This Mother's Day, we're helping to make gift giving super easy with our Mother's Day edit. This year at Alterior Motif, we recommend loungewear from Deiji Studios and underwear from The Unseen for the mothers in your life. Read on for more about these beautiful brands.
Deiji Studios are an Australian brand offering high quality linen loungewear, defying the sense of age and time. Founded in 2016 by Juliette Harkness and Emma Nelson, Deiji Studios loungewear blur the lines between sleepwear and ready-to-wear.
Pronounced ‘day-gee’, Deiji is translated to ‘daisy’ in English, embracing the simple, natural perfection of the flower, its resilience and its humble beauty. Deiji as a concept is the ability to blend morning into night, daywear into sleepwear – wherever you are.
Their small team is based in Byron Bay, Australia and they are proud members of 1% for the planet – connecting businesses and high-impact nonprofit partners together to give back to environmental causes they are passionate about.
The Unseen is an underwear label that stands for all that your underwear should; our diversity; our planet and everyone’s right to underwear.
"We're all about elevating essentials and challenging the norm of harmful fast-fashion that isn’t too kind on our planet, people and – our privates. Which brings us to underwear. We don’t believe in painting with one colour, so why would our underwear be that way? Our underwear is inspired by all: him, her, they, you. We make staple pieces that don't compromise on style, designed for a life without restrictions or inhibitions, and never reserved for just one nude. We believe the best of ourselves is the unseen, and that’s where we start."
The Unseen's essence is to be kind to our privates, our planet and people. Their underwear is made from GOTS certified organic cotton, bamboo and elastane and they only work in OEKO-TEXT approved dyes. The Unseen is made in an ethical factory paying above award wages and their packaging is recycled, biodegradable and non-toxic.
Upon learning that new underwear is one of the most in demand and least donated items throughout crisis shelters across Australia, The Unseen give back to some of our most vulnerable people who are seeking refuge from domestic violence, homelessness or crisis in their lives without their basic necessities. 5% of their profits are committed to providing new underwear to those struggling with their own unseen crises and they have donated 200 pairs of underwear to Bris Youth crisis centre upon launch.
