lees beter dan ik schrijf, misschien moet ik in engels repliek) or 日本語 だけどカタカナとひらがなは大丈夫でも感じはちょっと。。。

Music that I listen to while creating:
♥ Fredo ♥ Grizzly Bear ♥ Death Cab for Cutie ♥ Bon Iver ♥ Boards of Canada ♥ Bonobo ♥ Le Double ♥ Max FInkle ♥ Massive Attack ♥ Air ♥ Tortoise ♥ Nina Simone ♥ Paul Simon ♥ Emiliana Torrini ♥ Sam Prekopp ♥ Ray LaMontagne ♥The Radio Department ♥ Nick Drake ♥ Ulrich Schnauss ♥ Tycho ♥ Eté67 ♥ The Embassy ♥ James Blake ♥ Caribou ♥ Feist ♥ Prodigy ♥ Ishq ♥♥♥

All pieces in my shop are unique and handmade on demand. I care a lot about the environment so I only use organically produced fabrics or left-over fabrics. Nothing in the production goes to waste: Small fabric cuttings becomes clothes for me or my kids (or their dolls) what is left after that is used for quilts or pillow stuffing.

Have fun and happy shopping!
