+ OUR WORLD +
WITHIN ALL THIS CHAOS WE FIND PEACE
Being lovers for a while, they reached a point where they decided to reveal their creativity through Peace+Chaos.
They set up their atelier and production in Athens, 2015 is called their Year Zero. The R&D and the Printing of the fabrics take place at the Peace+Chaos’s, 750m2, headquarters. A gathered experience in one place, where the artists merge their passion and skills.
The creation of a collection, starting from the conception of the idea, the design of each print, to the production itself, is considered a very personal affair. When they design, sometimes Nefeli starts a piece and it is Dimitris who will complete it or vice versa. Each one will add a new element and guide the design to a new path and towards a completely new destination.
This interconnection, that may be a contradiction sometimes, is the result of a creative and fully inspirational process, expressing their opposite energies.
The design, the selection of the fabrics and the actual printing is all done inhouse, ensuring the final products’ creative and technical excellence.
It is Nefeli’s + Dimitri’s passion for prints and clothing that is always with them. It is within all this Chaos that they find Peace.

+ OUR CHAKA +
A SACRED SYMBOL
A sacred symbol inspired by the Inca Cross, indicating the Creation of Life, expressing Transition.
A key, leading the Natural, Human + Spiritual Existence to a Higher Level. The strongest symbol of the oldest culture of the Andes is called Chakana.
It is the most complete, holy and geometrical design of the Incas. Traditionally, Chakana (Chaka) represents the constellation of the Southern Cross. According to the opinion of the old Andes population, this was the center of the Universe and was easy to find when they looked up in the sky at night.
Either worn as a talisman or used in architectural design, such as on the Condor Temple in Machu Picchu, each side, level and corner of the Chaka conveys a meaning;
From the top to the left: The three Levels of Existence. The Lower world of souls, the Middle world of humans and the Upper world of Gods. It represents the Underworld, the Earth and the Heaven.
From the top to the right: The fundamental Rules of Life. The ones we should obey. Be honest, do not steal and be active.
From the bottom to the left: The main Codes of Respect. The knowledge+wisdom, the work+services and the love+beauty.
From the bottom to right: The Ηoly Αnimals of the lower world, the land and the sky. The ones who Guide us to each level of existence. The Snake is the guide in the lower world, the Jaguar leads us to the world of humans and the Condor is the guide in the world of Gods.
The Centre represents the centre of the Inca Empire and the people who live in it. But most of all, is the center of the Cycle of Life.
The four Sides sum up for the North, South, East and West and the four fundamental existential elements – the Earth, the Water, the Fire & the Air, as well as the four big stars in the South Cross.
Chaka, as an ancient sacred symbol that totally incorporates Peace+Chaos’s philosophy and values.
It is officially registered and is now used as a trademark on the Brand’s collections.
