Para qué es la financiación

We have innovated, we got round the technical challenges to be able to create this collection. From now, we need you and it is up to you to decide if we are going to go through with this adventure!

To be enable to start this collection, we need to gather at least 100 preorders to produce the first “DenimLin” rollers weaving!

Either you will be able to carry the collection by June or our innovation will remain in prototype state, on our side everything is ready. You hold all the cards in this amazing adventure :-) !

Sobre el creador de proyecto

My name is Davy, I am the founder of DAO brand and its workshop opened after a trip to my parents’ country: Vietnam. During this trip, I became aware of the devastating effects of the jeans industry in which I have been sailing for more than 10 years (he worked for Levis-Strauss and G-Star). In 2012, I created DAO brand with the idea of doing otherwise. In 2014, I opened my workshop and in 2016 I had my first successful crowdfunding to more than 170% of the objective. Finally, the brand was voted best pants brand by readers of the blog specialized in men's fashion “Comme un camion” in 2017.”

“My name is Romain, I am in charge of pants’ cutting in DAO workshop. I joined the brand in 2017 because I wanted to work with my hands and the DAO values fitted me perfectly. Craftsmanship, teamwork, giving meaning to my daily actions is what makes me wake up every morning to come open the door of the workshop. Besides, if you go through Nancy, we're located at 5 rue Saint Nicolas, just a stone's throw from Place Stanislas.”

Our universe:

We belong to a generation seeking for meaning. I am a self-taught man and Romain has three BA degrees. As for me, I am a lucky man. I make a dream comes true, the one I wish for since teen years : being a fashion designer.
What drive us is to be able to gather our know-how with our workshop machines, to learn and to pass on knowledge.
Giving meaning to the products we manufacture and knowing who we make them for. Seeing the fruit of our labors at the end of the day and telling our customers that part of our reward is not just selling jeans but also and above all, seeing them worn.

What is the purpose of collecting clothes? We do like to talk with all those curious people who come through the door of the workshop, to make them discover our world and simply to share it. Setting up a business means making choices and we have chosen to have a simple relationship with the people who support us and carry (or not) our products.
This is the DAO universe : hands, humans in front of other humans, machines, a relax work environment with hardworking people producing products that you want to wear. So in other words a beautiful sustainable and eco clothing. Finally, we will never repeat it enough, if you stop by our city (Nancy): come and visit us! The workshop (located right in the town center) is exactly 387 steps from Place Stan’ (Stanislas square)!
