Aloes comes from the word Aloeswood, is a type of wood that produces an aromatic scent when infected by mold. Also known as Gaharu in Japan, this wood has a distinct fragrance that is used as incense and perfumes. Prior to the infection, this wood is odorless, and relatively light colored that turns dark as the infection progresses.
Just like the wood without its mold, Aloes is not just a name, it is not just about creating a fashion label. It is about expressing and incorporating ideas, creativity and heritage; to be a profound influence on our community as well.
