Ethos - Quality

& the heroes behind


''We want to deliver what we promise to our customers.

We keep transparency on our product and let them know where the materials  come from,

the fabric Mill, who made their garment, and where.

That’s why we select carefully our partners.

For Braves & Company, the weavers, makers and suppliers play an important role

for the brand development and become a member of the family.

Without them, nothing would operate. 

The difficulties and complexities in garment realization, are so many.

The expertise that is needed to complete a single item is much,

and the people who work behind the scenes should carry and share the same values like us ''

Berto produces high quality denim fabrics for important Italian and International fashion brands.

It was founded in 1887 in Bovolenta, a small city near Venice, and it is still run by the fourth generation of the Berto family. The production still takes place in the historic factories, so it is proudly part of the Italian fashion value chain. Technology and manual skills, combined with the knowledge acquired over time, give life to an innovative, high quality and sustainable product.

For Berto, the 'Made In Italy' is not just a style issue. It means Italian production chain, workers and territorial respect.

"Born and living in the city of Chania(Greece).

I have attended several seminars and workshops from acclaimed teachers and photographers,

trying to present small human stories through the photographic language"

not only because these clothes are unique and handmade,

but mostly because are soul-made.

Braves&Company, thank you!!! "
