WHO WE ARE
We are a contemporary brand with an artisanal focus. Cultivating a spirit of adventure with social, environmental, and ethical issues at heart. We respect traditional craft and techniques so that we can preserve a part of history.
We believe in protecting our natural world, as best we can. Together as a community we can strive to make the best decisions on how we treat people and the planet through conscious consumerism.
Together we can have real impact, by always exercising respect for our environment, the planet, partners, communities, and each other.
We believe in celebrating old world craftsmanship and embracing traditional techniques that have been passed from one artist to the next over generations.
Our love of life energises and empowers us to strip away complexity and awaken confidence through effortless and eclectic design.
ALEMAIS is the creative expression of Australian designer Lesleigh Jermanus. A Graduate in Fine Arts, Lesleigh has been designing and collaborating within the industry for over 20 years.
ALEMAIS is a brand with purpose. It is a brand of integrity. A brand striving for transparent and sustainable practices within a changing industry. It is about creating and curating a collection that supports artisanal communities, that reduces environmental impact and treats its suppliers with honesty and respect.
THE ALEMAIS FOREST
We recognise that our wonderful planet needs a helping hand and with your support we plant a tree with every garment sold. Trees are one of the best tools we have in removing carbon pollution from our atmosphere.
We believe in building a brand that champions environmental and economic development through meaningful relationships that foster and empower artisans and suppliers. Through this approach we aim to build long lasting associations.
We are concerned about the future of our world, which is why we embrace ethical partnerships, support businesses that empower women, and prioritise fair treatment of workers and artisans. Wherever possible we choose natural, durable and organic fibres such as Hemp, Ramie, Cotton and Linen. Our focus will always be on quality over quantity.
CRAFT & ARTISTS
We believe that art and creativity are essential to our wellbeing and human growth. We seek out crafts and traditional techniques so that we can preserve a part of history by consciously designing stories to support our artisans.
