About us

Welcome, hej, hola! We are ISH & ISH, a two-women art collective.

Our story started in 2017, when we met each other at the workplace, in the heart of Yorkshire. Bibi Klamer, a textile designer from Copenhagen and Mercedes Leon, an illustrator from Spain.

Tired of the amount of waste of the current fashion industry, SpanISH and DanISH decided to start a business creating timeless designs and beautiful things for the world that will do little or no harm to it – by carefully selecting our partners and suppliers from local and independent providers.

We were inspired by our mother's and grandmother's beautiful silk scarves – each of us had treasured a little collection, passed on to us by the previous generation, and we felt we needed and wanted to make a tribute to those hard working (and very elegant) women that taught us all about love, taste, fashion – and some common sense.

Ish & Ish was born to be a brand that will work to blur the gender lines, and embrace a new unisex approach – while keeping our traditional heritage, and reducing the impact on the environment. Being ethical and always working with the highest quality standards. Creating a product that you can collect, wear, and cherish – something worth keeping and passing on.

So that's how ISH & ish was created; from a mutual passion for all things colourful and illustrative that not only look good – but are actually pretty good too!

We hope you will join us on this adventure.
