responsible & swiss made
SANIKAI is a Swiss based ethical & vegan fashion brand that represents style & quality in a conscious way. Founded in spring 2015 in Zurich by Sanaz Wasser and Kai Wasser, SANIKAI works on a basis of responsibility for our only planet and the love of natural or recycled materials fused with Swiss perfectionism. Timeless design with the highest ethics & quality demands are the heart of SANIKAI’s philosophy. These positive values shine through at every level, from the family-owned sewing studio in Switzerland to the ready to wear garment, the material procurement and the entire CI/CD of the company. For every garment, SANIKAI pays maximum attention to fabric selection, fitting and perfect quality. The company’s core reflects a positive and caring attitude towards the conscious choice to embrace life and wake up dormant senses.
Sanaz Wasser Co-Founder & Designer
With a background in advertising, her choice for a conscious lifestyle placed her at odds with an industry that represents mass consumption. Meanwhile, finding little in the way of vegan and environmentally friendly clothing to match her clear sense of style, she decided to study fashion
design at the Swiss Textile Institute in Zürich. The subject of her final Diploma became the label SANIKAI, for which she plans a big future.

From idea through to finished garment, Kai ensures everything runs sensibly, sustainably, and efficiently. His astute sense of business and analytical skills perfectly complement the creative ability of his business and life partner.
