We are a group of friends- designers and business owners. In making fashion we have the same values- we care about ethical production, well-made things of timeless design and using only good quality materials. In 2015 we established our brands: Balagan and Elementy and because our beliefs matched we decided to unite & form Transparent Shopping Collective. How are our businesses transparent? We share with our clients facts about our products. How much does it cost to produce this dress? What are these shoes made of? We believe that the everyone deserves to know.
