sustainability made easy
We are super excited to introduce our brand new SOFT WORKWEAR UNIFORM, a minimal two piece suit for women, designed for all body shapes that has an extended garment life cycle as we offer a full service in repairs, redying and recycling. The soft workwear uniform is a statement piece for all occasions that was designed with a group of women to create the ultimate everyday outfit that combines comfort, wearability, longevity and timeless minimal design.
Not only is this good for you, but it's also good for the planet as it reduces waste and water consumption by up to 50%.
Currently our statement suit comes only in white, but we are looking to increase this to up to four different colours based on the choices you as our backers make.
We are launching this new range on Kickstarter in May and are inviting you to get up to 40% off the RRP by being one of the first backers by signing up here
the silfir circularity concept
“Consumers aren’t inherently bad, but they are overwhelmed with the task of organising themselves into living a truly sustainable lifestyle,” said Hannah Kromminga, founder of Silfir. “In order to initiate positive change in the world, we need to develop consumer solutions that are achievable and inspiring.”
designed to be happy with less
The piece was designed by a group of women striving to create the ultimate everyday outfit combining comfort, wearability, longevity and timeless design. It’s an outfit that is suited to all body types and sizes. The suit incorporates clever design details such as an elastic band in the back of the trousers and three different pockets that make it functional while maintaining its sleek aesthetic.
make longevity effortless
Silfir offers full cradle-to-cradle service with the purchase of a Soft Workwear Uniform. Customers can send garments back for repairs, re-dying and recycling, making it possible to extend the life of each garment and have a profound impact on the environment. If customers wear clothes just three times longer than usual, their water, carbon dioxide and waste impact decreases by around 60 percent. Silfir’s service experience makes this important step towards true sustainable consumption as effortless as possible.
strive towards zero waste
The garment is made from high-quality Lenzing Tencel, an innovative fabric created with sustainable wood pulp which has half the water impact of other natural fibres or viscose. Siflir produces and sews the fabric in Spain and Portugal, ensuring a short lead time and fair working conditions. Moreover, Silfir has partnered with New York City-based company Returnity to provide customers with a reusable shipping bag made from recycled plastic bottles. At the end of the garment’s life, Silfir recycles the fabric as yarn to be integrated in its sweaters.
