Yanna of Tizz & Tonic

Tizz & Tonic was founded by two sisters, Yanna & Imke, in 2017. They are a Canadian-sister duo who ended up in Germany starting a business together.

They were raised by culture-curious, world-traveling parents that taught them that the sky’s the limit, but the sky is beautiful and should be kept as so.

So they created Tizz & Tonic to get you more excited about greener fashion and be inspired to invest in better clothing.

Uncomplicated style, uncompromised ethics – that’s what Tizz & Tonic are all about. Designed to energize you for each new day!
