Clothing company Piki Poma’s founders, sisters Mirna Litovic and Ida Babic, both come from a fashion design background. Last year in 2020, Litovic and Babic decided to begin creating natural and eco-friendly bags, shoes and clothing made using sustainable, cutting edge materials (including 100% recycled fibers). To prevent waste, all products in the conscious fashion line are crafted by hand in Croatia in small batches, adding high quality and a custom feel to each piece.
Designed with a lightweight construction for multiple seasons, Piki Poma pieces are made for lasting comfort year-round from day to night. Parts of the collection are permanently crushed and pleated to give it additional texture and playfulness.
The fabrics are crafted from REPREVE yarns, UniFi’s recycled fibers and PET plastic bottles. The REPREVE yarn is especially innovative as it eliminates the need to reuse petroleum, helping to reduce greenhouse gases, save water and save energy during production.
Some of the pieces include the Baal skirt with a detachable rope-like belt that’s pleated horizontally, the Fabela dress that combines classic with modern style, the Tago shirt which can be worn as both a dress or a tunic, and the Moni textured scarf that’s designed to catch the light whether it’s worn tied, twisted, looped or folded.
In addition to skirts, slip-on dresses, tunics and scarves available in black, nude, red and gray, the collection incorporates Wild As A Wind clogs and Corky bags that are handmade from natural vegan leather. An extra environmentally conscious jewelry collection uses materials like tree veneer and recyclable, sustainable materials using the bentwood method — by soaking a small strip of wood veneer and wrapping the thin sheet around itself. The jewelry is dyed with organic colors, using a blend of natural oils, creating tones of gold, red, purple and blue.
