Even on vacation, my support for small niche Made in Italy brands continues, small businesses that I love to introduce to you, because behind so much work there are people of the heart with wonderful projects. Today we talk about Marigré, a newborn brand of excellent quality green knitwear.
MARIGRE' MADE IN ITALY ETHICAL KNITWEAR
Tell me about yourself and your project
My name is Georgia Calvo, I'm forty years old and I live in Turin.
Last year my mother, after having collaborated for years with various stylists, proposed me to create a start-up together, following in the footsteps of the family who had a knitwear factory in Turin in the 60s and 70s.
Considering that fashion has always been my passion in addition to Interior Design, I was enthusiastic about the idea and thus the Marigré brand was born, women's knitwear that has eco-sustainability as its characteristic, starting from the materials to the production chain.
All our garments are rigorously Made in Italy.
MARIGRE' GREEN, ORGANIC AND RECYCLED YARNS
What are your ideas and where do you find inspiration?
I am aware that we are experiencing an epochal moment of great difficulty in the global world and by proposing a collection made with organic or recycled yarns we give the possibility to buy more responsibly, offering a quality product that lasts over time.
Marigré is a brand suitable for those looking for a garment with feminine details, well-finished and colorful, always new in stitches and workmanship.
What can we find at Marigré?
We have an ecological heart, we produce with care, attention and passion. Because each product is exactly as we dreamed it.
Marigré opened the e-commerce at the beginning of April 2020 in the midst of the pandemic and as the first summer release we proposed cardigans in pure cotton and pure merino wool in bright colors, with puffed and balloon sleeves, with delicate lurex borders and mini stripes pierced.
Light lace effects for ethereal sweaters to be layered over sleeveless sheath dresses or tank tops, made with dry and slightly shiny yarn to embellish the outfit.
For the more sporty and minimal we have created organic cotton pullovers with puff sleeves and tops with herringbone fretwork in recycled cotton.
What's your style?
Over the years I have understood my needs and figured out what to choose to enhance my body. My look is a mix of styles that don't necessarily follow trends but that characterizes me.
I'm always looking for that extra touch that makes the difference , even in the color range, and that's exactly what I want to offer women with the Marigré ethical knitwear line.
How do you see yourself in the future?
We are going through a very difficult period which unfortunately is not over yet.
But all this has certainly served to make us think, to realize that the era of consumerism is over and that we must be more responsible in our purchases.
Marigré's mantra is BUY LESS BUY BETTER!
And how can I disagree with you Georgia!!! We buy items that can last over time, made with love, with passion and as in your case we try to be attentive to eco-sustainability, our pockets and our planet will benefit from it!
Happy July, fashion addicted friends and make sure you shop strictly made in Italy 😉
