And the Dream goes on...
Who we are.
It was in 2012 when the wheel turned for both of us. Momo left behind a career in the marine industry and Q graduated from university. Having realized that there is so much more in life than working from 9 to 5, we traveled to India in search of meaning of life. What we eventually found was each other.
Amazed and inspired by India’s beautiful nature and rich culture, our creativity started flowing. We realized that there is so much more to life than just mere existing – especially life with Art. The love of art became a driving force in our everyday lives. We started creating and giving to the world in the form of art and beauty.
Not after long we opened our first store in Thailand and gave our creations a home.
ATMAN PROJECT was born.
To be able to do so we sought and found inspiration all around us. It is the beauty of Nature that always charges us and enables us to carry on with our mission. We keep our creative fire lit by traveling to near & far and exploring ethnic cultures. From them we source ancient wisdom and find inspiration in their traditions.
With every creation we choose quality over quantity.
Most of our products are hand-made either personally by us or by people whom we have met and spent some time with, people who in the course of time we tend to call family.
We value and honor handmade art and crafts. Every unique piece of ours is made consciously and intentionally, reminding us to fully appreciate and go about our lives in more mindful manner.
The more time we spent in this filed, the more we understood that clothing and accessories are part of industry that is mostly dark and full of suffering. To spread the awareness in the world, we decided to create wholesome production process and products.
We have chosen to live wholesome, slow life - working in a small scale and giving attention to every tiny detail, while preserving the nature and valuing the efforts of everyone involved. Simplicity and authenticity have become leading points in our creative process.
Why we do what we do.
What we care for.
We wish to call ourselves a sustainable company. We take seriously the impact we leave on our Planet. We strive to use eco-friendly natural materials as much as possible not only for our clothes and accessories but also for our various packages. Low impact natural dyes & inks, recycled paper and lead-free metals are just few to name.
We do fair trade. It is of great importance to us to know who made a certain piece. We strive to create relationship, built on trust and respect, a relationship that far exceeds mere buying and selling. By doing so, we minimize the supply chain and support directly the right people. We make our clothes and accessories in a calm manner, with minimum stress.
What we strive for.
Our aim is to celebrate the unique beauty of each person. We wish to make you feel comfortable in your own skin, to embrace your own magic and be proud of who you really are.
We hope, with our creations, we will help you strengthen the balance within and promote self-love. This in essence is the true meaning of ATMAN.
Now there are Atman Teams in India, Thailand, and Indonesia. We all have the same mission - to integrate traditional arts and crafts into modern, easy to wear products, while taking care of our Planet.
All of our crafts are people-, animal- and earth-friendly.
With our eyes set on the future we aspire to inspire!
