I (Lili) have worked with textiles for several decades. I have traveled the world sourcing for new interesting opportunities within my field and always felt that something was missing.
Only when I met my Indian friends Sekaran and Rangasamy who owned a small factory in Tirupur in Tamil Nadu, I felt that something very special was happening. They were very keen on working with sustainability but didn't know how to get started. We started a project together and this is how our very close relationship started.
Since those first steps were taken in 2004 we have worked closely together ever since and have become almost family to one another. Together we have achieved to become a very interesting partner to Danish brands who wish to work sustainably.
With the GOTS certificate at hand we cater mainly to children's wear brands, but I always wanted to start a sustainable brand myself so what makes more sense than a yoga brand?
This is how the idea of Yogamii started and my Indian family is of course also involved in this venture, making sure that what we produce is purely organic, comfortable and sustainable. Yogamii is a dream come true and we couldn't have started it without our Indian friends support.
