We start our production process by sourcing second-hand blankets, bedcovers, sheets or curtains that have been made in Abruzzo. We wash, repair, restore the items in order to recycle the fabric to make our garments. We preserve the heritage of the Land of Abruzzo by giving a second chance to the traditional fabrics .
Not only. 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. We make our clothes with re-used fabrics or fabric discards. The pattern remains the same while the fabric is re-invented. Each garment is special and unique.
Locally made and fair trade
Vuscichè champions local artisan industry. All materials used in Vushichè products are sourced locally, through 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, exchange of ideas between local artisans and Vushichè in order to re-invent and create through the use of traditional fabrics and production methods. Breathing new life into old, innovating through the power of collaborating.
Transparent supply chain
Vuscichè supports the Fair Trade business model that puts the needs of people and 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 in order to protect our fragile planet.
