JUNGLE FOLK emerged from the idea to offer high quality, timeless and sustainable clothing. The brand creates classical pieces that are wearable and combinable in various ways for every occasion.
The brand was born during a trip through Colombia, inspired by beautiful landscapes and the people's knowhow of ancient techniques. The designer Pauline Treis started to develop the brand with a community of urban and rural artisans in 2013. The work with Jungle Folk enables the sustainable development of artisans, increases their incomes and improves their skills. Jungle Folk only uses sustainable and certified materials such as organic cotton, linen, silk and wool for the clothing and recycled and natural materials for accessories.
JUNGLE FOLK employs artisans and sewers in Medellin, Colombia who work in small workshops in the barrios of the city. Mostly they work with women, heads of family, and their work with Jungle Folk helps them to sustain their family and kids. JUNGLE FOLK is a clothing line that doesn’t go with the trend of launching multiple seasonal collections every year. They see sustainability in the longevity and quality of a design and therefore present a carefully designed line of wardrobe classics. They don't work along the "normal" fashion calendar because their brand delivers clothes to wear and love forever!
