The story of Aman.vas
How it all came into being
As a child I loved laying in our garden, gazing into the sky, following the aeroplanes with my eyes, ever wondering where they may be going. I guess my desire for exotic countries had started there. Being the oldest of four of a middle class family in Germany, my dreams though, seemed rather out of reach.
Years later in my life, I have been able to experience living on the exotic islands, the Seychelles in the Indian ocean. Together with my then husband, a sculptor, and our 2 little children, we left Germany for good on our adventure. From there on, there was no holding me back to explore more islands, different cultures and different lifestyles. My children and I spent 15 years in the Seychelles, in Bali and in Sri Lanka. Wonderful times of fabulous stories, exciting experiences and beautiful encounters.
My children are grown up now, my daughter lives in Germany and my son has made Sri Lanka his home. I now live in Venice, in Italy. My love for different countries, cultures and nature, and the impact one can have for the betterment of people, still continues.
Aman.vas is the result of having been allowed to live in remote places, and the extraordinary human beings I have shared my life with.
Aman.vas could only come into being with all that has been before.
It gives me a tremendous feeling of gratefulness, to have been able to create Aman.vas, where these principles are our common practice:
And certainly we have a passion for yoga and practise yoga since many years. So we know at first hand, what a Yogini needs, to have a good flowing yoga session, without what you are wearing disrupting your concentration. We've put a lot of care into choosing the best fabrics, cuts and stitching styles and are proud and happy to present to you our yoga outfit collection.
By producing one Mysore yoga top and one Mysore yoga leggings we have used 35 recycled PET bottles, clearing a bit of the plastic waste. When you purchase an item from our store, you directly help families in rural areas in Bali, who stitch and sew our yoga outfits.
As we are much more priviledged than most people in this world, we contribute with every sale to a charity organization, which have been selected on the grounds of betterment for the poor, betterment for animals, betterment for the environment and eradication of cancer:
This puts big smiles on our faces :)
Our yoga outfit collection will always carry a theme, a culture or creature that shares its time together with us on mother earth. Keep watching us!
