Design is our life. The iconic Ether manuscript is based on three basic principles - minimalism, perfect functionality and timelessness. Together with the emphasis on the highest quality craftsmanship, these are the reasons why our collections of accessories and clothing are not subject to seasonality. Design and prototypes are created in our studio in Prague.
We profess traditional crafts and procedures. The products are realized by hand in small limited series in the Czech Republic, regardless of the financial demands. We support local producers and we are able to guarantee 100% quality craftsmanship. At the same time, a fair production guarantee goes hand in hand with our products. All components of production are ethical, all employees have adequate financial evaluation and conditions for the performance of their activities.
We work with the best materials. For the production we use carefully selected leathers from premium Italian tanneries, which are created as a secondary product in meat processing or as surpluses in tanneries. All materials are from the production of European Union countries, without the share of production in third world countries. We use a minimum amount of plastics, and if at all possible, we try to use recycled materials and especially recycled plastics.
Every year Ether also supports the charity projects Helping dolls and Metráž. We care about the world we live in.
