About

We are a team of two: Anna and Monta with a mission to create products for long term relationship building. Inspired by the 75–year–long Harvard Grant study we got carried away with a new product idea — to create an unprecedented clothing collection for couples.

Research shows that a hug a day can improve the nervous system and boost the immune system among other benefits. The human touch is like a lightning conductor for stress relief. That is why each garment of be–with has its specially designed secret passages on the back that allow to touch the partner, without anyone noticing. The first dark–tone collection features shirts with short and long sleeves for both women and men, as well as dresses and cardigans. The passages do not reveal skin and cold does not get through them. The garments are made of selected, pleasant for the touch fabrics: cotton, brushed cotton, Micro–modal® and eco certified bamboo fibre.
