SVILU creates sustainable, modern classics for everyday adventures. Responsibly sourced and ethically produced clothes that set a woman apart without speaking louder than she does. Founded by designers Britt Cosgrove & Marina Polo with the belief that with the privilege of creating comes a responsibility to do it in a kinder way. They take care to consider the full picture – from the environmental impact of their materials, to the conditions and standards of their factories, to the inner operations of their business – their choices reflect their mission: Mindfully Made.
SVILU /svee-loo/ comes from sviluppare, which in Italian means to: develop / expand / evolve / generate / strengthen
