Activist by nature: the Thief is reclaiming the encounter between fashion and self–expression. The Thief seeks to avoid any compromise between natural self‐expression and high‐end fashion.
Founded in 2006 in Toronto, Canada by Sonja den Elzen, Thieves was born out of her desire to harmonize her ethical commitments to sustainability with her passion for design. Thieves pieces use the subtle asymmetry of form, detail and color that we find in all natural bodies to modify and play with clean lines and classic cuts resulting in an urban organic aesthetic. Thieves uses sustainable fabrics such as hemp blends, peace silks, organic wools, organic cottons, lyocell, recycled materials, organic linen, hemp, and soy. All pieces are conceived and assembled in Toronto.
