INSPIRATION BEHIND THE VÄRDE SUIT
Värde translates to worth; these are the matching trousers to the Värde Jacket. In order to wear this jacket the wearer must know their worth, never doubt their worth, and never base your self worth on someone else’s views / opinions.
Each collection is inspired by a Saga written by the designer Kimberley Stacey. This suit is part of the Aría Saga Collection. Aría is a strong Icelandic woman that lived with her mother in the hidden valleys beyond the mountains deep in Iceland. The saga tells of how she didn’t let anything get in the way of her passion and in the end she becomes a strong, independent woman. You can read the full saga here >>
TISKA London is a sustainable fashion label and promotes slow fashion.
Fast fashion is mass produced meaning prices stay low. With the prices being so low it encourages consumers to buy more than is needed resulting in more landfill. Around 1 million tonnes of textiles are thrown away every year. Every time it rains, water drains through all the rubbish and, as a result, picks up chemical and hazardous materials. This includes chemicals used in clothing such as dyes and bleaches.
While in contrast Slow fashion means slow consumption, consequently resulting in less pressure on the environment to produce raw materials. You can read more about why TISKA London believes slow fashion is better here >>
