Het verhaal van Threebyone.
Three By One is a brand of small batch organic products, based in Antwerp, Belgium & Cambridge, UK, owned by Laura.
While travelling for my denim design job I came across a family owned company with a proud heritage of being one of the pioneer coconut oil manufacturers in Sri Lanka, formerly known as Ceylon.
The family have been coconut oil millers in Sri Lanka since 1913, when they established a state of the art (at that time) coconut oil factory. During the 1983 terrorist riots in Sri Lanka, their ancestral property & coconut oil mill was burned to the ground. In 2012, noticing the emerging trend for coconut oil, one of the sons reinstated the family business.
Fast forward to 2015. I was busy working for one of the big 3 denim brands & working closely with the other son who had gone into the textile industry. A non work conversation, about an idea I had that never came to fruition, led me to hear the family story & before I knew it had my own jars of coconut oil on the way to Belgium!
The product range predominantly consists of coconut based products, all produced from a single harvest of coconuts.
