GARCIABELLO is a sustainable brand inspired in everyday life, and in the paths we’ve come along. The concepts in each collection speak of what’s ours –of home as land and shelter.
The items in this collection are made out of donated hand-me-downs, old or discarded clothes. Two types of zero-waste patterns are articulated into the mould design: one of them standardizes like garments while, the other makes the most of the roll of cloth and permits to elaborate unique pices based on textiles diposed of.
The technique developed drawson up-cycling and reconstruction methods. It has simple seams and handcrafted details. We work at a humane and unhurried time, and with a small stock. Each piece is genderless and its size adapts to different body builds.
These design moves help generate comfortable timeless durable items, with a low-impact on the environment. These are garments for everyday wear that stay on for a long time.
The GARCIABELLO concept originated in Tierra del Fuego province, in the south of Argentina, by Juliana Garcia Bello (Clothes Desing, Universidad de Buenos Aires, FADU (Facultad de Arquitectura, Diseño y Urbanismo) .
