Our Story: Milena and Duey

I just want to take out a moment and give a little background on me and my brother Duey (Dusan). Growing up on our family farm, we were wrapped up in wool from our family’s sheep, sheared by hand, washed spun and knitted by our aunts and grandmothers. We were surrounded by things handmade and natural textiles. I grew up and became an engineer, and Duey became an artist. But neither of us were truly fulfilled in our work until we decided to come together and start FRÈRE DU NORD. 

Since then, it’s been an amazing journey in making clothes that represented all of the things we believed in — integrity and innovation in design, with beautiful sustainable materials and taking care of the people who make them. We are looking forward to using this blog for sharing more about ourselves and the things that we are passionate about.
