Sustainable fashion and accessories made to measure Abruzzo
New Bucolic Handmade Made in Italy
Abruzzo is a land where time is perceived differently. There is space to breathe, allowing the mind to understand different perspectives and improve the quality of life.
Vuscichè investigates the concept of Handmade Sustainable Fashion through the use of available resources and hunts for the treasures of this land that must be preserved for future generations. With these resources, Vuscichè creates accessories and clothing, recycling typical fabrics and involving local artisans.
The historic Abruzzo bed cover returns in Vuscichè collections. We fell in love with the fabric, the patterns, the colours and the idea of giving a second chance to the traditional covers by recycling the fabrics to reinterpret their timeless beauty.
Vuscichè in the local dialect means 'Blend' and this is exactly what we do. We mix old fabric and discards of productions to give life to new garments; give back to the territory, and celebrate the artisan history, tradition, and territorial values. We collect historical blankets in different combinations, where the lighter colour predominates and gives prominence to the drawings of roses or little angels or geometrical patterns.
After collection, we restore and then transform, trying not to lose any part of the original item. By hand, with heart.
Vuscichè is a slow fashion brand, each piece contains a narrative of people and places. Everything is a story, every story has a meaning—a diary of wonders, a tale of the world. The ingredients that make up the recipes of our production are long-lived, natural and recyclable. Far from planned obsolescence. Our artisans, including us, are part of the Abruzzese community.
Long life for existing things with a message.
Recycling reducing waste
We start our production process by sourcing second-hand blankets, bedcovers, sheets or curtains made in Abruzzo. We wash, repair, and restore the items to recycle the fabric to make our garments. We preserve the heritage of the Land of Abruzzo by giving a second chance to traditional materials.
To produce fibre, about 2 trillion gallons of water and 145 million tons of coal are consumed. If you consider the environmental impact of coal, as just one of the several energy sources in the textile industry, the harmful effects are enormous.
Each garment is special and unique.
Locally made and fair trade
Vuscichè champions the local artisan industry. All materials used in Vuscichè products are sourced locally, by recycling traditional fabric.
We follow the principles as set down by the World Fair Trade Organisation: dialogue, transparency and respect. Our process of production is based on collaboration and conversation, the exchange of ideas between local artisans and Vushichè to re-invent and create through the use of traditional fabrics and production methods.
Breathing new life into old, innovating through the power of collabora
Transparent supply chain
Vuscichè supports the Fair Trade business model that puts the needs of people and the planet first in trading relationships and connects producers and consumers through greater transparency of supply chains.
We value the knowledge and experience of the local artisan above the power of the mass-production factory line.
We make-to-order, reducing wastage in terms of products and time. We aim to work with shipping firms who share our values to protect our fragile planet.
