Our Story

Our story begun with Ami Ganiel and Dan Keller, two best friends. They were also (and still are) travellers, adventures, light warriors, rain dancers and party-goers. They realised that the clothes they wanted and needed for their personal expression and their adventurous lifestyles were not readily available at the time. Out of these needs, they began to create comfortable, stylish, defining attires to express and suit their lifestyles .

From the first collection release in the new year of 2,000, Psylo quickly grabbed the attention of unique like minded people and rapidly expanded. Short after that we set up our own factory in Bali, Indonesia. Manufacturing the Psylo line in Bali allows us to build upon local traditions of design, arts and crafts. Where local tailors and artisans are competent in the necessary complex and cutting-edge stitching techniques, mineral washes, colour discharge, hand knitting and a variety of application techniques which create Psylo designs. As a vertically integrated manufacturing company, we have consolidated all stages of production under one roof. From the design, cutting, screen printing and sewing, right through to the photography and marketing itself, all is done by our personally-trained staff.

At first, Ami Ganiel single handedly created Psylo designs for both Men and Women lines. As we grew, we developed and delivered artistic collaborations crafted by duo husband & wife, Ami Ganiel and Shoki Nasseri, who joined Psylo in 2005. Over the years Psylo continued to grow and expanded into a full manufacturing company. The multinational design team has been infusing their exceptional character into the creation of Psylo styles that still exist today. Despite the upscaling of producing, every piece of Psylo clothing continues to be produced with all of their original intent.

Starting as two friends selling their original designs out of a camper van in music festivals, in 2007 we opened the first Psylo flag shop in the famous Camden’s Stables Market in London, a home for alternative culture. Following its success, Samui 1st flag shop was opened in 2010 & a 2nd shop on 2013. The shop  at Playa Del Carmen in 2014 and Tulum in 2016. Our shop in Bali has been in operation since 2009. Still connected to where we started we continue to bring Psylo designs to music festivals around the world every summer. We hope you will visit us next time you are around.

2006. Psylo opens its first store in Bali on the famous ‘Legian street’ where thousands of foreign tourists visit each year.

2007. Psylo opens its second store in the funky Camden Town of London.

2009. Psylo opens its third store in the same area of Camden Town, London. The shop is 100sqm and fully designed and decorated in the Psylo style.  All materials & decorations are brought from Indonesia creating a unique future primitive look.       At this time “Psylo Fashion LTD” is registered in the UK.

2011. Psylo Bali store is relocated to a different location in ‘Petittenget street’ , a very upcoming high-end developing street in Seminyak. The shop is part of a Psylo ‘complex’ which includes two other galleries and a Body & Soul centre. The complex is made from recycled and antique wood, in the original spirit of Psylo Future Primitive Style.

2011. February. Psylo Opens its fourth store in the main shopping street of the very touristic Island Koh Samui, in the south of Thailand. The shop is 100sqm, designed in the Psylo original style, giving the shop a warm yet exclusive feel.

It has been a beautiful journey of growth for Psylo - as individuals, as a collective, as a style .

The future is full of wonder and we are open to what may come our path.

 

Size Guide

The majority of our garments fit a little snuggly to flatter all average fit body types.

Sizes 1 – 4 are more specific for products that are meant to be tight fitting, and hugging. You will mainly see this in Tops, Dresses, and Leggings.
Sizes SM / ML fits more loosely, which gives more allowance for flexibility. You will mainly see this in Skirts, Kaftans, or Vests. 

Sizes 36 - 48 very specific, for products that are more tailored and / or meant to be very tight fitting.  

Please refer to the 'Psylo Size Chart' below to help you assess which size suits you best. Please make sure, especially when choosing a product with a very specific size, that you are measuring yourself correctly.  

If you need further assistance please contact our Customer Service.

A broad information about the materials we use will also help you get a better idea how the clothes will fit you:

Cotton Lycra
Tencel
Most products are tight fitting, however the material is stretchy, so you have a lot of flexibility to choose between sizes according you your taste – whether you like it tighter, or a bit loose.

CVC Slub Double Knit
Cotton French Terry
CVC Cotton Terry
The fabric is stretchable but not elastic so it gives minimal flexibility in between sizes. It will never be a tight fit (Jacket) and we will use elastic / adjustable straps in the waistbands for extra fitting.

Cotton Canvas
Cotton Twill Stretch
Cotton Twill 16s / 20s
Cotton Linen
There is little to no stretch in the fabric. The cut is more tailored, and the fit is more specific, with almost no flexibility in between sizes.
