Manufacturing an upcycled product takes more than 3 hours for every single item. The original garment is unstitched, ironed and then re-crafted into a completely new piece, with different shapes and details from the original.
This entire process is done by hand, one by one. All garment are entirely (re)Made in Italy.
Coming each from a product with a story of wear, all pieces are different in shades and colours, although consistent in sizing. For this reason they are all uniquely numbered and signed one by one by the seamstress who sewed them.
Tecla cape is crafted from a pre-existing garment. Extra fabrics, including that used for buttons, come from Candiani deadstock and leftovers.
Nothing used in the creation of this garment has therefore been specifically produced.
Not a sigle drop of water is used in the manufacturing of this garment: its colour is exclusively the result of the story of wear of the original garment, which we accurately selected.
Absolutely no chemical products are ever used.
