What makes us unique?

Wabi Sabi EcoFashionConcept is a women´s contemporary fashion brand inspired by great design, excellent quality and sustainability.

Designed for the urban professional woman, our dresses are elegant and timeless with just the right amount of that special touch.

Versatile enough to take you from work straight to a night on the town, each style is thoughtfully crafted to become your favorite item in the closet.

• Quality: We only work with the best materials and with suppliers that guarantee the highest level of workmanship and ethics. We believe that comfort and the feel of a garment is extremely important. That's why we only use materials that have a nice, soft touch.

• Design: All styles are created to flatter a woman´s figure. Our dresses are created for the modern and sophisticated woman who wants to look stunning and needs her clothes to be functional. Our styles are fashionable but will not go out of fashion from one year to the next.

• Sustainability: We use certified ecological materials such as organic cotton and tencel. We manufacture under fair trade conditions and respect the environment.

Wabi Sabi dresses are Fashionable, Functional, Flattering and Eco-Friendly.

It's time to Look Good and Feel Great!

Why Eco Fashion?  

We live in a global world where products, people and particles are in constant movement. Fashion is one of the most contaminating industries. Toxic chemicals and other residuals from manufacturing the clothes you wear have a global reach, crossing continents and oceans contaminating the food you eat, the water you drink, and the air you breathe.

We believe health and style should go hand and hand. 

Help us make this a reality. Click on the "Back This Project" button to support this campaign!

All Kickstarter Funds will go towards production and the launch of our first signature collection. 

The Collection:  "Sustainable City Style" 

Designed for city life and inspired by sustainability our first collection brings these two concepts together. That's why we've named the designs after some of the most sustainable cities across the globe. 

The collection is composed of styles made from both knit and woven fabrics, all are 100% Eco-Friendly and luxurious.

The knit styles are made from a blend of organic cotton, tencel and spandex. They are lined with the same knit fabric. Some styles are even reversible.

Risks and challenges

We have already made samples and pre-production runs of our dresses that have been worn and tested by real women.

Our team has the appropriate experience and skill set to make everything run smoothly. However, delays are always possible. Actually they are quite common in production runs. We know that and have taken the necessary steps to ensure that any delays will not be an inconvenience to you, our backers.

I have a finance and consulting background and been working in production of fashion lines since 2007. All production facilities and necessary materials are in place and ready to start as soon as we reach our funding goal. Our manufacturing facilities and material suppliers create product for some of your favorite runway brands. At the same time they are committed and enthusiastic about the Wabi Sabi brand.

In case of an overwhelming demand we can produce more fabric and we have back up production facilities in line if they are needed.

Despite all of this if there are any bumps in the road, we will communicate about them freely and frequently with our supporters.
