100% Vegan Fashion, 100% Vegan Brands

HUMAN & ANIMAL FRIENDLY

Founded in 2016 in Sicily by three sisters, Kweder brand takes inspiration from the inner soul of the place it was born in. A millenary yet ever-new region, particularly sensitive to embracing a huge variety of contemporary stimuli and renewing with smartness and creativity the heritage of its extraordinary traditions.

This is the reason why the brand mission focuses on a close link with the national territory and on a regional production, whose aim is to create high quality vegan made in Italy products realized starting from an accurate know-how of local firms through a conscious and transparent resource use, thus guaranteeing sustainability and traceability of the industry.

A similar fashion production enhances beauty, quality, craftsmanship and ethics, highlighting how to create a fashion item according to the preservation of the world we live in.

All this can be achieved in daring bold combinations, as suggested by the energetic character of this beautiful island, mixing materials and colours that conquer thanks to their visual, tactile and emotional power. Continuity and innovation, paired with the intention to move the focus on the knowledge and revaluation of executive traditions, will keep on bringing prestige to made in Italy & made in Sicily.

The Project

The aim of this project is to revaluate and implement in a virtuous, ethic and sustainable way the feeling of belonging and the awareness of the importance of quality craftsmanship, as a form of shared protection and industry support. All this is combined with the willingness to focus on the ancient arts and professions of the Italian tradition, on the local experience and productivity, seen as a tool to set the basis for a new business, to empower the indigenous craftsmanship and innovate it in order to promote and instil the huge Italian and Sicilian cultural and environmental heritage.

Kweder brand has its roots in the various craft-guilds flourished through time in Sicily and in the Italian manufacturing history. It affirms its strong belief in the possibility to search, express, celebrate what is considered ‘beauty’ through the exaltation of facts, personalities, truths, symbols, memories and projects. How is this possible? By using nature and life-preserving principles, without animal-derived ingredients, by pursuing care, empathy and harmony, by triggering new social relationships and new lifestyles through unusual expressive ways.

Corporate Responsibility

Sustainability and respect for the environment and for those who live in it are the core of the brand. This natural choice comes from a deeply rooted project whose key values are a harmonious coexistence within nature and society and pollution control. Its primary aspiration is to strengthen made in Italy through the relaunch of a local production capable to favour conscious choices and support an overall improvement of life quality.

Thinking in sustainable terms means acting in order to reduce the environmental impact of production processes, reduce consumption and realize eco-friendly products. This means redefining the possible choices to give birth to new ideas and solutions, with the aim to realize the best product with the lowest environmental impact. This is Kweder brand’s ultimate goal, trying to pursue wellness, to improve life quality and to feel increasingly responsible for the world we live in, since every single resource needs to be considered as unique and precious.
