Yahmo is a Berlin clothing brand paving the way for creativity, colour and expression in the sustainable fashion world. Driven by anemoia, the feeling of nostalgia for a time you’ve never known, we create ethically made women's & men's wear that expresses a sentimentality for the past.
Each piece tells a story and combines the old with the new: colours and patterns inspired by vintage clothing with modern silhouettes and eco-friendly materials.
Natives of Berlin, Isabell and Johannes were always surrounded by the vibrant and raw culture of this city. They began asking themselves why this creative energy was virtually absent in the sustainable fashion world. In 2016 they founded Yahmo with an aim to capture this spirit.
The brand began with a collection of colourful one-of-a-kind bomber jackets composed entirely of reused Indian textiles. Since then the brand's mission remains to transform the sustainable fashion industry with a focus on expression and creativity.
All Yahmo Items are ethically made in India under fair working conditions. From the beginning, it was important to us to know the people who make our products and to make sure that they receive more than a living wage and work in a safe and friendly environment. This photo was taken in our small production workshop in Mumbai. We regularly meet our tailors and make sure that all labour standards are met.
We mainly use Cupro (OEKO-TEX certified), Tencel and cotton (GOTS certified). All three materials are biodegradable and produced under environmentally friendly conditions. In addition, we also have our Upcycled collection, which re-uses leftover Indian sari fabrics.
