~heirloom scarves, handmade virtuously.
Luxury label APOCCAS, an acronym for ‘Ancient Power on Cashmere, Cotton and Silk’ was brought to life by Alexandra Du Sold. Inspired during a 9-month sabbatical in Southeast Asia, Alexandra fell in love with the master weavers of Ancient Siam. She decided to follow her bliss and took the bold decision to leave London's financial world behind in favour of developing and nurturing a fashion accessory brand. Her philanthropic venture inspires trade, not aid, to create a much-needed livelihood for the artisanal weaving communities in rural Thailand. It showcases these women's exquisite talents and introduces them to a sentient, international world. http://apoccas.com
