RIYKA is the creation of Rebecca & Vedran husband and wife. Inspired by the cultural variety and ethnic diversity of East London. Each RIYKA collection is a focused edit of easy basics including slouchy jumpers, oversized dresses boyfriend shirts and tees which all carry the brands signature geometric panelling and vibrant pops of colour.
Each season Riyka aims to source fabrics that they believe have minimal impact on the environment or the people making them. The team always ask suppliers how and where products are made.
Riyka uses- end of roll, GOTS certified organic, fair-trade, British made or reclaimed fabrics.
Riyka has a 'slow' approach to fashion, their collections are small and pieces are timeless, of high quality and aimed to last a very long time.
All studio waste is recycled, and fabric waste is sent to be up-cycled with different charities twice a year to avoid landfill.
Riyka work with a small atelier in Sofia Bulgaria, the atelier respects the zero waste policy, is fair-wage and complies with EU laws.
