Hi there, my name is Pam and I am the creator and founder of "HUNAK - one of a kind".
The Brand was born in Mexico in 2018 and the word "HUNAK" comes from the ancient Maya language, which is still spoken in the small indigenous communities and means "unique", just "one of a kind!"
I'm based in Zurich Switzerland and rooted in the electronic nightlife scene as a performance artist. As an imaginative and creative person, I started to design my own costumes, accessories and head pieces for my appearances.
Due to increasing inquiries and a high demand, I found out that many other people and free spirits like me are interested in my outfits. Within no time my hobby started to thrive into a business and I converted my apartment into a creative workplace and showroom.
My creations are exceptional and as a open-minded person I have a keen eye for special styles. I discover the gems, fabrics and amazing materials on my travels, places like vintage shops, flea markets or local artisans and I use them in combination with modern elements. All HUNAK one of a kind artwork pieces are handmade and out of the ordinary, inspired by art, dance, travel and culture.
My mission is to design exclusive, wearable art for the festival crowd, artists and fashion lovers, that are unique as the people who wear them.
Because we are all one of a kind, we are all HUNAK!
Thanks to a happy coincidence during one of my traveling, I met Marlon Mercanti, owner of a family-run tour agency in the Yucatan Peninsula, who brought me closer to the real Mayan culture.
He is dedicated to responsible and sustainable tourism, offering excursion outside of mass tourism in Harmony with nature and the vulnerable Maya communities. His work is really important to promote the direct economy, to ensure that tourism becomes a real source of income for the locals.
Inspired by his philosophy, I founded the "HUNAK SOCIAL" project together with my nomad friends Cristina and Marzia. "HUNAK SOCIAL" is a sustainable project born with passion and a vision, namely to support the artisan and create economic opportunities.
"HUNAK SOCIAL" focuses on traditional arts, crafts and fair trade.
We explore local markets, building partnerships around the world to sourcing beautiful HUNAK hand-made fashion and jewelry pieces that are culture-driven and of very high Quality. These ethical, handcraft fashion goods are also offered in my online shop.
Let's be social and support HUNAK communities!
