My name is Miriam Pataki, I am the founder of amélyph.
my 3 daughters names: Sophia, Lilly and Amélie combined is how the brandname AMÉLYPH was born.
Once you are a mother your world changes a lot, which isn't a bad thing, but you'll have to figure out for yourself how to handle it for the best. I became a mother at the age of 22 and had to find out what I really loved doing, besides being a mom. my choice was, and luckily I could... to be there for my children for the first two years, I realise I was privileged to do so, unfortunately this choice isn't always a possibility and I'm aware of that.
I was a photomodel for 6 years with my two youngest children for my amazing friend Anna, who is the owner of the world wide known high end baby carrier brand; Artipoppe. she inspired me a lot to follow my gut, my dreams and I can become whoever I want to be. because of her I also met very inspiring women with beautiful visions about motherhood and life in general, they made me feel I can jump in the deep and start doing what I love. They also started something out of their imagination, their creativity and didn't start with a ton of money either.
I'm so glad I found something which I really love doing and can share with other women and their children around the world. I've always had a vision about the clothing I'd like to wear, but these items were hard to find, or I couldn't find them at all. I'm all about classics, timeless items, like a dress you can wear at the grocery store, or you could get married in and everything in between. I want to look sophisticated and elegant but I also want it to feel like it's comfortable as a pyjama.
On day in the mid of summer at my fathers house in Hungary I started drawing, imagining what I would want to wear, which fabrics I love the most, this is how it actually began with AMÉLYPH.. When we got back home I searched for a atelier in The Netherlands, when I almost give up because I didn't exactly knew what I was looking for, I've got a call from Marije, an incredibly inspiring and most genuine woman I've ever met, she's owns the gorgeous 70's inspired clothing brand Lovely Lane. she suggested to help me, give me some tips about the do's and don't - all because 'she would have loved some help when she just started' well you'll understand I cried when we hang up the phone,
From that point everything went really fast.
Please enjoy shopping and feel free to ask me anything in my dm at instagram or trough email: firstname.lastname@example.org
ALL OUR PREORDERS ARE CUSTOM MADE TO AVOID GENERATING OVERSTOCKS AND MORE WASTE TO OUR BELOVED PLANET.
THIS IS WHY THE PREORDER SHIPPING WILL TAKE UP TO 2-4 WEEKS, OR MORE IF MENTIONED.
I don't do or will never do seasonal collections this is because I am putting so much effort in one piece of clothing, there won't be time to do more, my head would explode. I guess 8 is the max at one time, but I prefer creating when I'm ready.
i hope you'll find my collections as timeless as I want them to be and also will be wearing the pieces in a couple of years! do something crazy, buy your newest favorite winter coat in April, keep it in the closet for months, looking forward to finally wear it! or first use it as a blanket in the garden when it gets chilly, but don't spill your red wine on it :)
There will be no sales at AMÉLYPH.COM
With the exception of some products with a good reason which I will mention.
I can't compete with the fast fashion industry..
I noticed myself when I put money aside to buy a product with a higher price, I value it even more, I cherish it, I love the story behind the brand and remember it's made by hand, by people who get a fair pay. I'll tell people about them and I'll even borrow it to them so they can notice the difference themselves. I hope you'll feel the same after buying from us.
All the fabrics are O EKO-TEX certified, bought in the Netherlands/Europe and every piece of clothing is designed by me and ETHICALLY PRODUCED by
Venucci in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
