The founders of the Bamboo Panda brand came up with the idea of founding an eco-friendly fashion brand while on a vacation in the Philippines. Upon return, they embarked on working on designing products that will be produced from natural materials like bamboo, sandalwood, zebrawood and cork wood, which undergo treatment with mixtures of oils and waxes for durability. The designs are minimalistic and each piece is handmade. Accessories in the brand’s collections include sunglasses, wallets and bags, extraordinarily beautiful wood watches, and even sneakers made of cork wood. If you need a present that stands out, check out Bamboo Panda at 5Concept store (65 Teryan St.), Muraba Shop (24 Moskovyan St.) and Yerevan Mall on 34 Arshakunyats Ave.

Arevik Arakelyan, the founder of Artuyt, came us with the idea of creating a brand based on the museum-shop concept after visiting Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam. Realizing how much Armenia can offer with its history of art and paintings by contemporary Armenian masters, she founded a line of scarves based on already existing paintings, ancient Armenian stamp ornaments, as well as paintings young artists create specially for the brand. According to Miss Arakelyan, this is another way to beautifully present Armenian art to the world and, why not, recall it once again for ourselves. You can view the latest collection at 5Concept or at the specialized store on 26/3 Vazgen Sargsyan St.

4. 47
