A new kind of luxury

We know of your passion for beautiful garments. We know that your personal style is thought out and particular. We acknowledge that you are aware of both quality, fit and details and we respect that each piece is a reflection of this. We know that you are kind and we know that you wish to be kind when you purchase lingerie – kind to the environment and to the people involved in making it.

We respect that.
Aesthete is made because of that.

We do what we believe by creating sustainable lingerie for everyday luxury. We source sustainable materials to fit specific criteria of quality – aesthetically and materially.

"reviving aesthetics and the pleasure of well-made lingerie"

Today, luxury has a new meaning. Luxury is not only defined by lavish design and quality goods. Today, luxury is all that, and it is knowing that your everyday luxury is reflecting you and your ethics - reviving aesthetics and the pleasure of well-made lingerie. 

Our commitment to reflect your ethics, is marked by our use of hemp and peace silk as main textiles in our first collection. These textiles has a long history, important to our heritage. Our ancestors grew, wrought and spun hemp into textiles to create strong and durable products for a harsh everyday life. These practises are forgotten in large parts of the world where it used thrive, but the philosophies of our ancestors are rising. Quality and aesthetics is here to stay. Just like hemp, silk holds strong traditions. These cultural traditions stems from the luxurious and good natural qualities of silk. Our peace silk is the supreme silk variety, as it is sustainably made in peaceful practices without killing the silk larvae.

Sustainability simply creates better products. We design pieces made to be cherished and yes, loved – why our details are shaped by function and by traditional crafts. Our lingerie is created through analysing shape, fit and aesthetic appeal and shaped by feedback obtained from different women along the way

Aesthete. noun. A person who is appreciative of and sensitive to art and beauty.Origin: Late 19th century: from Greek aisthētēs ‘a person who perceives’, or from aesthetic, on the pattern of the pair athlete, athletic.
