[ who we are ]

SUNO is a women’s luxury lifestyle brand with a unique sensibility rooted in fresh silhouettes, vivid prints and textures for the modern woman. Established in 2008, the brand is carried by over 70 retailers worldwide.

[ where we come from ]

Max Osterweis first conceived of SUNO after witnessing post-election violence in Kenya. Utilizing the vast collection of Kenyan Kangas he had gathered over the years of traveling, he joined forces with designer Erin Beatty, a Parsons School of Design graduate who has worked with brands such as the GAP, Donna Karan Collection and Generra, to launch a luxury lifestyle brand with a conscience.

[ design ]

The principles that define the brand are unique design, quality craftsmanship and effortless functionality. The philosophy of individuality and confidence applies to every garment conceived of in our NYC studio where designers sketch, bead and sew life into each collection.

[ craftsmanship ]

SUNO clothing is produced primarily in the New York Garment District and in India, with smaller production batches coming from Romania, Italy and Kenya. We are committed to collaborating with the local artisans and crafts people in each country, to create fresh and optimistic collections of unique prints, textures and embroideries, layered together to build a bright and modern wardrobe for a confident, independent woman. Created in artisanal workshops, each piece is crafted and designed for creative, intelligent women who are not afraid to stand out. The workshops we partner with world-wide are committed to helping women support their families and enhance the economic conditions of their lives.
