"Old age exists when you start saying: I've never felt so young."
IAIOS is a project that reflects on old age and breaks with stereotypes of the elderly. We see yayos and yayas as active, innovative and stylish people. They inspire us in our designs that recover the "grandfather" sweaters for the young public.
Each sweater tells the story of a senior citizen
Most of our designs are inspired by the history and life of an elderly person. That's why, every time you buy a sweater IAIOS, we give you a printed biography of a yayo or yaya. Their lives, adventures and peculiarities.
WHY DO YOUNG PEOPLE NOT DO OLD PEOPLE THINGS?
IAIOS recovers the sweater of a lifetime; the one that was made to last for many years. A sweater that is loved and cared for, just as our great-grandfather Amadeu taught us.
Our grandfather Amadeu created the first sweater factory 5 generations ago. He was a very creative and enterprising person. His work inspires us to this day.
