Founded in 2018 by Tessa Vermeulen, Hai champions premium Chinese silk through its range of bags, accessories, and soon, womenswear. Now based in London, Vermeulen grew up between China and The Netherlands and spent her late teens through early twenties in Shanghai. These formative years gave her an understanding of the quality of silk fabrics and the finesse of its craftsmanship, and served as an early inspiration for the brand. Drawing on memories of heavily embroidered silk bags, Vermeulen’s designs fuse tradition with streamlined, modern shapes for sleek, feminine pieces. Simultaneously delicate and durable, all Hai products are created from 100% silk sourced from Suzhou and proudly made in China.
