SISTERS° NORTH BY EAST

Varangian (Old Norse: Væringjar; Greek: Βάραγγοι, Βαριάγοι) is the name used by the Byzantine Empire and the Eastern Slavs for the Vikings of Sweden, who ruled the medieval state of Rus’ between the 9th and 11th centuries and later formed the Varangian Guard under the Byzantine emperors.


Voriagh is a brand based in Paris and inspired by Baltic and Slavic folklore. We are two sisters passionate about the spice road. Our challenge is to create a minimalist clothes line from traditional shapes and patterns. We elaborate only natural fibers.


We also work with local artisans to produce sacred pieces and / or manufactured using a traditional process. The embroidery designs made in India are designed by us in order to avoid any cultural appropriation, respecting the traditions and ancestral meanings.


The accessories are made by different artists: the woven belts by Renata in Lithuania, the stoles are knitted by Natalya in Ukraine and the gloves and hats by a collective of women, war victims in Sarajevo.

Who made your clothes ?

We are very proud to be able to provide full information about our designs, from the fabric suppliers to the dying and fabrication process. Our clothes are made in very small scale. We prefer to restock instead of producing too much, because the best action for the environment is moderation.

 

Made in France

Our wool and linen items are made in a family workshop in Paris. The atelier is located rue Oberkampf and collaborates exclusively with small designer and/or ethical brands.
