A more SUSTAINABLE AND ETHICAL FASHION is possible,
one that pollutes less,
a fashion that tries to have lower impact on the future of the planet.
An industry that is more respectful of its workers
and a more transparent fashion,
A WAY of making fashion more FILOTIMO
OUR COMMITMENT IN EVERY CHOICE
‘Filotimo’ is a Greek word that describes a complex intertwining of virtues, representing a real WAY OF LIFE, a desire to do things to the best of one’s ability: “doing something useful for others that is also good for oneself”. Every single decision, however small, can make a difference. In this, everyone has their share of RESPONSIBILITY.
Because they are pleasant to wear and, unlike synthetic ones, have beneficial effects on the body. They are comfortable and can be used to the fullest, while amortizing the energy and resources used in their manufacture over time. Of the natural fibres available we also choose the materials with the lowest environmental impact, taking into account their entire life cycle.
Because it can guarantee decent working conditions and working weeks of the right length for everyone involved. On our labels you will find the words “Fatto in Italia, per davvero” which means “Really made in Italy”. Filotimo clothes are, from the first to last, from start to finish, designed, tried and tested, quality-controlled and manufactured in Verona, Italy. In addition, this gives us complete control, to produce only what is necessary, thus avoiding unnecessary inventories.
The concept of recycling is particularly important to us, and it represents one of the cardinal virtues of the world of sustainability. The smallest scraps of fabric from the Filotimo production, which can no longer be used in the manufacture of clothes and accessories, are cut and processed to become RECYCLED PAPER, business cards or labels in Sonia’s Muriel workshop.
