The founder of the luxury sleepwear brand Amoka Dalo was born and raised in Buenos Aires and a sense of pride in this culture and Latin America generally has doubtlessly influenced her unique and original designs. The prints are bold, vibrant, full of fun and yet sophisticated. Now she is based in the gentle beechwood hills of the Chilterns, where the beauty of the natural surroundings provides further inspiration.
What further sets this brand apart is its total commitment to sustainability, paying close attention to all key steps of the production chain, in order to reduce its environmental footprint. In contrast to fast fashion which is produced as quickly and as cost-effectively as possible to generate more demand and thus more profit through its short lifespan, Amoka Dalo prides itself on being a slow fashion brand. It uses the most environmentally friendly materials to create its exclusive hand-printed fabrics, producing them only in small quantities. GOTS certified organic cotton is used for its sleepwear with organic cotton piped trims and all sets come in reusable fabric bags which is a thoughtful touch. Its packaging is also reusable, recyclable, and compostable, further helping to protect the planet.
We especially love its yellow and pink, hand printed organic cotton pyjama trouser set with its unique flower print inspired by Cartagena-de-India in Colombia. Who could fail to feel uplifted when waking up in this print on grey winter mornings! The set, which is cut in a relaxed modern style, comes with a high attention to detail; fabric covered buttons, contrasting magenta piping, adjustable drawstring waist and useful side pockets. Another favourite is its striking black and white floral print set with contrasting yellow piping. This stylish print is inspired by the exotic lands and rich flora of Cuba.
Amoka Dalo’s sleepwear is perfect for sleeping, lounging on lazy Sunday mornings or for relaxing on holiday. Being eco-friendly, its sets would also make a fabulous gift for someone very special.
