“Protect what you love” is the tagline for Basque clothing brand TwoThirds. And what, one may ask, is the object of affection in question here? The answer: TwoThirds are committed to the preservation of oceans. Their garments are intended to be “ocean-friendly,” made from organic or recycled materials, being entirely or partly recyclable or biodegradable.
The brand have a flagship store on Duc and a shop in the Born. At the Born shop’s opening in 2014, TwoThirds art director Emil Kozak presented a series of works on ocean waste entitled One Man’s Trash Is Another One’s Gold. The brand’s collections feature natural fabrics and warm earth tones: tans, dark blues and beiges with a only a hint of hipster in the design approach.
But since their commitment to the environment extends well beyond the marketing spiel, forgive them.
