FANM MON

                                             WAS LAUNCHED IN 2013 BY SOPHIA DEMIRTAS AS AN ODE TO HER HAITIAN HERITAGE AND THE MAGIC AND ENCHANTMENT OF HAITIAN COUTURE. OVER THE YEARS, WE’VE EMBRACED THE ARTISANAL TECHNIQUES OF UKRAINE, WHERE WE WERE ONCE BASED, AND TURKEY, WHERE WE’VE NOW MADE A NEW HOME. TODAY A POTPOURRI OF DELIGHTFUL COLORS, UNIQUE MOTIFS, FAIRYTALE SILHOUETTES AND EXTRAORDINARY CRAFTSMANSHIP HAVE BECOME HALLMARKS OF OUR BRAND. THROUGH OUR COLLECTIONS, WE CELEBRATE THE BOUNTY OF NATURE AND THE BEAUTY OF THE HUMAN SPIRIT. OUR HOPE IS THAT WE CAN CONNECT WITH OUR COMMUNITY IN MEANINGFUL WAYS TO NURTURE BEAUTY FROM THE INSIDE OUT.

FANM MON IS A HAITIAN PHRASE THAT MEANS MOUNTAIN WOMAN, BUT THE SPIRIT OF FANM MON IS UNIVERSAL. TO US, FANM MON SIGNIFIES A WOMAN - A NURTURER - WHO IS INTWINED WITH NATURE. SHE IS THE TYPE OF WONDER WOMAN WHO CAN SMELL THE RAIN BEFORE IT COMES, AND WHO CREATES BEAUTY FROM HER NATURAL SURROUNDINGS. AND IN THIS WAY, WE HAVE GIVEN A NEW MEANING TO A COLLOQUIAL EXPRESSION. IN OUR WORLD, THE WOMAN THAT NURTURES AND UNDERSTANDS NATURE, IS ONE OF THE MOST POWERFUL BEINGS ON EARTH.

WE ARE ALWAYS CONSCIOUS OF WHY AND HOW WE CREATE. THROUGH THOUGHTFUL PRODUCTION METHODS, WE REDUCE OUR ENVIRONMENTAL FOOTPRINT BY MAKING OUR PIECES TO ORDER SO THAT WE REDUCE EXCESS; BY RECYCLING MATERIALS AND REPURPOSING UNUSED FABRICS; AND BY GIVING EXCESS FABRIC TO OTHER FABRIC PRODUCERS SO THAT WE CREATE CYCLES OF BETTER HABITS.
