Circularity by STYLEcult:
We are a responsible business with purpose.
Selection and Sourcing
No pre consumer waste as we already source from the circular economy, so there in no excess samples, swatches, off cuts, production waste, left over fabric yardage, damaged stock, or unsold collections.
All pieces are vintage, quality designer from the circular fashion system.
Adornment and Modification
Upcycling is reverse engineering of the creative process.
How to make as few cuts as possible to maximise STYLE and minimise waste. There are defined limitations when working in this process stream.
Upcycling adds new value, it's the mother of reinvention.
We don’t have a dying process = no chemicals or inks or pollutants entering the water ways
We adorn by hand in Melbourne Australia = local and socially ethical
No factory mass production = No use of oil products, no water wastage, No forest destruction, No additional climate change impacts, No human rights abuse, and No air pollution.
Maintenance and Care
Items should be maintained as per the care tag. It’s an investment piece- Take care of it!
Steam your pieces regularly. Steaming not only keeps your pieces looking smart, it also freshens the fabric and kills odour – causing bacteria. Be mindful of the adornments when steaming.
Store your piece individually in a quality suit bag for protection.
