Wrap Yourself In

There is no secret that nowadays fashion industry makes big impact not only on us but as well on the nature. Specially, fast fashion industry and manufacters who don't take any responsibility about what they use, how they use it, how they pay their employees etc.

But at the end of day - it's not our job to judge somebody. Our job is to make a choice. Cause, as long there will be buyers, there will be sellers.


Below, you can read descriptions about what SVALBON offers you - ways we make our clothes and accessories , material descriptions.


☽ When SVALBON started as fashion brand, I knew - silk will be one of main fabrics we will use. This has changed a little by now because of the way silk is made. Silk have a lot good sides as - it's natural, it feels really good on your skin, it's one of the most elegant fabrics made, it has temperature control features etc., but the bad side is - the way it's made and high price. At the moment SVALBON don't use 100% silk anymore but mix of silk and polyester. And slowly, we go for 100% polyesters.


☽ Polyesters (satin) - Some years ago satin were really shinny and looked cheap. But nowadays fabric manufacters made step further and there is already polyesters which looks like a silk now.
