The end of the year is almost here! And what a great year it has been for us. Bali finally reopened without going in quarantine for tourists, we opened our first Brand store in Bali, launched the TET. x Co collection and more wonderful moments for which we are very grateful. In this blog we will look back on a very beautiful and (above all) sustainable 2022! Curious about our highlights of 2022? Then read on quickly!
First Brandstore + re-opening Bali!
We start with two very special highlights of 2022. Because in February we opened our very first Brand store in Canggu, Bali. Definitely a dream come true! Before the store was ready, it had to be completely built, which was quite a process, we can tell you! You can see the whole process in our first vlogs on YouTube, click here to watch!
Later on, at the beginning of March there was finally no quarantine needed for tourists from 23 countries, included The Netherlands! Luckily that made it easier to come to Bali after almost 2 years of Covid.
TET. x CO Collection
All winter we have worked very hard on a very special collection in collaboration with Dutch content creator, stewardess and actress Cowiththeflow! Together with Co we created a swim- and resort wear collection. The collection, launched on May 11, is all about dreaming big and traveling the world! And is divided into 2 color themes inspired by the beautiful places Marrakesh and Cape Town. We are very proud of this collaboration and thankful that many of you ordered shortly after the launch!
World Ocean Day
Our next highlight of 2022 is the celebration of World Ocean Day with a really nice boat day through Haarlem with our favorite influencers from The Netherlands. The weather was pretty good with a nice sun, cold rosé wine in abundance, snacks, a fun group of girls and of course everyone wearing TET.! We have designed a limited scarf especially for World Ocean Day 2022. The longer you look at the print, the more there is to see! This scarf tells a story to look beyond the surface (literally ;)). We wanted to challenge you to think about what your contribution can be to a more beautiful world! Of course, you can wear it as a scarf, but because it is a bit bigger it can easily be worn as a top, bandana, hairband or even as a skirt over your bikini bottom!
Pop-up store, Haarlem (The Netherlands)
After we opened the store in Bali, we received a lot of questions this year whether there will also be a store in the Netherlands. We would love that and great to hear that there is so much interest in this! We therefore thought it was great to have a pop-up store in the heart of Haarlem for one-month last August! We certainly hope to open a permanent store in the future, because this was a big success! Keep you updated 😉
TET. Second life clothing event and Green Friday
Finally, we are approaching the end of the year. Unfortunately, the 25th of November was Black Friday again. But we made a statement on Green Friday against Black Friday: the day when screaming discounts and cheap deals fly around us. In this way, Black Friday greatly encourages impulse buying and overconsumption. And with that, we are depleting our earth at a rapid pace.
For us, happiness does not lie in discounts, but in doing something good for nature! That’s why we organized our first TET. Second life clothing event on the 25th of November in Bali! Because why should you buy new clothes when you can buy some really nice preloved/secondhand items from our favorite influencers in Canggu, Bali? And 50% of the proceeds went to the charity: Sungai Watch. Who is working with their team every day to create solutions to stop the flow of plastic pollution from going into the ocean.
We would love to thank everyone who helped us to make this a wonderful year! And especially thank you for saving and giving back to the oceans with us, because only together we can make a difference!
We wish you an amazing New Year’s Eve with your loved ones and may all your dreams come true in 2023!
Stay healthy and keep making sustainable choices to save the ocean with us 😉
