ABOUT

       Based in Copenhagen, APERIE is a design brand with a conscience, dedicated to creating unique expressions by fusing style with ethics. From office supplies to the soft blankets keeping us warm in the winter, APERIE guarantees high quality products made from exclusive natural materials such as leather, wood, organic cotton and fine alpaca wool.

The world is our inspiration. We are a global company, but our line of products is rooted in the renowned Scandinavian design traditions we have inherited, emphasizing functionality and minimalism as key elements.

While our products are proudly designed in the North, they are ultimately inspired and made by the whole world: our production is located in developing countries, and by choosing APERIE you are ensured a product made from exclusive natural materials, carefully crafted by our skilled suppliers. 

We believe that true style comes from knowing the origins of the things we surround ourselves with. We embrace knowledge and encourage others to do the same. This sense of mission runs through everything we do: from maintaining environmentally high standards and a strong social focus in our production, to the high quality materials we use.

 

       THE WAY WE WORK 

       APERIE is a company concerned with sustainability and ethics: our suppliers are based in developing countries, and apart from being
       our main source of inspiration, they are also our main concern. This echoes in our ambition to create jobs and ensure fair payment to
       alleviate poverty. Our main focus is to create awareness by educating our suppliers on the issues they encounter, making them strong
       and knowledgeable ambassadors of best practice solutions.

       MATERIALS

       The materials we work with have been chosen for their unique qualities and timeless expressions. That’s why our leather commodities
       will be life companions to the people who treat and care for them properly, using the guidelines that are attached to each
       product. The hollow structure of the alpaca hair, which allows the air enclosed in the hair to expand and contract, ensures a
       comfortable balance in temperature at all times, and is therefore a perfect fit for our climate. The alpaca is also unique in that it
       requires a minimum of cleaning: Resistant to dirt and smell, the wool is a timeless and high quality material that will keep you warm

MISSION

APERIE aspires to create better living conditions for the people involved in every aspect of our production, catalyzing self-empowerment by helping them to generate their own income. We work in developing countries marked by considerable poverty, and at the core of our brand lies a wish to engage directly with local suppliers without the use of middlemen, aiming to secure maximum value retention and direct payment for their expertise.


With this effort, we aim to expand and develop local trade and resources, positioning new suppliers as valuable sources of exclusive natural materials on the global market.

All APERIE products are made from locally sourced, natural materials. We base our production on environmentally gentle techniques, emphasizing the use of natural dyes and tanning techniques as key components of a sustainable philosophy.

We take our global responsibility seriously, and APERIE’s mission is clear: we wish to develop into a leading sustainable company with international endeavours, offering high quality products with a conscience.
