Introducing: AMYKARINE

AMYKARINE is a new independent British label specialising in creating unique textile designs and luxury fashion accessories. All items are limited edition pieces made of 100% natural textiles and ethically manufactured in England following the principle of eco-sustainable production.

Amy and Karine Brutijan are the designers of the brand. Of Armenian background, the siblings were born into a family with deep artistic roots, with their father being a famous Armenian writer. The sisters travelled and lived in diverse metropolises, ranging from Moscow and London, to Paris and Vienna, and this is reflected heavily in their artworks, which breath exquisiteness.
