ètico – Sartoria Marchigiana is a project conceived by Marta Baldassarri and Valentina Vitali.
We are two girls from the Marche region with previous experience in the fashion industry (the second most polluting in the world) who decided to change course and train in the field of modeling / tailoring at the craft level: trying to recover and promote old, noble crafts, we joined the international movement called Slow Fashion per tentare di rallentare non solo i produttori ma anche i consumatori.
Slow down to realize that you don't need to compulsively produce and buy clothing, you need to take a step back and reevaluate what's really important: ourselves and the world around us.
To try to reduce the environmental impact we choose for our collections only natural fabricsguarantors of quality and durability, of neutral color, coming from controlled supply chains or from company scraps and inventories; the colors and decorations of our clothes are the result of our creativity, supported by the research and experience gained in Natural Tincture and inEcoprint (botanical printing technique that, through firing processes, imprints imprints and colors of flowers, leaves, roots on textile materials).
From the idea to the first sketches, from cutting to sewing, from white fabrics to colorful dresses: in our atelier located in the small village of Ripe San Ginesio (MC) at the foot of the Sibillini mountains, our creations and your customizations come to life.
There has to be a better way to do the things we want, a way that doesn't pollute the sky or the rain or the earth.
