For rest and love!
In a world filled with mass flow production and hyper-consumerism, handcrafted artisan stories keep us together.Our products are made from nature. We work with resources that are recyclable and sustainable.
Each Forrest & Love piece is handcrafted using traditional techniques, wrapped in very minimalistic packaging and offers Ayurveda and vitality benefits.
Together we want to redefine fashion and lifestyle. With Forrest & Love, you choose handicrafts over mass flow production, tradition over trend and sustainability over fast fashion.
It all started with a gift.
Shamikas mother gifted her a copper jug while she was on her India trip. On coming back to Germany, she flaunted this handmade piece of art to her friends, colleagues and then thankfully also to Rohit. If you know Rohit, you will know he finds business opportunity in almost anything – he is kind of loaded with new ideas. Soon the first concept and prototypes were ready and they presented their copper water bottles at a tradefair in Munich.
Rohit & Shamika were amazed to witness massive interest for a simple product that they have known since their childhood. Both of them have grown up drinking copper water and know its magical benefits in and out!
Within a few weeks they were in India and spent a month setting up their own production base with a family run copper manufacturing firm in North India. Throughout their first production, they remained in India and got to know the manufacturing processes first hand. This also helped them keep high quality and fair working conditions at check. The artisans hired by Forrest & Love are masters of their handicraft. Over the years, a trustworthy cooperation has been formed with the artisans; which allows Forrest & Love to spread wings even wider.
