Who we are?
Hemp clothes have been part of our past for thousands of years
We are Manol and Georgi, and we fell in love with hemp textiles at first sight. This fabric really has unique qualities – in addition to helping the health and comfort of the skin, hemp clothes have a positive impact on nature and are much more durable than industrial cotton.
For Bakka as a brand, attention to detail comes first. That is why we produce our clothes in Bulgaria, Europe – not only to follow the high standards of every seam and cut, but also to support Bulgarian tailors.
In Bulgaria, the processing of hemp products is prohibited and therefore we have to import our fabrics from third countries. The fabrics for our products are manufactured in a sustainable factory in China, which has quality certificates from leading global certification companies such as SGS Group and Control Union Certifications B.V.
Our main goal is as many people as possible to touch the qualities of hemp fabric. That is why we set affordable prices.
We are an open source brand. From the very beginning, we build the brand with the participation of our users.
Hemp clothes have been part of our past for thousands of years. In Bulgaria before the Second World War, hemp, also known as Grysti, was often used in the production of textiles. The first jeans and the first US flag were also made of the extremely durable material. We believe that these miraculous fabrics will determine our path to the sustainable economy of the future. The hemp revolution in the fashion industry has already begun and we are here to make it even more accessible.
What we do to achieve it?
The main goal of the Bakka team is to produce clothes for adults, teenagers, children and babies from hemp and organic materials – organic cotton and linen.
We start with T-shirts (55% hemp, 45% organic cotton) to raise capital to produce a wider range of clothing – clothing and knitwear.
What does Bakka mean?
Persistence that comes after the erasure of the Self, a higher life with God (a word used by the dervishes).
Derived from the Sanskrit word bhaga – a term for “lord, patron”, but also for “wealth, prosperity”. The cognate term in Avestan and Old Persian is baga, of uncertain meaning but used in a sense in which “lord, patron, sharer / distributor of good fortune” might also apply. The cognate in Slavic languages is the root богъ. The name of the city of Baghdad derives from Middle Persian baga-data, “lord-given”.
There is a similar term in Old Persian – baga, used in the sense of “lord, patron, sponsor / distributor of happiness.” In the Slavic languages the word “God” has a similar root.
