Let's make it right, rather than less bad.
It all began with an exchange of fashion designers from Berlin & Dhaka, Bangladesh. This trip, with the group delving into issues of sustainability and fair trade, left STILL garments' designer Elke Fiebig deeply impressed and inspired, and made her create this first sample collection - a study in blue.
It is entirely made of textiles sourced as pre-consumer waste from a big production site she visited in Dhaka.
STILL garments turns them into loose-fitting and casually elegant favourites by zero waste pattern construction. Garments that can easily be combined in a variety of ways, that are versatile and in part reversible for multiple
wearing options, to become long-lasting wardrobe staples.
Carefully finished and featuring hand-stitched "functional" embroidery, each item is piece-dyed individually, turning every single one into a one-of-a-kind object, bearing the traces of its maker. Natural indigo helps turn the rather anonymous leftover-textiles into STILL garments' signature delicate fabrics.
100% of textile waste turned into a zero waste capsule collection.
