The term ethnic clothing is derived from the Greek word "ethnos" and translated into German means "people". Ethnic clothing can also be described as clothing from the people, i.e. traditional fashion. Clothing of this type is based on the fashion style of various ethnic tribes and usually combines unusual colors and patterns that are made in a traditional way. This creates a very unique ethnic look.

What are ethnic style patterns?
Ethnic patterns are mostly woven or embroidered patterns with geometric shapes and many colors. We fell in love with fabrics, patterns and colors in ethnic style, which have been traditionally made in Asia by ethnic tribes for many generations. We love handmade ethnic clothing and for us it's less about cultural appropriation and much more about appreciating and reviving this unique craftsmanship. In particular, the woven fabrics of the Naga hill people and the embroidery of the Hmong have cast a spell over us. Befriended artists and we integrate them into our ethnic fashion and thus create alternative clothingthat you won't find on every corner.

How does virblatt combine ethnic fashion with modern designs?
Hundreds of years ago, hemp was used to make fabric and rope. The Hmong people also use hemp in a traditional way to produce their ethnic fashion. The fabrics are also usually tie-dyed in a natural way in the well-known indigo blue. After the hemp is harvested and made into thread, it is woven by hand on a simple wooden loom. We also use this incredible and today often underestimated material in our hemp clothing such as shoes, bags and backpacks.
