RADICE was born with one mission: to make nightwear of the finest materials to help you sleep better and wake up fully charged. Read here how we believe in and how we started. #bettersleepforabetteryou
Sleep and recreation as root of our well-being
RADICE was founded in early 2017 in Munich. From the very beginning, we wanted to create nightwear that not only feels good - thanks to the softness of the silk on your skin, and because we know it’s produced sustainably - but that will also have an impact on your daily life. Sleep is such a significant part of our lifetime that we want to help create the best possible environment for drifting off and waking up full of energy. RADICE, Italian for “roots”, combines two worlds: Your roots in your own home, as the place where you sleep and dream the most, and your “wanderlust”, which makes you travel the world and maybe discover new roots in faraway places.
Sustainable Sourcing and the Finest Materials
Passion also means dedication, so we spent almost one year visiting factories around the globe, meeting with suppliers and testing fabrics. We finally decided to work with a small boutique in the south of Shanghai, which has been known for its expertise in silk production for over 5,000 years. It was founded by three women – friends who decided to start their own business after university and who spent the last decades mastering the creation of silk garments. When we first met them, we were amazed by the quality of their fabrics and even more by their passion to produce outstanding garments - each of which a small piece of art.
Perfect wherever you may be
We partnered with local artists from all over Europe to create unique prints – prints that are a reflection of our travels and adventures. Places we have visited, animals we have admired – all those memories that awaken our wanderlust and spark that desire to plan our next journey. RADICE embodies the spirit of freedom, the spirit of doing what you love, the feeling of getting closer and closer to fulfilling your dreams. With RADICE, we are ready to satisfy our restless desire of exploring and leave for the next unexplored city and that road leading to an unknown destination.
