AymaraAymara Contact: Sven Van Gucht Yannina Esquivias
Aymara is the result of the love story between a Belgian engineer, Sven Van Gucht, who met Yannina Esquivias, a young Peruvian travel agent, during a sabbatical year and fell in love. Yannina and Sven quit their jobs and started a knitting factory in Peru together with Yannina’s family. In 2007, the knitwear label Aymara was born. The name Aymara refers to a native ethnic group in the Andes of South America.
The magic of Aymara lies in the combination of Belgian design and Peru’s extraordinary fibers and textile craftmenship. Aymara’s knitwear is produced in our own knitting factory in Arequipa, in the south of Peru, managed by Yannina’s family. Thank’s to our strong relationship with them and their unconditional commitment, this incredible intercontinental project could be achieved. We believe that in today’s world of fast fashion and mass consumption, people are looking for authentic products with a soul. When buying Aymara, you are sure to get longlasting, sustainable products with an extraordinary story.
Excellent natural fibers play a key role and are the starting point of each Aymara design. This is why Aymara chooses to offer pure styles available in a wide colour palette of bright and soft colours. Our designers take into account the fashion trends but at the same time, we make sure that each Aymara product is timeless and longlasting. A lot of attention has been paid for the perfect fitting form and discrete refined details. The kids collection, designed by Yannina has a playful character whereas the women’s collection, designed by Saskia Van Herzeele is very feminine.
Peru manufactures some of the world’s finest quality fibers. For our summer collections, Aymara uses Peruvian pima cotton which is considered to be one of the softest and finest cottons in existence. In winter, garments made of precious alpaca blends are always an important part of our collection. Alpaca is a cousin of the llama and is prized for it’s thermal properties, silkiness and durability. Alpaca is a fiber which does not come at the expense of the environment. In today’s world, dominated by artificial materials, alpaca is the natural option. Alpacas graze at elevations of 3500 to 5000 meters in the Peruvian Andes. This precious fibre is used by top designers world wide. Aymara only uses the finest alpaca fibers, called baby alpaca. In our winter collections we also offer garments made of fine merino wool from Argentina.
Aymara’s knitting plant is fully integrated and employs about 60 persons on the pay roll. This assures us to be in complete control of the production process and the quality of the garments. Although the knitting process itself has been industrialized, the production process is labour intensive and still requires a lot of manual operations. A lot of attention is been paid to the linking and finishing processes. Aymara garments are fully fashioned ; this means that the cutting and overlocking process is avoided as much as possible. By doing so, Aymara’s customers are getting a high quality product with one of the finest linking and finishing standards on the market. Turn your Aymara garment inside out and you will see what we mean !
Although most of the collection is produced on industrial knitting machines, each winter season Aymara offers a small theme of hand knit accessories. This enables women to generate an income by hand knitting at their home while taking care of their children. For a lot of these women it would be impossible to work inside a company because of their family situation and the lack of childcare. You can recognize these products by the “Aymara hand knit” hang tag. We are currently investigating how this could be integrated into a wider social project.

At Ba*Ba Kidswear
Working in the childrenswear industry for over a decade has taught us one thing for sure. Nobody’s too small to make a difference.
We are not afraid to rethink fashion, and carefully consider everything we do. From the design to fabrics we use, all the way to what happens to our clothes after we are done with them: every step matters. We might be a small team but we partner with others to reduce our impact on the planet and people. We are dedicated to making a more just and sustainable future.
Because that’s exactly the future we want our children to have.
So far, the majority of our fabrics are made from natural and organic fabrics. Yet, with every new collection, we are increasing this. We have reduced the proportion of virgin synthetic fibres in our clothing and replaced some with recycled polyester. Currently, 95% of our collection is made with organic cotton.
This way, we are making our clothes safe for the planet and those wearing them.
In the future, we plan to phase out the synthetics as much as possible. Instead, we are looking to introduce new fabrics with a lower eco-footprint. Additionally, we are finding ways to reuse the leftover scraps from our production and reduce fabric waste.
Producing ethically has always been at the core of our business. We are serious about understanding and knowing where our clothes come from. We do not support practices like child labour, slavery, unpaid working hours, or lack of social security.
Thus, have been partnering with trusted manufacturers in Portugal, Bulgaria, and Turkey for years. We have visited these factories ourselves, to see how and where our clothes are made.
Our partner factories are well recognised and carry certifications like GOTS, OEKO-TEX. They also have a strong corporate social responsibility policy. Together, we are working on sourcing better fabrics, reducing our production waste, and aligning our businesses with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
SHIPPING AND PACKAGING
Packaging is a big part of any fashion business. We switched partly to a plastic-free and recycled carton and paper packaging to reduce our impact and waste.
Our next goal is to reduce the transportation footprint.
The suppliers we work with choose to ship by land rather than air, to reduce the transport footprint. They are also starting to use recycled materials to transport our clothes. We are encouraging them to further increase recycled materials in their packaging.
Everyone deserves a safe future, where the clothes we wear don’t cost the planet but help us thrive.
This is why our clothes are made to last. We want children not only to wear the clothes but to #GrowUpWithBaBa.
With every purchase, we encourage you to make the most use of the clothes. This includes taking proper care of them but also passing them on to other children. Our clothes now come with detailed washing and caring instructions, printed on recycled cotton.
We play our part in this too. Every year, we partner with a local charity to donate parts of our clothes to children in need. This way, we give life to as many of our garments as we can, rather than wasting them.
Yet, we aim to do more.
We are planning something we call a Ba*Ba repair day. This will be an annual event where everyone is invited to come and repair clothes for themselves and others. Though our clothes are made with quality in mind, they still get ripped and worn out during playtime or outdoors adventures. We want to encourage mending and repairing the clothes first.

OUR PASSION FOR REINTERPRETED AUTHENTICITY
Designing garments without compromise allows us to focus on genuine products and authentic values. Our collections are based on true stories, delivering a specific point of view, which has become our signature. We control our product and our brand, while knowing that God is in the details. The Bellerose woman juggles between a military-inspired parka, that conceals a night gown and a pair of army trousers worn with leather brogues. Her children are granted the permission to be everything, all at once. Reflecting their age group, they enjoy their activities without worrying about the state of their t-shirt after a fight on the grass. With references to the army and workwear, the Bellerose man revisits the “old school” to suit an allure at that is at the same time casual and unique.
Creating a store is like building a new home. We want the space to be comfortable and functional, as well as reflecting our own tastes and aesthetics. Each store is individual, even though there are features they all share creating this particular Bellerose experience. Authenticity is core to all 16 flagship Bellerose stores and its 600 multi brand customers across Europe, Japan and the United States. Merging architectural genius with respect and preservation of the space: the stores are designed with wood, ambient sound, olfactory, cosy, raw and wide spaces. It is something rough and rock ‘n roll, real and sought out.

Buissonnière: the unique story of a Belgian family passionate about fashion
Buissonnière is a Belgian clothing brand that focusses its activity on core values such as family, authenticity and joie de vivre.
Buissonnière is also an exclusive brand: the company develops and creates its own collections that are sold only in its own shops and on its website.
The philosophy of Buissonnière from day one has been to offer a coordinated, refined, high-quality assortment with a continual focus on using natural materials to make clothes. Its collections meet the current needs of families, respect their budget and adapt to every event.
1983: The origin of the brand
30 years ago, Myriam and Christian became the proud parents of a baby girl, Laurence. Myriam, who had always dreamed of having a daughter, could not find high-quality clothing to dress to her according to her taste at affordable prices in the shops. She therefore decided to make the pretty clothes she wanted for her baby herself.
1985 Buissonnière is born!
The little outfits Myriam makes are an immediate success with her friends and family. In 1985, along with her husband, they go all in and decide to create, together, a first collection for children called “Buissonnière”. The family business is launched!
1989: Opening of the first store
After some private sales at friends’ homes, Myriam and Christian quickly develop the brand. Initially, their children’s playroom serves as their first shop. In 1989, the first real point of sale opens in Wavre.
1990-2009: Development of the collections
Over the years, the family grows and Laurence has three little sisters. The Buissonnière clothes also develop: first clothing for babies and children, then a line for teenagers, and finally adults.
2010: Launch of the e-commerce website
Buissonnière follows the trends and adapts to new technologies; in 2010, the brand opens its online shop which has since grown steadily and allows families in many European countries to finally purchase Buissonnière clothes from their own homes as well.
2014: Official purveyor to the Belgian royal court
Since its creation, the brand is known for the refinement of its clothes and benefits from the confidence of the Belgian royal family. The title of Purveyor to the Court was granted in 2014 by King Philip.
2015: Buissonnière celebrates its 30th anniversary
Although multinational chains currently dominate the ready-to-wear market, Buissonnière maintains its presence and desires to preserve its know-how and values of creativity and quality. It is still and always has been a small Belgian family business: the second generation has arrived and is infusing the brand’s development with dynamism and modernity.
But Buissonnière is more than the story of a family. It is the story of passionate young people who did everything to realise their dream of creating a clothing brand to dress every generation in perfect harmony with the current fashion trends.
