Spanish designer Nieves Ruiz Ramos had worked in the fashion industry for 11 years before she was decided to go it alone and found Bibico in 2007. She was uninspired by the trend of cheap, fast fashion and wanted to make ethical fashion that had timeless appeal and that people could wear over and over again.
The collections are stitched, woven and knitted from high quality natural materials in fair trade cooperatives. Much of the knitwear at Bibico is made by hand and the woven collections feature hand embroidered detailing. Everyone that makes Bibico clothing gets paid a fair price for the work they do and works in a safe and healthy working environment..
